Purpose Section 743(a) of Division C of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111–117) requires executive agencies covered by the Federal Activities Inventory Reform (FAIR) Act (Pub. L. 105–270), except DoD, to submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) annually an inventory of activities performed by service contractors. DoD is exempt from this reporting requirement because 10 U.S.C. 2462 and 10 U.S.C. 2330a(c) already require DoD to develop an annual service contract inventory. House Report 111–366 notes, in connection with section 743, that, ‘‘in the absence of complete and reliable information on the extent of their reliance on service contractors, Federal agencies are not well-equipped to determine whether they have the right balance of contractor and in-house resources needed to accomplish their missions. Therefore, this rule intends to PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 supplement agency annual service contract reporting requirements with the contractor provided service contract reporting information. The information is to be submitted pursuant to clauses 52.204–14 and 52.204–15. Certain prime service contractors will provide annually— a. The contract number, and, as applicable, order number; b. The total dollar amount invoiced for services performed during the previous Government fiscal year under the contract; c. 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.

Proposed Project [30Day–17–0739] Agency Forms Undergoing Paperwork Reduction Act Review The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has submitted the following information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The notice for the proposed information collection is CDC Oral Health Management Information System (OMB Control Number 0920–0739, expiration date 5/ 31/2017)—Reinstatement with Change. Division of Oral Health (DOH), National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The CDC works with state health departments to improve the oral health of the nation. Targeted efforts include building and/or maintaining an effective public health capacity for the implementation, evaluation, and dissemination of evidence-based practices in oral health disease prevention and advancement of oral health. Through a cooperative agreement program (Program Announcement DP13–1307), CDC has provided funding to 21 states over a 5year period. This cooperative agreement went into effect in September 2013 and builds upon previously funded collaborations between CDC and statebased oral health programs. Currently, CDC does not have approval to collect annual progress and activity reports from state-based oral health programs using the Chronic Disease Management Information System (CDMIS). The information collected in the Management Information System (MIS) improves CDC’s ability to disseminate information about successful public health approaches that are potentially replicable and adaptable for use in other states. CDC requests a reinstatement with change to continue collecting information for two additional years. The estimated burden decreased from 255 to 171 hours as programs no longer have to repeat the initial entry of administrative data after the first year. The estimated burden for system maintenance and annual reporting is three hours for Basic-level awardees. The estimated burden for system maintenance and annual reporting is nine hours for Enhanced-level awardees. State awardees submit reports to CDC annually; however, states may enter updates in the MIS at any time. CDC collects all information electronically and uses this information to monitor awardee activities and to provide any needed technical assistance or follow-up support. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 171. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN OF HOURS Number of respondents Type of respondents Form name Program Awardees Basic Level .....................

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    Section 743(a) of Division C of the Consolidated Appropriations 
Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117) requires executive agencies covered by the 
Federal Activities Inventory Reform (FAIR) Act (Pub. L. 105-270), 
except DoD, to submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
annually an inventory of activities performed by service contractors. 
DoD is exempt from this reporting requirement because 10 U.S.C. 2462 
and 10 U.S.C. 2330a(c) already require DoD to develop an annual service 
contract inventory.
    House Report 111-366 notes, in connection with section 743, that, 
``in the absence of complete and reliable information on the extent of 
their reliance on service contractors, Federal agencies are not well-
equipped to determine whether they have the right balance of contractor 
and in-house resources needed to accomplish their missions. Therefore, 
this rule intends to supplement agency annual service contract 
reporting requirements with the contractor provided service contract 
reporting information.
    The information is to be submitted pursuant to clauses 52.204-14 
and 52.204-15. Certain prime service contractors will provide 
annually--
    a. The contract number, and, as applicable, order number;
    b. The total dollar amount invoiced for services performed during 
the previous Government fiscal year under the contract;
    c. 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

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, 
indefinite-delivery 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.

    Respondents: 111,172.

    Total annual Responses: 111,172.
    Preparation hours per response: 2.
    Total response burden hours: 222,344.

C. Public Comments

    Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this

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.
