(2) Would it be meaningful, from the private sector perspective, to characterize an ‘‘immediate owner,’’ as the business entity, which has the most direct and proximate ownership or control of the offeror? If not, then please suggest an alternative characterization. (3) Would it be meaningful, from the private sector perspective, to characterize the ‘‘highest-level owner’’ as a business entity, which owns or controls the one or more business entities that own or control the offeror? If not, then please suggest an alternative characterization. (4) Would it be meaningful, from the private sector perspective, to characterize an ‘‘owner’’ as a business entity, other than the offeror that owns or controls the offeror, or that owns or controls other business entities that own or control the offeror? An owner could then be either an immediate owner or a highest-level owner. If not meaningful, then please suggest an alternative characterization. (5) One potential approach is for the offeror to provide with its offer the immediate owner Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) code along with the legal name, and the highestlevel owner CAGE code along with the legal name (if a higher-level entity exists). If this process is considered burdensome, what are the potential ways to mitigate such burden?
