Start Supplemental Information
The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35) applies because the final rule contains two (2) clauses with information collection requirements. Accordingly, the Regulatory Secretariat has submitted a request for approval of a new information collection requirement concerning this rule to the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
The information collected is used by PBS to evaluate contractor's proposals and negotiate contract modifications during contract administration.
B. Annual Reporting Burden
Total public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 400 total hours ($31,020) annually, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. The estimated burden hours to the public for the below clauses are as follows:
The new clause at GSAR 552.236-79, Construction-Contractor-as-Constructor, requires the contractor to submit proposals to establish the final estimated cost of the work, to convert the contract to a firm-fixed-price, and to determine the final settlement.
Responses per Respondent: 1.
Total Annual Responses: 10.
Hours per Response: 40.
Total Response Burden Hours: 400.
Cost per Hour: $77.55.
Estimated Cost Burden to the Public: $31,020.
The new clause at GSAR 552.236-80, Accounting Records, contains a recordkeeping requirement that is subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.). The clause requires the contractor to keep all relevant documents for a period of three years after the final payment. However, the clause does not add burden to what is already estimated for the existing FAR clause at 52.215-2, Audit and Records by a previous information collection (see OMB Control Number 9000-0034).
C. Public Comments
A request for public comments published in the Federal Register at 83 FR 55838 on November 8, 2018 as part of a proposed rule under GSAR case 2015-G506. There were no comments received on the information collection, therefore there were no changes to the calculated burden estimates.
Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of Start Printed Page 42918information is necessary 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; and ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected.
Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the information collection supporting statement from the General Services Administration, Regulatory Secretariat Division, 1800 F Street NW, Washington, DC 20405.
Please cite OMB Control No. 3090-XXXX, Construction Manager as Constructor, in all correspondence.
