Title, Associated Form, and OMB Number: Industry Partnership Survey, OMB Control Number 0702-0122.
Needs and Uses: The information collected from this survey will be used to systematically survey and measure industry contractors to better understand how they feel about SDDC's acquisition processes and to improve the way business is conducted. The SDDC provides global surface deployment command and control and distribution operations to meet National Security objectives in peace and war. They are working to be the Warfighter's single surface deployment/distribution provider for adaptive and flexible solutions delivering capability and sustainment on time. Respondents will be commercial firms who have contracts awarded by SDDC for several program areas.
Affected Public: Business or Other for-Profit.
Annual Burden Hours: 632.
Number of Respondents: 1,264.
Responses per Respondent: 1.
Average Burden per Response: 30 minutes.
SDDC works with industry partners in several program areas, Global Domestic Distribution Program, Freight Global Distribution Program, Personal Property Traffic Management Program, Transportation Engineering Agency, Army Ammunition & Explosives and several more. Most industry partners only provide services in one or two of the program areas, so the survey design provides for transparently skipping respondents only to the sections that are relevant to them. To make performance improvements in the operations of these programs areas, SDDC plans to undertake voluntary surveys of our “partners” in industry for 3 years from the approval/renewal date.
