The number of contractor direct labor hours expended on the services performed during the previous Government fiscal year; and d. Data reported by subcontractors. The prime contractor shall require each first-tier subcontractor performing under the contract to provide annually— a. The subcontract number (including subcontractor name and if available, Unique Entity Identifier number; and b. The number of first-tier subcontractor direct-labor hours expended on the services performed during the previous Government fiscal year. In order to invoice the government for time-and-material/labor-hour (T&M/LH) and cost-reimbursement contracts, contractors already track labor hours expended, so the rule will cover T&M/ LH and cost-reimbursement contracts over the simplified acquisition threshold. Fixed price contracts are covered if the estimated total value is at $500,000 or more in FY 2016 and thereafter. For indefinite-delivery contracts, including but not limited to, indefinitedelivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts, Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) contracts, Governmentwide Acquisition contracts (GWACs), and multi-agency contracts, reporting requirements will be determined based on the expected dollar amount and type of the orders issued under the contracts. The burden has increased from the one in Federal Register Notice 78 FR 16268 dated March 14, 2013 due to more respondents being included in the overall total based on FY 2016 FPDS data. The threshold for Fixed-price contract reports are now covered if the estimated total value is at $500,000 or more. B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 111,172. Responses/respondent: 1. Total annual responses: 111,172. Preparation hours per response: 2. Total response burden hours: 222,344. C.
