Purpose Federal Acquisition Regulation clause 52.223–2, Affirmative Procurement of Biobased Products Under Service and Construction Contracts, requires prime contractors to report annually the product types and dollar values of U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)designated biobased products purchased to the System for Award Management (SAM) Web site. The information reported by prime contractors enables Federal agencies to report annually to the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) concerning actions taken to implement and measure progress in carrying out the preference for biobased products required under section 9002 of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, codified at 7 U.S.C. 8102. B. Annual Reporting Burden A reassessment of 52.223–2 was preformed. Based on the comprehensive reassessment performed, this information collection resulted in an increase in the total burden hours from the previous information collection that was published in the Federal Register at 76 FR 81940 on December 29, 2011. Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) was searched to determine the number of unique DUNS numbers for the following selected Product Services Codes: A-Research and Development; FNatural Resources Management; JMaintenance, Repair, and Rebuilding of Equipment; M-Operation of Government-Owned Facility; S-Utilities and Housekeeping Services; TPhotographic, Mapping, Printing, and Publication Services; Y-Construction of Structures and Facilities; and ZMaintenance, Repair or Alteration of Real Property. The clause will apply to the majority of the contract actions in the selected PSCs. The increase is likely a result of increased awareness of the biobased requirements and use of the contract clause in service and construction contracts. Respondents: 64,123. Responses per Respondent: 5. Hours per Response: 5. Total Burden Hours: 1,603,075. C. Public Comments Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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.
