Purpose The General Services Administration will be requesting the Office of Management and Budget to extend information collection 3090–0007, concerning GSA Form 527, Contractor’s Qualifications and Financial Information. This form is used to determine the financial capability of prospective contractors as to whether they meet the financial responsibility standards in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation 9.103(a) and 9.104–1 and also the General Services Administration Acquisition Manual 509.105–1(a). B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 2,542. Responses per Respondent: 1.2. Total Responses: 3,050. Hours per Response: 1.5. Total Burden Hours: 4,575. The estimated annual burden has decreased since GSA’s 2014 submission from 5,292 to 4,575 burden hours to reflect the continued use of the widespread option for potential contractors to submit financial statements and balance sheets in lieu of completing the applicable fields on GSA Form 527. The alternate submission of financial statements and balance sheets significantly reduces the burden on prospective contractors, as these documents are generally readily available. The average estimated hours to complete a response remained at the optimal rate of 1.5 hours. C. Public Comments Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary 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.
