Start Supplemental Information
A. OMB control number, Title, and any Associated Form(s): 9000-0047, Place of Performance.
B. Need and Uses: This clearance covers the information that bidders or offerors must submit to comply with the following Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) requirements:
- 52.214-14, Place of Performance-Sealed Bidding. This FAR provision is prescribed for invitation for bids (i.e. FAR part 14 procurements) where the Government did not specify the place of performance.
- 52.215-6, Place of Performance. This FAR provision is prescribed for solicitations, when contracting by negotiation (i.e. FAR part 15 procurements), where the Government did not specify the place of performance.
Both provisions ask for identical information from bidders or offerors: Whether or not they intend to use one or more plants or facilities located at a different address from the address of the bidder or offeror as indicated in their bid or offer. If the response indicates the intention to use plants or facilities located at a different location than the bidder's or offeror's address, the provisions require that bidders or offerors provide the address(es) of the other place(s) of performance, along with name and address of the owner and operator of such plant or facility (if other than the bidder or offeror).
The contracting officer uses the place of performance and the owner of the plant or facility to—
(a) Determine prospective contractor responsibility;
(b) Determine price reasonableness;
(c) Conduct plant or source inspections; and
(d) Determine whether the prospective contractor is a manufacturer or a regular dealer.
C. Annual Burden:
Total Annual Responses: 1,996,197.
Total Burden Hours: 90,827.
Obtaining Copies: Requesters may obtain a copy of the information collection documents from the GSA Regulatory Secretariat Division by calling 202-501-4755 or emailing GSARegSec@gsa.gov.
