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 1, 2010.
Title, Form, and OMB Number: The Contractor Manpower Reporting System; OMB Control Number 0702-0120.
Type of Request: Extension.
Number of Respondents: 12,215.
Responses per Respondent: 1.
Annual Responses: 12,215.
Average Burden per Response: 5 minutes.
Annual Burden Hours: 1,018 hours.
Needs and Uses: This program greatly enhances the ability of the Army to identify and track its contactor workforce. Current systems do not have contractor manpower data that is collected by the contractor Manpower Reporting System—i.e., Direct Labor Hours, Direct Labor Dollars and Organization supported. Existing financial and procurement systems have obligation amounts of an unknown mix of services and supplies, and the Department of the Army is not able to trace the funding to the organization supported. Like all other Federal Government agencies, the Army's reliance on service contractor employees has increased significantly over the past few years.
Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
Frequency: On occasion.
Respondent's Obligation: Required to obtain or retain benefits.
OMB Desk Officer: Ms. Jasmeet Seehra.
Written comments and recommendations on the proposed information collection should be sent to Ms. Seehra at the Office of Management and Budget, Desk Officer for DoD, Room 10236, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503.
You may also submit comments, identified by docket number and title, by the following method:
- Federal Erulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments.
Instructions: All submissions received must include the agency name, docket number and title for this Federal Register document. The general policy for comments and other submissions from members of the public is to make these submissions available for public viewing on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov as they are received without change, including any personal identifiers or contact information.
