Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this 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 to respond, through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. 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.
