Needs and Uses: DoD contracting officers use DD Form 1861 in computing profit objectives for negotiated contracts. A DD Form 1861 is normally completed for each proposal for a contract for supplies or services that is priced and negotiated on the basis of cost analysis. The form enables contracting officers to differentiate profit objectives for various types of contractor assets (land, buildings, equipment). DoD needs this information to develop appropriate profit objectives when negotiating Government contracts. DoD contracting officers need the information required by DFARS 215.407–5, Estimating systems, and the related contract clause at 252.215–7002, Cost Estimating System Requirements, to determine if a contractor has an acceptable system for generating cost estimates, and to monitor the correction of any deficiencies.

The contracting officer uses DD Form 1861 to record and compute contract facilities capital cost of money and facilities capital employed, and carries the facilities capital employed amount to DD Form 1547 to develop a profit objective. When the weighted guidelines method is used as one of the three structured approaches for developing a prenegotiation profit or fee objective in accordance with DFARS 215.404–4, completion of DD Form 1861 requires contractor information not included on Form CASB–CMF, i.e., distribution percentages of land, buildings, and equipment for the business unit performing the contract.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title, Associated Form, and OMB Number: Defense Federal Acquisition 
Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Subpart 215.4, Contract Pricing; DD Form 
1861, Contract Facilities Capital Cost of Money; OMB Control Number 
0704-0232.
    Needs and Uses: DoD contracting officers use DD Form 1861 in 
computing profit objectives for negotiated contracts. A DD Form 1861 is 
normally completed for each proposal for a contract for supplies or 
services that is priced and negotiated on the basis of cost analysis. 
The form enables contracting officers to differentiate profit 
objectives for various types of contractor assets (land, buildings, 
equipment). DoD needs this information to develop appropriate profit 
objectives when negotiating Government contracts.
    DoD contracting officers need the information required by DFARS 
215.407-5, Estimating systems, and the related contract clause at 
252.215-7002, Cost Estimating System Requirements, to determine if a 
contractor has an acceptable system for generating cost estimates, and 
to monitor the correction of any deficiencies.
    Affected Public: Businesses and other for-profit entities.
    Number of Respondents: 10,300.
    Responses per Respondent: Approximately 5.
    Annual Responses: 53,458.
    Average Burden per Response: Approximately 10 hours.
    Annual Response Burden Hours: 538,480.
    Reporting Frequency: On occasion.

Summary of Information Collection

    DFARS 215.404-71-4, Facilities capital employed, requires the use 
of DD Form 1861 as a means of linking Form CASB-CMF, Facilities Capital 
Cost of Money Factors Computation, and DD Form 1547, Record of Weighted 
Guidelines Application. The contracting officer uses DD Form 1861 to 
record and compute contract facilities capital cost of money and 
facilities capital employed, and carries the facilities capital 
employed amount to DD Form 1547 to develop a profit objective. When the 
weighted guidelines method is used as one of the three structured 
approaches for developing a prenegotiation profit or fee objective in 
accordance with DFARS 215.404-4, completion of DD Form 1861 requires 
contractor information not included on Form CASB-CMF, i.e., 
distribution percentages of land, buildings, and equipment for the 
business unit performing the contract.
    DFARS 215.407-5, Estimating systems, and the clause at 252.215-
7002, Cost Estimating System Requirements, require that certain large 
business contractors--
    [cir] Establish an acceptable cost estimating system and disclose 
the estimating system to the administrative contracting officer (ACO) 
in writing;
    [cir] Maintain the estimating system and disclose significant 
changes in the system to the ACO on a timely basis; and
    [cir] Respond in writing to written reports from the Government 
that identify deficiencies in the estimating system.
