FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Curtis E. Glover, Sr., Procurement Analyst, Office of Acquisition Policy, at telephone 202–501–1448 or via email to Curtis.glover@gsa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose In accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) subpart 4.15 and the applicable clause at FAR 52.204–11, which implements the statutory requirements section 1512(c) of Division A of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Pub. L. 111–5) (Recovery Act), as a condition of receipt of funds, contractors that receive awards (or modifications to existing awards) funded, in whole or in part by the Recovery Act, shall include the onetime reporting elements for which the burden is imposed on the prime contractor. The information shall include, but is not limited to: a. Registration at http:// www.FederalReporting.gov; b. The award number for both its Government contract and first-tier subcontracts; c. Program or project title, if any, for its Government contract; (http:// wwww.whitehouse.gov/omb/recovery_ faqs_contractors); d. A description of the overall purpose and expected outcomes or results of the contract and first-tier subcontracts, including significant deliverables and, if appropriate, units of measure (http://wwww.whitehouse.gov/ omb/recovery_faqs_contractors); e. Name of the first-tier subcontractor; f. Amount of the first-tier subcontract award; g. Date of the first-tier subcontract award; h. First-tier subcontract number (The contract number assigned by the prime contractor); i. First-tier subcontractor’s physical address including street address, city, state, and country. Also include the PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 nine-digit zip code and congressional district if applicable; and j. Subcontract primary performance location including street address, city, state, and country. Also include the nine-digit zip code and congressional district if applicable. B. Annual Reporting Burden This information collection reflects a downward adjustment from what was published in the Federal Register on September 24, 2010, at 75 FR 58389, for the number of respondents required to comply with the requirements of FAR subpart 4.15 and the associated FAR clause at 52.204–11, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act—Reporting Requirements. This change is primarily due to fewer Recovery Act funds available for award. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2010, the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) indicated that there were 33,041 Recovery Act prime contract awards, including modifications (21,767 awarded to small businesses), to 8,896 unique vendors. In FY 2012, FPDS indicates that there were 6,312 Recovery Act prime contract awards, including modifications (3,156 awarded to small businesses), to 2,247 unique vendors. This change represents a decrease of approximately 75 percent from FY 2010 Recovery Act awards. Consequently, it was determined that FY 2012 FPDS data was a sufficient baseline for estimating the number of respondents per year (2,247) that would need to comply with the applicable clause associated with this information collection. The estimate number of responses per respondent is based on an estimated number of unique vendors divided by the average number of respondents. In discussions with subject matter experts, it was determined that an estimated number of responses per respondent of two, rounded down from 2.8, was sufficient to reflect the lower number of Recovery Act funds available for award. Additionally, it is estimated that the burden hours per response is thirty-six minutes (.60), which reflects no change from what was published Federal Register on September 24, 2010, at 75 FR 58389. No public comments were received in prior years that have challenged the validity of the Government’s estimate. Respondents: 2,247. Responses per Respondent: 2.0. Total Annual Reponses: 4,494. Hours per Response: .6. Total Burden Hours: 2,696. C. Public Comments Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of E:\FR\FM\03SEN1.SGM 03SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 170 / Tuesday, September 3, 2013 / Notices 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.

