SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    This information collection complies with Section 6002 of the 
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) (42 U.S.C. 6962). RCRA 
requires the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to designate items 
which are or can be produced with recovered materials. RCRA further 
requires agencies to develop affirmative procurement programs to ensure 
that items composed of recovered materials will be purchased to the 
maximum extent practicable. Affirmative procurement programs required 
under RCRA must contain, as a minimum: (1) a recovered materials 
preference program and an agency promotion program for the preference 
program; (2) a program for requiring estimates of the total percentage 
of recovered materials used in the performance of a contract, 
certification of minimum recovered material content actually used, 
where appropriate, and reasonable verification procedures for estimates 
and certifications; and (3) annual review and monitoring of the 
effectiveness of an agency's affirmative procurement program.
    The items for which EPA has designated minimum recovered material 
content standards are grouped into eight categories: (1) construction 
products, (2) landscaping products, (3) nonpaper office products, (4) 
paper and paper products, (5) park and recreation products, (6) 
transportation products, (7) vehicular products, and (8) miscellaneous 
products. The FAR rule also permits agencies to obtain pre-award 
information from offerors regarding the content of items which the 
agency has designated as requiring minimum percentages of recovered 
materials. There are presently no known agency designated items.
    In accordance with RCRA, the information collection applies to 
acquisitions requiring minimum percentages of recovered materials, when 
the price of the item exceeds $10,000 or when the aggregate amount paid 
for the item or functionally equivalent items in the preceding fiscal 
year was $10,000 or more.
    Contracting officers use the information to verify offeror/
contractor compliance with solicitation and contract requirements 
regarding the use of recovered materials. Additionally, agencies use 
the information in the annual review and monitoring of the 
effectiveness of the affirmative procurement programs required by RCRA.
