The information reported by prime contractors will enable Federal agencies to report annually to the Office of Federal Procurement Policy concerning actions taken to implement and measure progress in carrying out the preference for biobased products required under section 9002 of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, codified at 7 U.S.C. 8102. wreier-aviles on DSK3TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES B. Discussion of Comment A notice was published on the Federal Register at 76 FR 41179, on July 13, 2011. Only one comment was received in response to the Federal Register notice. The respondent stated that the current Federal Acquisition Regulation already requires contractors to make maximum use of (USDA)designated biobased products, and, therefore, contractors should already be keeping certain records. The respondent concluded that the new information collection requirement, for contractors to report annually to the Government, should not be burdensome. This comment did not result in a change to the estimated burden. C. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 48,376. Responses Per Respondent: 5. Hours Per Response: 5. Total Burden Hours: 1,209,400.
