SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

This information requirement consists of information used by FAS to evaluate vendors' offers, ordering activities when placing orders against the contract, and other FSS vendors to conduct market research when submitting proposals.

A request for public comments published in the Federal Register at 79 FR 54125 on September 10, 2014 as part of a proposed rule under GSAR case 2013-G502.

Three comments were received on the Information Collection (IC). The comments received questioned the impact and methodologies used to calculate burden estimates. In response, GSA provided clarification explaining the impact and the methodologies used to calculate burden estimates. The calculated burden estimates did not change as a result of the comments. Full responses to the inquiries are included in the Final Rule publication.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35) does apply because the final rule contains eight (8) clauses and provisions with information collection requirements.

The remaining seven (7) clauses and provisions involve information collection requirements that have not previously been approved by OMB.
