SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    The Affidavit of Individual Surety (Standard Form (SF) 28) is used 
by all executive agencies, including the Department of Defense, to 
obtain information from individuals wishing to serve as sureties to 
Government bonds. To qualify as a surety on a Government bond, the 
individual must show a net worth not less than the penal amount of the 
bond on the SF 28. It is an elective decision on the part of the maker 
to use individual sureties instead of other available sources of surety 
or sureties for Government bonds.
    The information on SF 28 is used to assist the contracting officer 
in determining the acceptability of individuals proposed as sureties.
    A notice published in the Federal Register at 76 FR 22706, April 
22, 2011 and two comments were received. Both commenters support the 
extension of this information collection. In addition to supporting the 
extension, both commenters suggested some revisions/enhancements to the 
current Standard Form 28. These suggestions will be taken into 
consideration.

the ``Response per Respondent'' and ``Hours per Response'' categories. 
The 1.43, responses per respondent, has been lowered to 1. to 
adequately reflect this category. A respondent has to respond 
completely not partially when submitting this form. The ``Hours per 
Response'' category has been decreased to .3 (18 minutes) from .4 (24 
minutes) to reflect the benefit of the electronic capability of 
fillable-fileable forms. Respondents no longer have to print, scan, and 
then electronically submit or print and then physically mail forms
