FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Karlos Morgan, Procurement Analyst, Contract Policy Division, GSA, (202) 501–2364 or via email at karlos.morgan@gsa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose The objective of consent to subcontract, as discussed in FAR Part 44, is to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness with which the contractor spends Government funds, and complies with Government policy when subcontracting. The Government requires a contractor to provide certain information (e.g., subcontractor’s name, type of subcontract, price, description of supply or services, etc.) reasonably in advance of placing a subcontract to ensure that the proposed subcontract is appropriate for the risks involved and consistent with current policy and PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 sound business judgment. The information provides the Government a basis for granting, or withholding consent to subcontract. B. Discussion and Analysis Comment: The respondent questioned whether the extension of the information collection would violate the fundamental purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act because of the burden it puts on the entity submitting the information and the agency collecting the information. Response: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), agencies can request OMB approval of an existing information collection. The PRA requires that agencies use the Federal Register notice and comment process, to extend OMB’s approval, at least every three years. This extension, to a previously approved information collection, pertains to FAR Subpart 44.2, Consent to subcontract and the contract clause at FAR 52.244–2, Subcontracts. The purpose of the clause is to provide the prime contractor with consent to perform some requirements of the contract through the use of a subcontract or subcontractor. Prime contractors and the government have a direct legal relationship; however, the government does not have such a relationship with subcontractors. As a result, the prime contractor is obligated to ensure that the requirements of the contract are met properly, including those requirements performed by the subcontractor. Failure to grant this extension would have a detrimental impact on a contractor’s ability to provide goods and services to the Federal Government. Comment: The respondent questioned that the agency did not accurately estimate the public burden challenging that the agency’s methodology for calculating it is insufficient and inadequate and does not reflect the total burden. For this reason, the respondent provided that the Agency should reassess the estimated total burden hours and revise the estimate upwards to be more accurate, as was done in FAR Case 2007–006. The respondent also provided that the burden of compliance with the information collection requirement greatly exceeds the agency’s estimate and outweighs any potential utility of the extension. Response: Serious consideration is given, during the open comment period, to all comments received and adjustments are made to the paperwork burden estimate based on reasonable considerations provided by the public. This is evidenced, as the respondent notes, in FAR Case 2007–006 where an E:\FR\FM\13SEN1.SGM 13SEN1
