CCR collects, validates, stores, and disseminates data in support of agency acquisition missions. Both current and potential Federal Government vendors are required to register in CCR in order to be awarded contracts by the Federal Government. Vendors are required to complete a onetime registration to provide basic information relevant to procurement and financial transactions. Vendors must update or renew their registration at least once per year to maintain an active status. CCR validates the vendor information and electronically shares the secure and encrypted data with Federal agency finance offices to facilitate paperless payments through electronic funds transfer (EFT). Additionally, CCR shares the data with Federal Government procurement and electronic business systems. PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18717 B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 87,677.
