SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

GSA is amending the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to revise GSAR/GSAM clauses to address use of the Industrial Funding Fee (IFF) under the Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) Program, to reflect the current use of the Industrial Funding Fee including the authority to offset losses in other Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) programs and fund initiatives that benefit other FAS programs.

Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary 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; and ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected.

B. Discussion and Analysis

One comment pertaining to the collection was received.

Comment 1: Commenter supports the proposed change to the GSAR that will increase the transparency of how the IFF is used. However, felt that the estimated burden was understated based on the time and money vendors spend developing systems to track purchases and ensuring that reporting is accurate.

GSA Response: Estimated burden hours already take into consideration the varying amount of time it can take to comply with the clause each quarter and is meant to represent an average across the entire Multiple Award Schedules Program.

No changes were made to the collection as a result of the comment received.

C. Annual Reporting Burden

Respondents: 19,000.

Responses per Respondent: 4.

Total Responses: 76,000.

Hours per Response: .0833.

Total Burden Hours: 6,330.80.
