Submission for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) review; comment request.
The Department of Energy (DOE) has submitted an information collection package to the OMB for extension under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The package requests a three-year extension of its “Procurement Reporting and Record Keeping Burdens,” OMB Control Number 1910-4100. This information collection package collects data that is used by the Department to exercise management oversight and control over contractors including management and operating (M&O) contractors operating DOE's facilities and other contractors furnishing goods and services with regard to implementation of applicable statutory, regulatory and contractual requirements and obligations. The information collection requires that contractors submit information pertaining to their Procurement activities such as acquisition of real property, facilities management, and subcontracting goals and reporting requirements. The collection is critical to ensure that the Government has sufficient information to judge the degree to which contractors are meeting requirements, that public funds are spent in an efficient and effective manner and that fraud, waste and abuse are avoided.
