Notice of request for comments regarding an extension to an existing OMB clearance (9000-0167).
Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), the Federal Acquisition Regulation, Regulatory Secretariat, will be submitting to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request to review and approve an extension of a currently approved information collection requirement concerning the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act—One-time Reporting Requirements for First-tier Subcontractors. A request for public comments was published in the Federal Register at 74 FR 14639, on March 31, 2009.
Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the FAR, and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
Submit comments on or before May 10, 2010.
Submit comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of this collection of information, including suggestions for reducing this burden to: FAR Desk Officer, OMB, Room 10102, NEOB, Washington, DC 20503, and a copy to the Regulatory Secretariat (MVCB), General Services Administration, 1800 F Street, NW., Room 4041, Washington, DC 20405. Please cite OMB Control No. 9000-0167, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act—one-time Reporting Requirements for First-tier Subcontractors, in all correspondence.Start Further Info

One-time reporting elements for which the burden is imposed only on the first-tier subcontractor include the following:
a. Unique identifier (DUNS Number) for the subcontractor receiving the award and for the subcontractor's parent company, if the subcontractor has a parent company ((i)(4)(i));
b. Subcontractor's physical address including street address, city, state, and country. Also include the nine-digit zip code and congressional district if applicable ((i)(4)(vii)); and
c. Subcontract primary performance location including street address, city, state, and country. Also include the nine-digit zip code and congressional district if applicable ((i)(4)(viii)).
The Government expects that most first-tier subcontractors will have a DUNS number. However, if a company has never received nor anticipated a Government contract, it would be required to register for a DUNS number which is not an onerous process and can be done online or by phone using information a company would have on hand for business purposes.
B. Annual Reporting Burden
Responses per Respondent: 1.25.
Total Annual Reponses: 91,700.
Hours per Response: .25.
Total Burden Hours: 22,925.
Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the information collection documents from the General Services Administration, Regulatory Secretariat (MVCB), 1800 F Street, NW., Room 4041, Washington, DC 20405, telephone (202) 501-4755.
