B. Annual Reporting Burden Based on data retrieved from the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) there was an estimated average of 10,152 contracts to 5,949 unique vendors that would have been subject to the termination settlement proposal forms (Standard Forms 1435 through 1440). This data was based on the estimate average number of terminations for convenience (complete or partial) for Fiscal Years, 2010, 2011, and 2012. In consultation with subject matter experts, it was determined that the 5,949 unique vendors was a sufficient baseline for estimating the number of respondents. It is therefore estimated that approximately 5,949 respondents would need to comply with this information collection. The estimated number of responses per respondent for this information collection is based on an estimated average number of respondents divided by the estimated average number of unique vendors (1.7). Additionally, in discussion with subject matter experts, it was estimated that the previously approved burden hours per response of 2.4 hours is still relevant for this information collection. No public comments were received in prior years that have challenged the validity of the Government’s estimate. The revisions to this information collection reflect a significant upward adjustment from what was published in the Federal Register at 75 FR 63831 on October 18, 2010. This increase is based on a revision to the estimated number of respondents that would be subject to this information collection. Respondents: 5,949. Responses Per Respondent: 1.7. Total Responses: 10,113. Hours Per Response: 2.4. Total Burden Hours: 24,271. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES C.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: In compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Financial Management & Comptroller announces a proposed public information collection and seeks public comment on the provisions thereof. Comments are invited on: (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

Instructions: All submissions received must include the agency name, docket number and title for this Federal Register document. The general policy for comments and other submissions from members of the public is to make these submissions available for public viewing on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov as they are received without change, including any personal identifiers or contact information. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: To request more information on this proposed information collection or to obtain a copy of the proposal and associated collection instruments, please write to the ASA (FM&C), Attn: Mr. Roger A. Pillar, 200 Stovall St., Rm: 1S49, Alexandria, VA 22314, or call Mr. Roger A. Pillar, GFEBS Functional Director at 703–545–8855. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: Supplier Self-Services (SUS); OMB Control Number 0702–TBD. Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement via SUS is necessary to reduce the amount and complexity of required input by vendors that manually enter invoice data into Wide Area Workflow (WAWF) (not those utilizing Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). By pre-populating fields with accurate and up-to-date contract information, vendors are required to input significantly less data. Additionally, SUS simultaneously performs a front-end validation of submitted data, thus ensuring less manual intervention and fewer interest penalties incurred by the government. Affected Public: Businesses (Federal Vendors). Annual Burden Hours: 640. Number of Respondents: 533. Responses per Respondent: 12. Average Burden per Response: 6 minutes. Frequency: On occasion. SUS leverages a DoD portal developed by WAWF known as ‘‘OneStop’’ that facilitates WAWF’s interaction with ERPs. Respondents are vendors that continue to utilize WAWF as the mandated single point of entry and for viewing historical records, but are routed seamlessly to the SUS module for invoice data entry referencing the ERP contract data.
