Summary of Information Collection

    DoD uses the following DFARS provisions and clauses in 
solicitations and contracts to require offerors and contractors to 
identify and mark data or software requiring protection from 
unauthorized use, release, or disclosure in accordance with 10 U.S.C. 
2320:
    252.227-7013, Rights in Technical Data--Noncommercial Items.
    252.227-7014, Rights in Noncommercial Computer Software and 
Noncommercial Computer Software Documentation.
    252.227-7017, Identification and Assertion of Use, Release, or 
Disclosure Restrictions.
    252.227-7018, Rights in Noncommercial Technical Data and Computer 
Software--Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program.
    In accordance with 10 U.S.C. 2320(a)(2)(D), DoD may disclose 
limited rights data to persons outside the Government, or allow those 
persons to use data with use, release, or disclosure restrictions, if 
the recipient agrees not to further release, disclose, or use the data. 
Therefore, the clause at DFARS 252.227-7013, Rights in Technical Data--
Noncommercial Items, requires the contractor to identify and mark data 
or software that it provides with limited rights.
    In accordance with 10 U.S.C. 2321(b), contractors and 
subcontractors at any tier must be prepared to furnish written 
justification for any asserted restriction on the Government's rights 
to use or release data. The following DFARS clauses require contractors 
and subcontractors to maintain adequate records and procedures to 
justify any asserted restrictions:
    252.227-7019, Validation of Asserted Restrictions--Computer 
Software.
    252.227-7037, Validation of Restrictive Markings on Technical Data.
    In accordance with 10 U.S.C. 2320, DoD must protect the rights of 
contractors that have developed items, components, or processes 
exclusively at private expense. Therefore, the clause at DFARS 252.227-
7025, Limitations on the Use or Disclosure of Government-Furnished 
Information Marked with Restrictive Legends, requires a contractor or 
subcontractor to submit a use and non-disclosure agreement when it 
obtains data from the Government to which the Government has less than 
unlimited rights. In addition, DFARS 227.7103-7, Use and non-disclosure 
agreement, requires intended recipients of technical data or computer 
software delivered to the Government with restrictions on use, 
modification, reproduction, release, performance, display, or 
disclosure, to sign the use and non-disclosure agreement at 227.7103-
7(c) prior to release or disclosure of the data, unless the recipient 
is a Government contractor that requires access to a third parties data 
or software for the performance of a Government contract that contains 
the clause at 252.227-7025, Limitations on Use or Disclosure of 
Government-Furnished Information Marked with Restrictive Legends. 
According to 10 U.S.C. 2320(a)(2)(D), DoD may disclose limited rights 
data to persons outside the Government, or allow those persons to use 
limited rights data, if the recipient agrees not to further use, 
release, or disclose the data.
    The provision at DFARS 252.227-7028, Technical Data or Computer 
Software Previously Delivered to the Government, requires an offeror to 
identify any technical data or computer software that it previously 
delivered, or will deliver, under any Government contract. DoD needs 
this information to avoid paying for rights in technical data or 
computer software that the Government already owns.
