Purpose FAR Subparts 28.1 and 28.2; FAR clauses at 52.228–1, 52.228–2, 52.228– 13, 52.228–15, 52.228–16; and associated FAR standard forms implement the statutory requirements of PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the Miller Act (40 U.S.C. 3131 et seq.), which requires performance and payment bonds for any construction contract exceeding $150,000, unless it is impracticable to require bonds for work performed in a foreign country, or it is otherwise authorized by law. In addition, the note to 40 U.S.C. 3132, entitled ‘‘Alternatives to Payment Bonds Provided by the Federal Acquisition Regulation,’’ is implemented in the FAR, which requires alternative payment protection for construction contracts that exceed $30,000 but do not exceed $150,000. Although not required by statute, under certain circumstances the FAR permits the Government to require bonds on other than construction contracts. In addition to the contract clauses at FAR 52.228–1, 52.228–2, 52.228–13, 52.228–15, 52.228–16, this information collection covers the following FAR standard forms (SF) as prescribed at FAR Subparts 28.1 and 28.2: SF 25, Performance Bond; SF 25A, Payment Bond; SF 273, Reinsurance Agreement for a Miller Act Performance Bond; SF 274, Reinsurance Agreement for a Bonds Statute Payment Bond; SF 24, Bid Bond; SF 25B, Continuation Sheet (For Standard Forms 24, 25, and 25A); Standard Form 34, Annual Bid Bond; Standard Form 275, Reinsurance Agreement in Favor of the United States; Standard Form 1416, Payment Bond for Other Than Construction Contracts; Standard Form 1418, Performance Bond for Other Than Construction Contracts; and Standard Form 35, Annual Performance Bond. The information collected under this clearance provides the Government with a form of security that the contractor will not withdraw a bid or assures that the contractor will perform its obligations under a contract. Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the 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.
