Purpose In accordance with FAR 16.4, incentive contracts are normally used when a firm fixed-price contract is not appropriate and the required supplies or services can be acquired at lower costs, and sometimes with improved delivery or technical performance, by relating the amount of profit or fee payable under the contract to the contractor’s performance. The information required periodically from the contractor, such as cost of work already performed, estimated costs of further performance necessary to complete all work, total contract price for supplies or services accepted by the Government for which final prices have been established, and estimated costs allocable to supplies or services accepted by the Government and for which final prices have not been established, is needed to negotiate the final prices of incentive-related items and services. Contractors are required to submit the information in accordance with several incentive fee FAR clauses: FAR 52.216–16, Incentive Price Revision—Firm Target; FAR 52.216–17, Incentive Price Revision—Successive Targets; and FAR 52.216–10, Incentive Fee. The contracting officer evaluates the information received to determine the contractor’s performance in meeting the incentive target and the appropriate price revision, if any, for the items or services. B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 1,000. Responses per Respondent: 2. Annual Responses: 2,000. Hours per Response: 1.5. Total Burden Hours: 3,000. C.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    It is the Government's policy to try to resolve all contractual 
issues by mutual agreement at the contracting officer's level without 
litigation. Reasonable efforts should be made to resolve controversies 
prior to submission of a contractor's claim. The Contract Disputes Act 
of 1978 (41 U.S.C. 7103) requires that claims exceeding $100,000 must 
be accompanied by a certification that (1) the claim is made in good 
faith; (2) supporting data are accurate and complete; and (3) the 
amount requested accurately reflects the contract adjustment for which 
the contractor believes the Government is liable. The information, as 
required by FAR clause 52.233-1, Disputes, is used by a contracting 
officer to decide or resolve the claim. Contractors may appeal the 
contracting officer's decision by submitting written appeals to the 
appropriate officials.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

    Respondents: 4,500.
    Responses per Respondent: 3.
    Annual Responses: 13,500.
    Hours per Response: 1.
    Total Burden Hours: 13,500.

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.
    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 
Control No. 9000-0035, Claims and Appeals, in all correspondence.
