Purpose This information collection requirement, OMB Control No. 9000– PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 0018, currently titled ‘‘Certification of Independent Price Determination and Parent Company and Identifying Data,’’ is proposed to be retitled ‘‘Certification of Independent Price Determination, Contractor Code of Business Ethics and Compliance, and Preventing Personal Conflicts of Interest,’’ due to consolidation with two additional currently approved information collection requirements: OMB Control No. 9000–0164, Contractor Business Ethics Compliance Program and Disclosure Requirements; and OMB Control No. 9000–0183, Preventing Personal Conflicts of Interest for Contractor Employees Performing Acquisition Functions. 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. This information collection requirement pertains to information that an offeror contractor must submit in response to the requirements of the following provisions and clauses in FAR 52.203: 1. Certification of Independent Price Determination (FAR 52.203–2). This clause requires the offeror to certify that the prices in the offer have been arrived at independently. Agencies are required to report under 41 U.S.C. 3101 (formerly 41 U.S.C. 252(b)(i)) and 10 U.S.C. 2305(d) suspected violations of the antitrust laws (e.g., collusive bidding, identical bids, uniform estimating systems, etc.) to the Attorney General. As a first step in assuring that Government contracts are not awarded to firms violating such antitrust laws, offerors on Government contracts must complete the certificate of independent price determination. An offer will not be considered for award where the certificate has been deleted or modified. Deletions or modifications of the certificate and suspected false certificates are reported to the Attorney General (see FAR 3.103–2 Evaluating the Certification). The information collection is required each time an offeror responds to a solicitation for firm-fixed price contract or fixed-price economic price adjustment contract unless the acquisition is: (1) Made under the simplified acquisition threshold; (2) at the request for technical proposals under two-step sealed bidding procedures; or (3) for utility services for which rates are set by law or regulation. The FAR rule requires a Certificate of Independent Price Determination so that contractors certify that the prices in their offer have been arrived at independently, have not been or will E:\FR\FM\19JAN1.SGM 19JAN1
