Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information collection request to the Office of Management of Budget (OMB) and solicitation of public comment.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) invites public comment about our intention to request the OMB's approval for renewal of an existing information collection that is summarized below. We are required to publish this notice in the Federal Register under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted:
1. The title of the information collection: 48 CFR 20, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Acquisition Regulation (NRCAR).
2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0169.
3. How often the collection is required: On occasion; one time.
4. Who is required or asked to report: NRC contractors and potential contractors.
5. The number of annual respondents: 2,473 respondents.
6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 20,095 (18,750 reporting plus 1,345 recordkeeping).
7. Abstract: The mandatory requirements of the NRCAR implement and supplement the Government-wide Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), and ensure that the regulations governing the procurement of goods and services within the NRC satisfy the particular needs of the agency. Because of differing statutory authorities among Federal agencies, the FAR authorizes agencies to issue regulations to implement FAR policies and procedures internally to satisfy the specific need of the agency.
