SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    Certain Federal contracts provide for progress payments to be made 
to the contractor during performance of the contract. Pursuant to FAR 
clause 52.232-16 ``Progress Payments,'' contractors are required to 
request progress payments on Standard Form 1443, ``Contractor's Request 
for Progress Payment,'' or an agency approved electronic equivalent. 
Additionally, contractors may be required to submit reports, 
certificates, financial statements, and other pertinent information, 
reasonably requested by the Contracting Officer. The contractual 
requirement for submission of reports, certificates, financial 
statements and other pertinent information is necessary for protection 
of the Government against financial loss through the making of progress 
payments.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

    Respondents: 25,161.
    Responses per Respondent: 32.
    Annual Responses: 805,152.
    Hours per Response: .42.
    Total Burden Hours: 338,164.
    Time required to read and prepare information is estimated at 25.2 
minutes (less than one-half hour) per completion. This downward change 
is attributable to productivity gains (based on data from Bureau of 
Labor Statistics, 1990-2013) realized through technology. The 
anticipated number of respondents has been reduced (from 27,000 to 
25,161), as well, and is proportional to the lower number of Federal 
contracts overall.

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.
    D. Obtaining Copies Of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of 
the information collection documents from the General Services 
Administration, Regulatory Secretariat Division (MVCB), 1800 F Street 
NW., Washington, DC 20405, telephone 202-501-4755. Please cite OMB
