SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    The FAR requires certain information to be provided by contractors 
which would enable the Government to make payments under the contract 
by electronic funds transfer (EFT). The information necessary to make 
the EFT transaction is specified in clause 52.232-33, Payment by 
Electronic Funds Transfer--System for Award Management, which the 
contractor is required to provide prior to award, and clause 52.232-34, 
Payment by Electronic Funds Transfer--Other than System for Award 
Management, which requires EFT information to be provided as specified 
by the agency to enable payment by EFT. This collection of information 
is mostly imposed on contractors upon award of each contract. Less 
frequent collection would not facilitate contract payment by EFT as the 
standard method of payment under Government contracts.
    DoD, GSA and NASA analyzed the FY 2016 data from the Federal 
Procurement Data System (FPDS) to develop the estimated burden hours 
for this information collection. The burden was adjusted to reflect 
that the information required by the clause at 52.232-33, Payment by 
Electronic Funds Transfer-- System for Award Management, is already 
covered by OMB Control Number 9000-0159, System for Award Management 
Registration (SAM).

B. Annual Reporting Burden

    Respondents: 3,761.
    Responses per Respondent: 1.
    Annual Responses: 3,761.
    Hours per Response: 0.5.
    Total Burden Hours: 1,881.

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, including whether the information will have 
practical utility; the accuracy of the estimate of the burden of the 
information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and 
clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the 
burden of the information collection on respondents, including the use 
of automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology.
    Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the 
information collection documents from the General Services 
Administration, Regulatory Secretariat Division (MVCB), 1800 F Street 
NW., Washington, DC 20405, telephone 202-501-4755. Please cite OMB 
Control No. 9000-0144, Payment by Electronic Funds Transfer, in all
