Purpose Part 28 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) contains guidance related to insuring against damages under Federal contracts (e.g., bonds, bid guarantees, etc.). Part 52 contains the corresponding provisions and clauses. These collectively implement the statutory requirement for Federal contractors to report payment bonds under construction contracts subject to 40 U.S.C. chapter 31, subchapter III, Bonds. This information collection is mandated by Section 806 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 1992 and 1993 (Pub. L. 102–190), as amended by Section 2091 of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act of 1994 (Pub. L. 103–335). The clause at 52.228–12, Prospective Subcontractor Requests for Bonds, implements Section 806(a)(3) of Public Law 102–190, as amended, which states that, upon the request of a prospective subcontractor or supplier offering to furnish labor or material under a construction contract for which a payment bond has been furnished pursuant to 40 U.S.C. 31, the contractor shall promptly provide a copy of such payment bond to the requestor. Given that payment bonds, in conjunction with performance bonds, are used to secure the contractor’s obligations, thereby assuring that payments are made to subcontractors and vendors under the contract, the requester will use information on PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 payment bonds to determine whether to engage in business with that prime contractor. B. Annual Reporting Burden Number of Respondents: 4,444. Responses per Respondent: 2.5. Total Annual Responses: 11,110. Hours per Response: .34. Total Burden Hours: 3,777. Frequency: On occasion. Affected Public: Construction prime contractors. 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.
