A. Purpose

This regulation prescribes labor standards for Federally financed and assisted construction contracts subject to the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts (DBRA), as well as labor standards for nonconstruction contracts subject to the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act (CWHSSA).

The recordkeeping requirements in this regulation, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 22.406, are a restatement of requirements cleared under OMB control numbers 1215-0140, 1215-0149, and 1215-0017 for 29 CFR 5.5(a)(1)(i), 5.5(c), and 5.15 (records to be kept by employers under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 CFR 516, which is the basic recordkeeping regulation for all the laws administered by the Wage and Hour Division of the Employment Standards Administration).

FAR 22.406-3, implements the recordkeeping and information collection requirements prescribed in 29 CFR 5.5(a)(1)(iii) cleared under OMB control number 1215-0140 (also prescribed at 48 CFR 22.406 under OMB control number 9000-0089), by providing SF 1444, Request for Authorization of Additional Classification and Rate, for the contractor and the Government to enter the recordkeeping and information collection data required by 29 CFR 5.5(a)(1)(ii) prior to transmitting the data to the Department of Labor.

This SF 1444 places no further burden on the contractor or the Government other than the information collection burdens already cleared by OMB for 29 CFR 5.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

There is no burden placed on the public beyond that prescribed by the Department of Labor regulations.

Number of Respondents: 2599.

Responses per Respondent: 1.

Total Responses: 2599.

Average Burden Hours per Response: .5.

Total Burden Hours: 1300.

The burden hour is estimated to be time necessary for the contractor to prepare and submit the form.
