9000-0091, Anti-Kickback Procedures.
B. Needs and Uses
Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.203-7, Anti-Kickback Procedures, requires that all contractors have in place and follow reasonable procedures designed to prevent and detect in its own operations and direct business relationships, violations of 41 U.S.C. chapter 87, Kickbacks. Whenever prime contractors or subcontractors have reasonable grounds to believe that a violation of the statute may have occurred, they are required to report the possible violation in writing to the contracting agency inspector general, the head of the contracting agency if an agency does not have an inspector general, or the Department of Justice. The information is used to determine if any violations of the statute have occurred.
There is no Governmentwide data collection process or system which identifies the number of alleged violations of 41 U.S.C. chapter 87, Kickbacks, that are reported annually to agency inspectors general, the heads of the contracting agency if an agency does not have an inspector general, or the Department of Justice.Start Printed Page 65158
C. Annual Burden
Total Annual Responses: 100.
Total Burden Hours: 2,000.
D. Public Comment
A 60-day notice was published in the Federal Register at 84 FR 44619, on August 26, 2019. One comment was received; however, it did not change the estimate of the burden.
Comment: The commenter asked for support in urging and supporting Senator Thune to reintroduce S. 545, the Pay Our Coast Guard Act, and seek quick action in bringing it to the floor for a vote. The act was introduced in the 114th Congress to make continuous appropriations for Coast Guard pay for a government shutdown.
Response: This comment is out of scope because the information collection requirements covered through OMB Control No. 9000-0091 do not relate to the topic of appropriations for Coast Guard pay.
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. Please cite OMB Control No. 9000-0091, Anti-Kickback Procedures, in all correspondence.
