    FAR 16.205, Fixed-price contracts with prospective price 
redetermination, provides for firm fixed prices for an initial period 
of the contract with prospective redetermination at stated times during 
performance. FAR 16.206, Fixed price contracts with retroactive price

determined, the firms performing under these contracts must provide

anticipated costs. The information is used to establish fair price 
adjustments to Federal contracts.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

    The estimated total burden is lower than that published the Federal

2011 information from the Federal Procurement Data System, an estimated 
230 unique contractors were awarded 1,970 fixed-price redetermination 
contracts. Thus, each vendor responded on average 8.6 times a year 
(rounded up to 9). The hours per response is increased to 2 hours after 
a reassessment of the time required to prepare and report the 
information.
    Respondents: 230.
