SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose If it is in the best interest of the Government, the contracting officer may authorize cost-reimbursement contractors to obtain, for official purposes only, interagency fleet management system (IFMS) vehicles and related services. Before a contracting officer may authorize costreimbursement contractors to obtain IFMS vehicles and related services, the contracting officer must have, among other requirements: (1) A written statement that the contractor will assume, without the right of reimbursement from the Government, the cost or expense of any use of the IFMS vehicles and services not related to the performance of the contract; (2) Evidence that the contractor has obtained motor vehicle liability insurance covering bodily injury and property damage, with limits of liability as required or approved by the agency, protecting the contractor and the Government against third-party claims arising from the ownership, maintenance, or use of an IFMS vehicle; and (3) Considered any recommendations of the contractor. The information is used by the Government to determine whether it is in the Government’s best interest to authorize a cost-reimbursement contractor, for official purposes only, to use IFMS vehicles and related services. Authorized contractors shall submit requests for IFMS vehicles and related services in writing to the appropriate GSA point of contact in accordance with the FAR.

B. Annual Reporting Burden The time required to read and prepare information is estimated at 1 hour. Per a data search in the Federal Procurement Data System, approximately 120 contracting agencies awarded cost reimbursable contracts in Fiscal Year 2012. Of these agencies, it is estimated that approximately fifty percent, or 60, contracting agencies may utilize the IFMS to provide vehicles to contractors for official purposes only. We are not aware of a centralized database which captures information on agencies’ use of the IFMS for this information collection; however, agencies annually report motor vehicle fleet data using the GSA Federal Automotive Statistical Tool (FAST), a web-based reporting tool cosponsored by GSA and the Department of Energy. Based on information in the Fiscal Year 2011 report, the estimate of 60 contracting agencies that may utilize the IFMS to provide vehicles to contractors is reasonable. It is estimated that an average of 3 contractors per agency may request to use the IFMS for a total of approximately 180 requests per year. The requests should be limited because certain travel costs are allowable under cost-reimbursement contracts, including the costs of contractor-owned or -leased automobiles. FAR 31.205–46(d) provides that these costs are allowable, if reasonable, to the extent that the automobiles are used for company business. Estimated respondents/yr: 180.

The rate cannot be lower than the Department of Treasury’s current value of funds rate or the applicable rate determined from the ‘‘Schedule of Certified Interest Rates with Range of Maturities’’ unless the Secretary waives interest in whole or part, or a different rate is prescribed by statute, contract, or repayment agreement. The Secretary of the Treasury may revise this rate quarterly. The Department of Health and Human Services publishes this rate in the Federal Register. The current rate of 101⁄8%, as fixed by the Secretary of the Treasury, is certified for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. This rate is based on the Interest Rates for Specific Legislation, ‘‘National Health Services Corps Scholarship Program (42 U.S.C. 250(B)(1)(A))’’ and ‘‘National Research Service Award Program (42 U.S.C. 288(c)(4)(B)).’’ This interest rate will be applied to overdue debt until the Department of Health and Human Services publishes a revision.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    If it is in the best interest of the Government, the contracting 
officer may authorize cost-reimbursement contractors to obtain, for 
official purposes only, interagency fleet management system (IFMS) 
vehicles and related services. Before a contracting officer may 
authorize cost-reimbursement contractors to obtain IFMS vehicles and 
related services, the contracting officer must have, among other 
requirements: (1) A written statement that the contractor will assume, 
without the right of reimbursement from the Government, the cost or 
expense of any use of the IFMS vehicles and services not related to the 
performance of the contract; (2) Evidence that the contractor has 
obtained motor vehicle liability insurance covering bodily injury and 
property damage, with limits of liability as required or approved by 
the agency, protecting the contractor and the Government against third-
party claims arising from the ownership, maintenance, or use of an IFMS 
vehicle; and (3) Considered any recommendations of the contractor. The 
information is used by the Government to determine whether it is in the 
Government's best interest to authorize a cost-reimbursement 
contractor, for official purposes only, to use IFMS vehicles and 
related services.
    Authorized contractors shall submit requests for IFMS vehicles and 
related services in writing to the appropriate GSA point of contact in 
accordance with the FAR. Contractors' requests for

request the vehicles or related services; (4) A listing of equipment 
authorized to be serviced; and (5) Billing instructions and address.

collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
functions of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), and whether it 
will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden 
of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid 
assumptions and methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and 
clarity of the information to be collected; and ways in which we can 
minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are
