OMB has approved this information collection for use through October 31, 2019. DoD, GSA, and NASA propose that OMB extend its approval for use for three additional years beyond the current expiration date.

DoD, GSA, and NASA will consider all comments received by October 25, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

9000-0056, Report of Shipment.

B. Need and Uses

This clearance covers the information that contractors must submit to comply with the Federal Acquisition Regulation requirement at 52.247-68, Report of Shipment (REPSHIP). This clause requires contractors to send an advanced notice to the consignee transportation office at least twenty-four hours before the arrival of a shipment, unless otherwise directed by a contracting officer.

Generally, this notification is required only for classified material; sensitive, controlled, and certain other protected material; explosives, and some other hazardous materials; selected shipments requiring movement control; or minimum carload or truckload shipments. It facilitates arrangements for transportation control, labor, space, and use of materials handling equipment at destination. Also, timely receipt of notices by the consignee transportation office precludes the incurring of demurrage and vehicle detention charges.

C. Annual Burden

Respondents: 113.

Total Annual Responses: 8,023.

Total Burden Hours: 1,340.

Obtaining Copies: Requesters may obtain a copy of the information collection documents from the General Services Administration, Regulatory Secretariat Division (MVCB), 1800 F Street NW, Washington, DC 20405, telephone 202-501-4755.
