SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title and OMB Number: DFARS Defense Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Part 211, Describing Agency Needs, and related clauses at DFARS 252.211; OMB Control Number 0704–0398. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Number of Respondents: 641. Responses per Respondent: 102 (approximately). Annual Responses: 65,573. Average Burden per Response: 0.27 hours (approximately). Annual Burden Hours: 17,836. Needs and Uses: (a) DFARS provision 252.211–7004, Alternate Preservation, Packaging, and Packing, allows potential offerors to propose alternatives to military preservation, packaging, or packing specifications. Specifically, the offeror may include in its offer two unit prices in the format specified in the clause: one price based on use of the military specifications, and another price based on commercial or industry preservation, packaging, or packing of equal or better protection that the military. DoD uses the information to evaluate and award contracts using commercial or industrial preservation, packaging, or packing if the offeror chooses to propose such alternates. (b) DFARS provision 252.211–7005, Substitutions for Military or Federal Specifications and Standards, permits offerors to propose Single Process Initiative (SPI) processes as alternatives to military or Federal specifications and standards cited in DoD solicitations for previously developed items. DoD uses the information to verify Government acceptance of an SPI process as a valid replacement for a military or Federal specification or standard. (c) DFARS clause 252.211–7007, Reporting of Government-Furnished asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:02 Mar 24, 2017 Jkt 241001 Property, requires contractors to report to the DoD Item Unique Identification (IUID) Registry all serially-managed Government-furnished property (GFP), as well as contractor receipt of nonserially managed items.
