SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    DoD, GSA, and NASA are issuing a final rule amending the Federal 
Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to require additional actions by 
contractors to assist contracting officers in ensuring compliance with 
the Governmentwide statutory prohibition on the use of appropriated (or 
otherwise made available) funds for contracts with any foreign 
incorporated entity that is an inverted domestic corporation or to any 
subsidiary of such entity.

B. Discussion and Analysis

    DoD, GSA, and NASA published a proposed rule at 79 FR 74558 on 
December 15, 2014, to revise the provisions of the FAR that address the 
continuing Governmentwide statutory prohibition (in effect since fiscal 
year 2008) on the use of appropriated (or otherwise made available) 
funds for contracts with any foreign incorporated entity that is an 
inverted domestic corporation (under section 835 of the Homeland 
Security Act of 2002, codified at 6 U.S.C. 395) or any subsidiary of 
such entity. The rule modifies the existing representation and adds a 
requirement to notify the contracting officer if the contractor becomes 
an inverted domestic corporation, or a subsidiary of an inverted 
domestic corporation, during performance of the contract.
    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.

C. Annual Reporting Burden

    The public reporting burden for this collection of information is 
estimated to average .2 hours per response, including the time for 
reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and 
maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the 
collection of information.
    The annual reporting burden estimated as follows:
    Respondents: 352,000.
    Responses per Respondent: 1.
    Total Annual Responses: 352,000.
    Hours per Response: .2.
    Total Burden Hours: 70,400.
    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 Number 9000-0190, Prohibition on Contracting with Inverted 
Domestic Corporations--Representation and Notification, in all 
correspondence.