Proposed Project Prevention of Child Maltreatment through Policy Change—NEW— National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The prevalence and consequences of child maltreatment (CM) make it a public health concern that requires early and effective prevention. Public policies can be critical in shaping every level of the social ecology, including individuals, families, and communities, and thus have the potential to play a key role in the prevention of CM. In order to protect children and youth and build an evidence-base of effective prevention strategies, evaluation of public policies are needed, including those policies currently being implemented. Policies related to family income (e.g., Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) eligibility and inroads to related services) were identified by CDC through the Division of Violence Prevention’s Public Health Leadership Initiative policy analysis as those that are in need of rigorous evaluation. CDC requests OMB approval for a period of two years in order to perform a data collection, which will provide data for a larger outcome evaluation that seeks to understand if countyadministered policy strategies of the TANF program result in lower rates of CM and associated child welfare outcomes (e.g., time to adoption). The proposed data collection will include surveys and semi-structured interviews with state and county-level government PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54253 employees and partners in Colorado to address three primary aims: (1) To understand how a state policy allowing counties to administer TANF programs with flexibility contributes to countylevel adoption of integrated welfare and child welfare service models; (2) to develop and refine an Implementation Index, which will quantify the degree of integration between welfare and child welfare services; and (3) to inform the larger outcome evaluation, which examines whether TANF policies and program supports reduce rates of CM when they are delivered in an integrated welfare and child welfare service model. Understanding how service integration between TANF and child welfare affects CM may be very important to improving CDC’s ability to devise and implement effective population-based prevention strategies. Approximately 188 Colorado state and county employees and partners form the sample population. Specifically, state- and county-level employees working in welfare and/or child welfare agencies will be invited to complete a brief survey and an hourlong semi-structured interview. This study population includes individuals employed in the following positions: County-Level Child Welfare Workers, State-Level Administrators, County Directors of Human Services, Child Welfare Services and Colorado Works Leadership/Manager, Child Welfare Services and Colorado Works Case Manager, Caseworker, Technician, and Other Client-Serving Staff. An additional 72 individuals employed by Allied Staff (e.g., Housing, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Medicaid, Child Care) and Partners of Child Welfare and Colorado Works will also be invited to complete an hour-long semi-structured interview. For the survey, 116 project participants will respond to the survey once, where each response requires 15 minutes: 116 (responses total) × 1 (responses per total project period) × 15/60 (hour per response) = 30 total survey burden hours. For the semi-structured interview, 188 project participants will respond to the interview once, where this response requires 188 total semistructured interview burden hours. The total burden hours for this proposed data collection are 218. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. E:\FR\FM\03SEN1.SGM 03SEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    In accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) subpart 
4.15 and the applicable clause at FAR 52.204-11, which implements the 
statutory requirements section 1512(c) of Division A of the American 
Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Pub. L. 111-5) (Recovery Act), 
as a condition of receipt of funds, contractors that receive awards (or 
modifications to existing awards) funded, in whole or in part by the 
Recovery Act, shall include the one-time reporting elements for which 
the burden is imposed on the prime contractor. The information shall 
include, but is not limited to:
    a. Registration at http://www.FederalReporting.gov;
    b. The award number for both its Government contract and first-tier 
subcontracts;
    c. Program or project title, if any, for its Government contract; 
(http://wwww.whitehouse.gov/omb/recovery_faqs_contractors);
    d. A description of the overall purpose and expected outcomes or 
results of the contract and first-tier subcontracts, including 
significant deliverables and, if appropriate, units of measure (http://wwww.whitehouse.gov/omb/recovery_faqs_contractors);
    e. Name of the first-tier subcontractor;
    f. Amount of the first-tier subcontract award;
    g. Date of the first-tier subcontract award;
    h. First-tier subcontract number (The contract number assigned by 
the prime contractor);
    i. First-tier subcontractor's physical address including street

and congressional district if applicable; and
    j. Subcontract primary performance location including street 
address, city, state, and country. Also include the nine-digit zip code 
and congressional district if applicable.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

    This information collection reflects a downward adjustment from 
what was published in the Federal Register on September 24, 2010, at 75 
FR 58389, for the number of respondents required to comply with the 
requirements of FAR subpart 4.15 and the associated FAR clause at 
52.204-11, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act--Reporting 
Requirements. This change is primarily due to fewer Recovery Act funds 
available for award.
    In Fiscal Year (FY) 2010, the Federal Procurement Data System 
(FPDS) indicated that there were 33,041 Recovery Act prime contract 
awards, including modifications (21,767 awarded to small businesses), 
to 8,896 unique vendors. In FY 2012, FPDS indicates that there were 
6,312 Recovery Act prime contract awards, including modifications 
(3,156 awarded to small businesses), to 2,247 unique vendors. This 
change represents a decrease of approximately 75 percent from FY 2010 
Recovery Act awards. Consequently, it was determined that FY 2012 FPDS 
data was a sufficient baseline for estimating the number of respondents 
per year (2,247) that would need to comply with the applicable clause 
associated with this information collection. The estimate number of 
responses per respondent is based on an estimated number of unique 
vendors divided by the average number of respondents. In discussions 
with subject matter experts, it was determined that an estimated number 
of responses per respondent of two, rounded down from 2.8, was 
sufficient to reflect the lower number of Recovery Act funds available 
for award. Additionally, it is estimated that the burden hours per 
response is thirty-six minutes (.60), which reflects no change from 
what was published Federal Register on September 24, 2010, at 75 FR 
58389. No public comments were received in prior years that have 
challenged the validity of the Government's estimate.
    Respondents: 2,247.
    Responses per Respondent: 2.0.
    Total Annual Reponses: 4,494.
    Hours per Response: .6.
    Total Burden Hours: 2,696.

C. Public Comments

    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.
