SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    FAR 43.205 allows a contracting officer, whenever the estimated 
cost of a change or series of related changes under a contract exceeds 
$100,000, to assert the right in the clause at FAR 52.243-6, Change 
Order Accounting, to require the contractor to maintain separate 
accounts for each change or series of related changes. Each account 
shall record all incurred segregable, direct costs (less allocable 
credits) of work, changed and unchanged, allocable to the change. These 
accounts are to be maintained until the parties agree to an equitable 
adjustment for the changes or until the matter is conclusively disposed 
of under the Disputes clause. This requirement is necessary in order to 
be able to account properly for costs associated with changes in supply 
and research and development contracts that are technically complex and 
incur numerous changes.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

    Respondents: 8,850.
    Responses per Respondent: 12.
    Annual Responses: 106,200.
    Hours per Response: 1.
    Total Burden Hours: 106,200.

C. Public Comments

    Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
functions of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (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
