Federal Acquisition Regulation; Submission for OMB Review; Bankruptcy (FAR Subpart 42.9; 52.242-13), 43205 [2013-17390]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 139 / Friday, July 19, 2013 / Notices actions are usually the result of the notification required by this information requirement. The number of responses per respondent (15.96999) was derived by dividing the number of actions by the number of unique vendors. The preciseness of the number of responses demonstrates the level of review and the serious consideration given to the data gathered for this information collection. However, in response to the public comment received, the number of responses per respondent has been rounded up to 16. With regard to the estimate of 0.5 hours per response, we believe that the notification typically involves an observation of the contractors accounting and financial reporting system that available funds will fall below the 75 percent threshold within the next 60 days, followed by a very brief letter to the contracting officer referencing the applicable contract clause at FAR 52.232–20 or FAR 52.232–22. The contractor’s responsibility to foresee the availability of funds and probable cost overruns carries with it a duty to maintain an accounting and financial reporting system capable of securing timely knowledge of all probable costs before they are incurred. This information collection does not require contractors to create or maintain any record or system that the contractor does not maintain in its ordinary course of business. Therefore, the estimated burden hour per response of 30 minutes for this collection of information is valid. However, the rounding of the annual number of responses per respondent from 15.96999 to 16, based upon consideration of the information provided by the respondent, resulted in a revision to the information collection requirement to reflect an overall increase in the total public burden hours. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES C.
