Purpose GSA is proposing to amend the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to add clause 552.243–81 Modifications (Federal Supply Schedule) and an Alternate I version of the clause that E:\FR\FM\17SEN1.SGM 17SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 180 / Tuesday, September 17, 2013 / Notices requires electronic submission of modifications for FSS contracts managed by GSA. Under the modifications clause, vendors may request a contract modification by submitting a request to the Contracting Officer for approval. At a minimum, every request shall describe the proposed change(s) and provide the rationale for the requested change(s). The initial clause, previously at GSAR 552.243–72 Modifications (Multiple Award Schedule), is being reinstated at GSAR 552.238–81, Modifications (Federal Supply Schedule). The alternate version of the clause implements and mandates electronic submission of modifications, and only applies to FSS contracts managed by GSA. The alternate version of the clause links to GSA’s electronic tool, eMod at http://eoffer.gsa.gov/. Use of eMod will streamline the modification submission process for both FSS contractors and contracting officers. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) does not have access to eMod, and is therefore not required to comply with the requirements of the Alternate I version of GSAR clause 552.238–81, Modifications (Federal Supply Schedule). VA will continue to utilize the basic version of the clause in management of their FSS contracts. B. Discussion and Analysis A notice for this collection was published in the Federal Register at 78 FR 31879, on May 28, 2013. One comment was received that was outside the scope of the notice. As a result, no change to the burden estimate for this collection was made. Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the GSAR, and 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 appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES C.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposed Project Medical Expenditure Panel Survey— Insurance Component Employer-sponsored health insurance is the source of coverage for 78 million current and former workers, plus many of their family members, and is a cornerstone of the U.S. health care system. The Medical Expenditure Panel Survey—Insurance Component (MEPS– IC) measures the extent, cost, and coverage of employer-sponsored health insurance on an annual basis. These statistics are produced at the National, State, and sub-State (metropolitan area) level for private industry. Statistics are also produced for State and Local governments. This research has the following goals: (1) To provide data for Federal policymakers evaluating the effects of National and State health care reforms. (2) To provide descriptive data on the current employer-sponsored health insurance system and data for modeling the differential impacts of proposed health policy initiatives. (3) To supply critical State and National estimates of health insurance spending for the National Health Accounts and Gross Domestic Product. (4) To support evaluation of the impact on health insurance offered by small employers due to the implementation of Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) exchanges under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), through the addition of a longitudinal component to the sample. This study is being conducted by AHRQ through the Bureau of the Census, pursuant to AHRQ’s statutory authority to conduct and support research on healthcare and on systems for the delivery of such care, including activities with respect to the quality, effectiveness, efficiency, appropriateness and value of healthcare services and with respect to quality measurement and improvement. 42 U.S.C. 299a(a)(1) and (2).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    GSA is proposing to amend the General Services Administration

(Federal Supply Schedule) and an Alternate I version of the clause that

[[Page 57157]]

requires electronic submission of modifications for FSS contracts 
managed by GSA. Under the modifications clause, vendors may request a 
contract modification by submitting a request to the Contracting 
Officer for approval. At a minimum, every request shall describe the 
proposed change(s) and provide the rationale for the requested 
change(s).
    The initial clause, previously at GSAR 552.243-72 Modifications 
(Multiple Award Schedule), is being reinstated at GSAR 552.238-81, 
Modifications (Federal Supply Schedule).
    The alternate version of the clause implements and mandates 
electronic submission of modifications, and only applies to FSS 
contracts managed by GSA. The alternate version of the clause links to 
GSA's electronic tool, eMod at http://eoffer.gsa.gov/. Use of eMod will 
streamline the modification submission process for both FSS contractors 
and contracting officers.
    The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) does not have access to 
eMod, and is therefore not required to comply with the requirements of 
the Alternate I version of GSAR clause 552.238-81, Modifications 
(Federal Supply Schedule). VA will continue to utilize the basic 
version of the clause in management of their FSS contracts.
