For information pertaining to status or publication schedules, contact the Regulatory Secretariat at 202–501–4755. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose The information on place of manufacture was formerly used by each Federal agency to prepare a report to Congress required by 41 U.S.C. 8302(b)(1) for FY 2009 through 2011 on acquisitions of articles, materials, or supplies that are manufactured outside the United States. However, the data is still necessary for analysis of the application of the Buy American statue and the trade agreements and for other reports to Congress. Additionally, contracting officers require this data as the basis for entry into the Federal Procurement Data System for further data on the rationale for purchasing foreign manufactured items. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES B. Annual Reporting Burden Based on a Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) report of Governmentwide acquisition of manufactured end products in FY 2012, a total of 427,055 contracts were awarded. Since this is a solicitation provision, we estimate an average of 4 responses per solicitation resulting in approximately 1,708,220 offers (427,055 x 4 (rounded)). Of the approximately 1,708,220 offers, the Government estimates that an average of 10 responses annually will be received from 170,822 unique vendors (1,708,220/10). Consequently, it was determined that the FY 2012 FPDS data identifying 170,822 unique vendors was a sufficient baseline for estimating the number of respondents. It is therefore estimated that approximately 170,822 respondents would need to comply with this information collection. The time required to read and prepare information is estimated at .01 hour (less than one minute) per completion. Recordkeeping will be integrated into systems already established by offerors. Estimated number of respondents: 170,822. Est. number of responses per respondent per year: x 10. Total annual responses (rounded): 1,708,220. Estimated hours per response: 0.1. Total response burden hours: 17,082. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:54 Sep 11, 2013 Jkt 229001 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. Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the information collection documents from the General Services Administration, Regulatory Secretariat (MVCB), 1800 F Street NW., 2nd floor, Washington, DC 20405–0001, telephone 202–501–4755.

Abstract: The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is notifying the public of revisions to a previously approved OCR data collection.

The information is routinely used by covered entities and business associates for treatment, payment, and health care operations. In addition, the information is used for specified public policy purposes, including research, public health, and as required by other laws. The Privacy Rule also ensures that the individuals are able to exercise certain rights with respect to their information, including the rights to access and seek amendments to their health records and to receive a Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP) from their direct treatment providers and health plans. Likely Respondents: Respondents include HIPAA covered entities and their business associates, as well as members of the public. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions, to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information, to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information, and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
