SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    Value engineering is the technique by which contractors (1) 
voluntarily suggest methods for performing more economically and share 
in any resulting savings or (2) are required to establish a program to 
identify and submit to the Government methods for performing more 
economically. These recommendations are submitted to the Government as 
value engineering change proposals (VECP's) and they must include 
specific information. This information is needed to enable the 
Government to evaluate the VECP and, if accepted, to arrange for an 
equitable sharing plan.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

    Respondents: 400.
    Responses Per Respondent: 4.
    Annual Responses: 1,600.
    Hours Per Response: 30.
    Total Burden Hours: 48,000.
    Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the 
information collection documents from the General Services 
Administration, FAR Secretariat (VPR), Room 4035, 1800 F Street, NW, 
Washington, DC 20405, telephone (202) 501-4755. Please cite OMB Control
