Needs and Uses: This information collection permits offerors to propose alternatives to military preservation, packaging, or packing specifications. DoD uses the information in the offeror’s proposal to determine if the alternate preservation, packaging, or packing will meet the Government’s needs. In addition, this information collection permits offerors to propose Single Process Initiative (SPI) processes as alternatives to military or Federal specifications and standards cited in DoD solicitations for previously developed items. DoD uses the information in the offeror’s proposal to verify Government acceptance of an SPI process as a valid replacement for a military or Federal specification or standard. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit institutions. Annual Burden Hours: 1,724. Number of Respondents: 581. Responses per Respondent: Approximately 3. Annual Responses: 1,762. Average Burden per Response: Approximately 1 hour. Frequency: On occasion. Summary of Information Collection The provision at DFARS 252.211– 7004, Alternate Preservation, Packaging, and Packing, is used in solicitations that include military preservation, VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:21 May 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 packaging, or packing specifications, when it is feasible for DoD to evaluate and award using commercial or industrial preservation, packaging, or packing. If the offeror chooses to propose alternate preservation, packaging, or packing, the provision requires the offeror to submit information sufficient to allow evaluation of the proposed commercial or industrial preservation, packaging, or packing. The clause at DFARS 252.211–7005, Substitutions for Military or Federal Specifications and Standards, is used in solicitations and contracts for previously developed items. The clause encourages offerors to propose management or manufacturing processes, that have been previously accepted by DoD under the SPI program, as alternatives to military or Federal specifications and standards cited in the solicitation. An offeror proposing to use an SPI process must— (1) Identify the specific military or Federal specification or standard for which the SPI process has been accepted; (2) Identify each facility at which the offeror proposes to use the SPI process in lieu of military or Federal specifications or standards cited in the solicitation; (3) Identify the contract line items, subline items, components, or elements affected by the SPI process; and (4) If the proposed SPI process has been accepted at the facility at which it is proposed for use, but is not yet listed at the SPI Internet site, submit documentation of DoD acceptance of the SPI process.
