Start Supplemental Information
SF 1413, Statement and Acknowledgment, is used by all executive agencies, including the Department of Defense, to obtain a statement from contractors that the proper clauses have been included in subcontracts. The form is used by the prime contractor to identify and report all applicable subcontracts (all tiers) awarded under the prime contract, identify specific scopes of work the subcontractors will be performing, subcontract award date, and subcontract number, and provide formal notification to the applicable subcontractors of the labor laws and associated clauses they are responsible for complying with.
B. Annual Reporting Burden
A reassessment of the number of contracts awarded that required the inclusion of the SF 1413 was performed for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010, FY 2011, and FY 2012 using data obtained from the Federal Procurement Data System. Based on the comprehensive reassessment performed, it was determined that no changes to the annual number of responses and the annual time burden (from the previous information collection published in the Federal Register at 76 FR 28039 on May 13, 2011) was warranted at this time. No public comments were received in prior years that have challenged the validity of the Government's estimate.
Responses per Respondent: 2.
Total Responses: 63,000.
Hours per Response: .05.
Total Burden Hours: 3,150.
C. Public Comments
Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (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.
