The Department of Defense has submitted to OMB for clearance, the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
Consideration will be given to all comments received by November 7, 2005.
Title and OMB Number: Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS), part 217, Special Contracting Methods, and related clauses in part 252.217; OMB Control Number 0704-0214.
Type of Request: Extension.
Number of Respondents: 49,944.
Responses per Respondent: Approximately 1.5.
Annual Responses: 75,944.
Average Burden per Response: Approximately 10.3 hours.
Annual Burden Hours: 785,244.
Needs and Uses: Contracting officers use the information required by the provisions and clauses prescribed in DFARS part 217 as follows:
The clause at DFARS 252.217-7012 is used in master agreements for repair and alteration of vessels. Contracting officers use the information required by paragraph (d) of the clause to determine if the contractor is adequately insured. Contracting officers use the information required by paragraphs (f) and (g) of the clause to keep informed of lost or damaged property for which the Government is liable, and to determine the appropriate course of action for replacement or repair of the property.
Contracting officers use the information required by the clause at DFARS 252.217-7018 to determine the place of performance under contracts for Start Printed Page 58391bakery and dairy products. This information helps to ensure that food products are manufactured and processed in sanitary facilities.
Contracting officers use the information required by the provision at DFARS 252.217-7026 to identify the apparently successful offeror's sources of supply so that competition can be enhanced in future acquisitions. This collection complies with 10 U.S.C. 2384, Supplies: Identification of Supplier and Sources, which requires the contractor to identify the actual manufacturer or all sources of supply for supplies furnished under contract to DoD.
Contracting officers use the information required by the clause at 252.217-7028 to determine the extent of “over and above” work before the work commences. This requirement allows the Government to review the need for pending work before the contractor begins performance.
Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
Frequency: On occasion.
Respondent's Obligation: Required to obtain or retain benefits.
OMB Desk Officer: Mr. Lewis Oleinick.
Written comments and recommendations on the proposed information collection should be sent to Mr. Oleinick at the Office of Management and Budget, Desk Officer for DoD, Room 10236, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503.
