SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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 element for which the burden is imposed on certain prime contractors and first-tier subcontractors to publicly disclose the names and total compensation of each of the contractor’s or first-tier subcontractor’s five most highly compensated officers, for the calendar year in which the award was made. While Section 1512(c)(4) of the Recovery Act requires reporting on all Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA) data elements, including the compensation information, it limits the prime contractor’s reporting responsibility to first tier subcontractors that meet the applicability requirements. The FAR clause requires this compensation VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:10 Sep 04, 2013 Jkt 229001 disclosure for prime contractors as well as first-tier subcontractors. Excluding prime contractors while requiring disclosure for first-tier subcontractors would be unsupportable given the transparency goals of both FFATA and the Recovery Act. There are likely to be some prime contractors that already provide public access to the compensation of senior executives through periodic reports filed under section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or section 6104 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. There are also likely to be some first-tier subcontractors that do not meet the revenue thresholds for applicability. 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 58387, 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 a result of the lower amount of 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. The number of first-tier subcontractors estimated to participate in Recovery Act awards is 4,494. This was derived by estimating two first-tier subcontractors for each prime contractor. It was determined that the FY 2012 FPDS data regarding the number of unique vendors combined with the assumption of two first-tier subcontractors for each prime contractor was a sufficient baseline for estimating the number of respondents (prime contractors and first-tier subcontractors) that would need to comply with the applicable clause associated with this information collection (6,741). In discussions with subject matter experts, it was also 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 three-hours (3.0), which reflects no PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 54649 change from what was published in the Federal Register on September 24, 2010, at 75 FR 58387.

Hours per Response: 3.0. Total Burden Hours: 40,446. C. Public Comments 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.

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 element for which 
the burden is imposed on certain prime contractors and first-tier 
subcontractors to publicly disclose the names and total compensation of 
each of the contractor's or first-tier subcontractor's five most highly 
compensated officers, for the calendar year in which the award was 
made.
    While Section 1512(c)(4) of the Recovery Act requires reporting on 
all Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA) data 
elements, including the compensation information, it limits the prime 
contractor's reporting responsibility to first tier subcontractors that 
meet the applicability requirements. The FAR clause requires this 
compensation disclosure for prime contractors as well as first-tier 
subcontractors. Excluding prime contractors while requiring disclosure 
for first-tier subcontractors would be unsupportable given the 
transparency goals of both FFATA and the Recovery Act. There are likely 
to be some prime contractors that already provide public access to the 
compensation of senior executives through periodic reports filed under 
section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or 
section 6104 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. There are also 
likely to be some first-tier subcontractors that do not meet the 
revenue thresholds for applicability.

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 58387, 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 a result of the lower amount of 
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. 
The number of first-tier subcontractors estimated to participate in 
Recovery Act awards is 4,494. This was derived by estimating two first-
tier subcontractors for each prime contractor. It was determined that 
the FY 2012 FPDS data regarding the number of unique vendors combined 
with the assumption of two first-tier subcontractors for each prime 
contractor was a sufficient baseline for estimating the number of 
respondents (prime contractors and first-tier subcontractors) that 
would need to comply with the applicable clause associated with this 
information collection (6,741).
    In discussions with subject matter experts, it was also 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 three-hours (3.0), which reflects no 
change from what was published in the Federal Register on September 24, 
2010, at 75 FR 58387. No public comments were received in prior years 
that have challenged the validity of the Government's estimate.
    Respondents: 6,741.
    Responses per Respondent: 2.0.
    Total Annual Reponses: 13,482.
    Hours per Response: 3.0.
    Total Burden Hours: 40,446.

C. Public Comments

    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.

information collection documents from the General Services 
Administration, Regulatory Secretariat (MVCB), 1800 F Street, NW.,
