SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose The Privacy Act of 1974, (5 U.S.C. 552a) prescribes fair information practices for the collection, maintenance, use, and dissemination of personal information by Federal agencies. Consistent with the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, OMB Circular A–130, ‘‘Managing Information as a Strategic Resource,’’ and other OMB memoranda, this rule specifically addresses the recordkeeping and reporting associated with FAR clause 52.224–XX, ‘‘Privacy Training.’’ The clause is used in solicitations and contracts whenever contract performance requires the employees of the contractor (or the employees of subcontractors) to have access to personally identifiable information (PII), including access to a system of records on individuals or entails the design, development, maintenance, or the operation of a system of records on individuals. The recordkeeping effort involves maintenance of training completion documentation by contractors; the reporting covers submission of the training completion documentation to the contracting officer upon request. It is anticipated that the Government would request this documentation only rarely. B. Discussion and Analysis DoD, GSA, and NASA provided notification of the applicability of the Paperwork Reduction Act and requested approval for a new information collection requirement as part of FAR Case 2010–013, published at 76 FR 63896, on October 14, 2011. Two respondents commented on the annual burden estimate. Comment: The respondents stated that the annual burden estimate with respect to the public’s Paperwork Reduction Act reporting burden was understated. The respondents believed that (a) requiring contractors to conduct their own privacy training and (b) E:\FR\FM\08NON1.SGM 08NON1 78596 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 216 / Tuesday, November 8, 2016 / Notices requiring re-training every year created a greater burden on contractors. Response: In response to the concerns expressed by these respondents, it is noted that this information collection requirement does not address the burden associated with conducting the initial or subsequent annual privacy training. Rather, it focuses solely on the obligation of Federal contractors’ to maintain documentation showing that the required privacy training was completed by the employee and, upon request, provide completion documentation to the contracting officer. However, since the analysis used in the proposed rule did not encompass contracts involving the acquisition of commercial items, the methodology used to derive the estimated hourly and cost burden described in the proposed rule has been revised in the final rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    The Privacy Act of 1974, (5 U.S.C. 552a) prescribes fair 
information practices for the collection, maintenance, use, and 
dissemination of personal information by Federal agencies. Consistent 
with the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, OMB Circular A-130, 
``Managing Information as a Strategic Resource,'' and other OMB 
memoranda, this rule specifically addresses the recordkeeping and 
reporting associated with FAR clause 52.224-XX, ``Privacy Training.'' 
The clause is used in solicitations and contracts whenever contract 
performance requires the employees of the contractor (or the employees 
of subcontractors) to have access to personally identifiable 
information (PII), including access to a system of records on 
individuals or entails the design, development, maintenance, or the 
operation of a system of records on individuals. The recordkeeping 
effort involves maintenance of training completion documentation by 
contractors; the reporting covers submission of the training completion 
documentation to the contracting officer upon request. It is 
anticipated that the Government would request this documentation only 
rarely.

B. Discussion and Analysis

    DoD, GSA, and NASA provided notification of the applicability of 
the Paperwork Reduction Act and requested approval for a new 
information collection requirement as part of FAR Case 2010-013, 
published at 76 FR 63896, on October 14, 2011. Two respondents 
commented on the annual burden estimate.
    Comment: The respondents stated that the annual burden estimate 
with respect to the public's Paperwork Reduction Act reporting burden 
was understated. The respondents believed that (a) requiring 
contractors to conduct their own privacy training and (b)

[[Page 78596]]

requiring re-training every year created a greater burden on 
contractors.
    Response: In response to the concerns expressed by these 
respondents, it is noted that this information collection requirement 
does not address the burden associated with conducting the initial or 
subsequent annual privacy training. Rather, it focuses solely on the 
obligation of Federal contractors' to maintain documentation showing 
that the required privacy training was completed by the employee and, 
upon request, provide completion documentation to the contracting 
officer. However, since the analysis used in the proposed rule did not 
encompass contracts involving the acquisition of commercial items, the 
methodology used to derive the estimated hourly and cost burden 
described in the proposed rule has been revised in the final rule.

methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
