A business will receive the request and develop a query to their automated accounting system which could take an average of 30 minutes or less to review the customer records to determine which accounts have a credit balance if any. The customer ledgers would potentially show the number of USDA customers. If the business has a manual accounting system then a manual review would be required of the customer ledgers. This could take 1–2 hours depending on the size of the company. These estimates are based on the average business and entity using computers to do accounting. The estimate is based on the number of purchase orders and contracts currently in USDA procurement systems. Type of Respondents: Vendors, Contractors, Program Recipients, any Entity receiving funds from USDA. Estimated Number of Respondents: 300,000. Estimated Number of Responses: 300,000. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 600,000 hours.
