FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Cecelia L. Davis, Procurement Analyst, Office of Governmentwide Acquisition Policy, at (202) 219–0202 or Cecelia.davis@gsa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose This information collection is necessary to: (a) Determine the responsibility of prospective contractors; and (b) ensure that contractors maintain for accuracy and completeness, their integrity and performance information upon which responsibility determinations rely. Section 872 of the Duncan Hunter National Defense Authorization Act of 2009 (Public Law 110–417), enacted on October 14, 2008, required the development and maintenance of an information system that contains specific information on the integrity and performance of covered Federal agency contractors and grantees. The Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS) was developed to address these requirements. FAPIIS provides users access to integrity and performance information from the FAPIIS reporting module in the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS), as well as proceedings information and suspension/disbarment information from the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) and the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS) functions in the System for Award Management (SAM). The provision at FAR 52.209–7 requires that for each solicitation where the resultant contract value is expected to exceed $500,000, the offeror responds in paragraph (b) as to whether it has, or has not, active Federal contracts and grants that total greater than $10,000,000. Only if the offeror responds affirmatively is there any further FAPIIS-related information collection requirement. Because the total dollar amount of its current Federal contracts and grants can be quickly retrieved by any firm, the estimated number of hours for response to the check block in paragraph (b) of the provision at 52.209–7 is 0.1 hours. According to the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS), in Fiscal Year E:\FR\FM\27MRN1.SGM 27MRN1 18594 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 59 / Wednesday, March 27, 2013 / Notices 2011, contracts with values over $500,000 were awarded to 25,065 unique vendors. We estimate an average of five responses annually (i.e., the number of proposals received per solicitation issued). The clause at FAR 52.209–9 applies to solicitations where the resultant contract value is expected to exceed $500,000 and to contracts in which the offeror has indicated in paragraph (b) of the provision at 52.209–7 that it has current active Federal contracts and grants with total values greater than $10,000,000. Paragraph (a) of the clause at 52.209–9 requires the contractor to update responsibility information on a semiannual basis, throughout the life of the contract, by posting the information in the CCR. It is estimated that 5,013 respondents (or 20 percent) of the 25,065 contract awardees will indicate an affirmative answer in paragraph (b) of the provision at 52.209–7 and, pursuant to FAR 52.209–9, those contractors will then have to enter FAPIIS-related data into the CCR function in the SAM. Two responses per respondent per year are calculated for those respondents with contracts and grants greater than $10 million, because of the requirement in FAR 52.209–9 for semi-annual updates. Because the FAPIIS information in CCR is maintained on individual vendors, contractors awarded more than one contract will still only have to update the data two times per year regardless of the number of contracts awarded them. We have used an average burden estimate of 100 hours to enter the company’s data into the Web site. This time estimate also includes the average annual recordkeeping time necessary per respondent to maintain the company’s information internally. Most large businesses and some small businesses have established systems to track compliance. At this time, all or most Government contractors have entered relevant company data in the CCR in accordance with another information collection requirement. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Annual Reporting Burden Initial response (52.209–7): Respondents: 25,065.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    This information collection is necessary to: (a) Determine the 
responsibility of prospective contractors; and (b) ensure that 
contractors maintain for accuracy and completeness, their integrity and 
performance information upon which responsibility determinations rely.
    Section 872 of the Duncan Hunter National Defense Authorization Act 
of 2009 (Public Law 110-417), enacted on October 14, 2008, required the 
development and maintenance of an information system that contains 
specific information on the integrity and performance of covered 
Federal agency contractors and grantees. The Federal Awardee 
Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS) was developed to 
address these requirements. FAPIIS provides users access to integrity 
and performance information from the FAPIIS reporting module in the 
Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS), as well as 
proceedings information and suspension/disbarment information from the 
Central Contractor Registration (CCR) and the Excluded Parties List 
System (EPLS) functions in the System for Award Management (SAM).
    The provision at FAR 52.209-7 requires that for each solicitation 
where the resultant contract value is expected to exceed $500,000, the 
offeror responds in paragraph (b) as to whether it has, or has not, 
active Federal contracts and grants that total greater than 
$10,000,000. Only if the offeror responds affirmatively is there any 
further FAPIIS-related information collection requirement.
    Because the total dollar amount of its current Federal contracts 
and grants can be quickly retrieved by any firm, the estimated number 
of hours for response to the check block in paragraph (b) of the 
provision at 52.209-7 is 0.1 hours. According to the Federal 
Procurement Data System (FPDS), in Fiscal Year

[[Page 18594]]

2011, contracts with values over $500,000 were awarded to 25,065 unique 
vendors. We estimate an average of five responses annually (i.e., the 
number of proposals received per solicitation issued).
    The clause at FAR 52.209-9 applies to solicitations where the 
resultant contract value is expected to exceed $500,000 and to 
contracts in which the offeror has indicated in paragraph (b) of the 
provision at 52.209-7 that it has current active Federal contracts and 
grants with total values greater than $10,000,000. Paragraph (a) of the 
clause at 52.209-9 requires the contractor to update responsibility 
information on a semiannual basis, throughout the life of the contract, 
by posting the information in the CCR.
    It is estimated that 5,013 respondents (or 20 percent) of the 
25,065 contract awardees will indicate an affirmative answer in 
paragraph (b) of the provision at 52.209-7 and, pursuant to FAR 52.209-
9, those contractors will then have to enter FAPIIS-related data into 
the CCR function in the SAM. Two responses per respondent per year are 
calculated for those respondents with contracts and grants greater than 
$10 million, because of the requirement in FAR 52.209-9 for semi-annual 
updates. Because the FAPIIS information in CCR is maintained on 
individual vendors, contractors awarded more than one contract will 
still only have to update the data two times per year regardless of the 
number of contracts awarded them.
    We have used an average burden estimate of 100 hours to enter the 
company's data into the Web site. This time estimate also includes the 
average annual recordkeeping time necessary per respondent to maintain 
the company's information internally. Most large businesses and some 
small businesses have established systems to track compliance. At this 
time, all or most Government contractors have entered relevant company 
data in the CCR in accordance with another information collection 
requirement.
