Designation of a Class of Employees for Addition to the Special Exposure Cohort, 18350 [2013-06842]

Download as PDF 18350 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 58 / Tuesday, March 26, 2013 / Notices srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES acquisition of commercial items and services. Pertinent to this information collection is the FAR provision at 52.212–3, Offeror Representations and Certifications-Commercial Items. The provision is among the representations and certifications that are available for completion in the On-line Representation and Certification Application (ORCA) function of the System for Award Management (SAM) database. Because an offeror only has to complete representations and certifications once on an annual basis, with periodic updates, use of the ORCA function by prospective contractors decreases the number of responses per respondent per year for purposes of this information collection. ORCA was developed to eliminate the administrative burden for contractors of submitting the same information to various contracting offices, and to establish a common source for this information to procurement offices across the Government. Prior to ORCA’s implementation, prospective contractors were required to submit representations and certifications in paper form for each individual contract award. Using the ORCA function in SAM, a contractor can enter their representations and certification information once for use on all Federal contracts. FAR 4.1201(a) requires prospective contractors to complete electronic annual representations and certifications in conjunction with required registration in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR). These requiremnts are met through functionality in SAM. The ORCA function reuses data pulled from the CCR function and, in many cases, pre-populates several of the required representations and certifications with CCR data. The representations and certifications are effective until one year from the date of submission or update to the ORCA function in SAM. B. Annual Reporting Burden Because ORCA allows for multiple uses from one entry, i.e., a contractor can enter their representations and certification information once a year (with any needed updates) for use on all Federal contracts, the number of responses per respondent has decreased from the currently approved number 34 to 4. For purposes of this information collection, initial entry plus three updates are estimated as the number of responses per respondent per year, i.e., 4 responses per respondent. As of May 2012, there were 162,000 vendors registered in the ORCA function of SAM. For purposes of estimation, the number of vendors registered in the VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:07 Mar 25, 2013 Jkt 229001 ORCA function of SAM will serve as the number of respondents. Data entry by contractors is estimated at 30 minutes 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 6668, on February 10, 2010. Respondents: 162,000. Responses per Respondent: 4. Total Responses: 648,000. Hours per Response: .5. Total Burden Hours: 324,000.
