FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Cecelia L. Davis, Procurement Analyst, Acquisition Policy Division, at 202– 219–0202 or email cecelia.davis@ gsa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. 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 payment bonds to determine whether to PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 22.406 prescribes labor 
standards for federally financed and assisted construction contracts 
subject to the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts (DBRA), as well as labor 
standards for non-construction contracts subject to the Contract Work 
Hours and Safety Standards Act (CWHSSA).
    The recordkeeping requirements in this regulation, FAR 22.406, 
reflect the requirements cleared under OMB control numbers 1235-0023,

(records to be kept by employers under the Fair Labor Standards Act 
(FLSA)). The regulation at 29 CFR 516 reflects the basic recordkeeping 
and reporting requirements for the laws administered by the Department 
of Labor Wage and Hour Division.
    FAR 22.406-3, implements the recordkeeping and information 
collection requirements prescribed in 29 CFR 5.5(a)(1)(ii) cleared 
under OMB control number 1235-0023 (also prescribed at 48 CFR 22.406 
under OMB control number 9000-0089), by providing SF 1444, Request for 
Authorization of Additional Classification and Rate, for the contractor 
and the Government to enter the recordkeeping and information 
collection data required by 29 CFR 5.5(a)(1)(ii) prior to transmitting 
the data to the Department of Labor.
    This SF 1444 places no further burden on the contractor or the 
Government other than the information collection burdens already 
cleared by OMB for 29 CFR 5.

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.
