What alternative cashmanagement vehicles would investors likely move to? Would this affect the expected benefits of MMF reform? What impact would this have upon the credit markets in which MMFs invest? How should the role of other financial intermediaries be considered? What risks could that pose for financial stability? If MMFs became less attractive to potential borrowers, how might they change their financing methods? Would this affect the expected costs or benefits of MMF reform for long-term economic growth? Would yields on redeemable MMF shares decline, in light of reductions in risk? Would there be additional costs to long-term economic growth from reduced yields to MMF shareholders? If yes, what would they be? Would a reduction in profits for MMFs sponsors absorb some of the increase in costs? How would their reduced profits affect long-term economic growth? Are there factors other than borrowing costs, reduced yields to shareholders, and reduced profits for MMF sponsors that may be expected to impact longterm economic growth? Would higher short-term borrowing rates from MMFs affect other short-term borrowing rates? Are BBB corporate rates and the equity risk premium appropriate proxies for the returns likely to be demanded by providers of the NAV buffer? How should reductions in the structural vulnerability of MMFs impact the potential probability of a financial crisis? The severity of such a crisis? What additional benefits to longterm economic growth might result from reductions in the structural vulnerability of MMFs? Dated: November 13, 2012. Rebecca H.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Purpose In accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation 19.702, any contractor receiving a contract for more than the simplified acquisition threshold must agree in the contract that small business, small disadvantaged business, historically underutilized business zone (HUBZone) small business, veteran-owned small business, service-disabled veteran-owned small business, and women-owned small business concerns will have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate in contract performance consistent with its efficient performance. Further, contractors receiving a contract or a modification to a contract expected to exceed $650,000 ($1,500,000 for construction) must submit a subcontracting plan that provides maximum practicable opportunities for the above named concerns. Specific elements required to be included in the plan are specified in section 8(d) of the Small Business Act and are implemented in FAR Subpart 19.7. In conjunction with the subcontracting plan requirements, contractors must submit an annual summary (semi-annual for DOD and NASA) of subcontracts awarded by prime and subcontractors for a specific Federal Government agency that required an Individual Subcontracting plan for the previous fiscal year. This is accomplished through the use of the Standard Form 295, Summary Subcontract Report, or the Summary Subcontract Report (SSR), the electronic equivalent of the of the Standard Form 295, submitted through the Electronic E:\FR\FM\19NON1.SGM 19NON1 69484 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 223 / Monday, November 19, 2012 / Notices Subcontracting Reporting System (eSRS).

Those contract actions noted in FAR 4.606(c)(5) will continue to use the Standard Form 295. II.

Background and Brief Description One of the objectives of CDC’s epidemic services is to provide for the prevention and control of epidemics, and protect the population from public health crises such as human-made or natural biological disasters and chemical emergencies. CDC meets this objective, in part, by training investigators, maintaining laboratory capabilities for identifying potential problems, collecting and analyzing data, and recommending appropriate actions to protect the public’s health. When state, local, or foreign health authorities request help in controlling an epidemic or solving other health problems, CDC dispatches skilled epidemiologists from the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) to investigate and resolve the problem. Resolving public health problems rapidly ensures cost-effective health care and enhances health promotion and disease prevention.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Purpose

    In accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation 19.702, any 
contractor receiving a contract for more than the simplified 
acquisition threshold must agree in the contract that small business, 
small disadvantaged business, historically underutilized business zone 
(HUBZone) small business, veteran-owned small business, service-
disabled veteran-owned small business, and women-owned small business 
concerns will have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate 
in contract performance consistent with its efficient performance. 
Further, contractors receiving a contract or a modification to a 
contract expected to exceed $650,000 ($1,500,000 for construction) must 
submit a subcontracting plan that provides maximum practicable 
opportunities for the above named concerns. Specific elements required 
to be included in the plan are specified in section 8(d) of the Small 
Business Act and are implemented in FAR Subpart 19.7.
    In conjunction with the subcontracting plan requirements, 
contractors must submit an annual summary (semi-annual for DOD and 
NASA) of subcontracts awarded by prime and subcontractors for a 
specific Federal Government agency that required an Individual 
Subcontracting plan for the previous fiscal year. This is accomplished 
through the use of the Standard Form 295, Summary Subcontract Report, 
or the Summary Subcontract Report (SSR), the electronic equivalent of 
the of the Standard Form 295, submitted through the Electronic

Subcontracting Reporting System (eSRS).
    Contractors must use the SSR in lieu of the SF 295, with the 
exception of those contracts noted in FAR 4.606(c)(5) which requires 
that actions, pursuant to other authority, will not be entered in 
Federal Procurement Data System (e.g., reporting of the information 
would compromise national security). Those contract actions noted in 
FAR 4.606(c)(5) will continue to use the Standard Form 295.

II. Annual Reporting Burden

    Based on information from eSRS and an estimate of the use of eSRS, 
an upward adjustment is being made to the number of respondents, but a 
downward adjustment is being made to the average burden hours for 
reporting and recordkeeping per response. As a result, a downward 
adjustment is being made to the estimated annual reporting burden since 
the notice regarding an extension to this clearance published in the 
Federal Register at 75 FR 9603, on March 3, 2010.
    Respondents: 129,009.
    Responses per Respondent: 1.
    Total Responses: 129,009.
    Average Burden Hours per Response: 9.0.
    Total Burden Hours: 1,161,081.
    Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the 
information collection documents from the General Services 
Administration, Regulatory Secretariat (MVCB), 1275 First Street NE.,
