Title: Acquisition Services Information Requirements.

OMB Number: 3064-0072.

Form Numbers: 3064-1600/04, 1600-07, 3700-57, 3700/4A, 3700/12, 3700/44, 3700/59.

Affected Public: State nonmember banks.Start Printed Page 52275

Estimated Number of Respondents: 5135.

Estimated Average Burden per Respondent: .5 hours.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 2434 hours.

General Description of Collection: This is a collection of information involving the submission of various forms by contractors doing business with the FDIC.

FDIC Form 3700/59, Fair Inclusion of Minorities and Women, is a contract clause implementing Section 342 (c)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (12 U.S.C. 5452). The contract clause seeks a commitment from an FDIC Contractor to ensure, to the maximum extent possible consistent with applicable law, the fair inclusion of minorities and women in its workforce and the workforces of its applicable subcontractors. Further, the clause asserts the FDIC's right to request documentation from the Contractor that demonstrates the Contractor's good faith effort to include minorities and women in its workforce and subcontractors' workforces, and requires the Contractor to annually certify that it has made such good faith efforts.

FDIC Form 3700/04A, Contractor Representations and Certification, must be completed by any offeror that responds to a solicitation for an award over $100,000. The Form is being revised to add two certifications, “Certification Regarding Fair Inclusion of Minorities and Women” and “Representation by Corporations Regarding an Unpaid Delinquent Federal Tax Liability.” The “Certification Regarding Fair Inclusion of Minorities and Women” implements § 342 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (12 U.S.C. 5452) and requires an offeror to certify to its commitment to equal opportunity in employment and contracting and that it has made and will continue to make a good faith effort to ensure, to the maximum extent possible, the fair inclusion of minorities and women in its workforce and in the workforce of its applicable subcontractors. The “Representation by Corporations Regarding an Unpaid Delinquent Federal Tax Liability” implements Section 744 of Division E, Title VII, of the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015 (Pub. L. 113-235)), by requiring an offeror to represent whether it is or is not “a corporation that has any unpaid Federal tax liability that has been assessed, for which all judicial and administrative remedies have been exhausted or have lapsed, and that is not being paid in a timely manner pursuant to an agreement with the authority responsible for collecting the tax liability.”
