What costs would your institution incur if the Reserve Banks adopt ISO 20022 for the Fedwire Funds Service? If possible, please provide dollar estimates or ranges. 3. Would the benefits of adopting ISO 20022 for the Fedwire Funds Service outweigh any associated costs for your institution? VIII. Competitive Impact Analysis The Board conducts a competitive impact analysis when it considers a rule or policy change that may have a substantial effect on payment system participants. Specifically, the Board determines whether there would be a direct or material adverse effect on the ability of other service providers to compete with the Federal Reserve due to differing legal powers or due to the Federal Reserve’s dominant market position deriving from such legal differences.24 The Board does not believe that the proposal to adopt ISO 20022 for the Fedwire Funds Service would have an adverse impact on other service providers. As described above, the current, proprietary message format for the Fedwire Funds Service is interoperable with the proprietary message format for the CHIPS system. As further described above, the Reserve Banks have worked with TCH on plans to align ISO 20022 implementation for the Fedwire Funds Service and CHIPS where possible; the Reserve Banks and TCH have indicated that such coordination will benefit their common customers. If the Reserve Banks and TCH each adopt ISO 20022 for the Fedwire Funds Service and CHIPS, respectively, the message formats for the two systems will remain interoperable. By order of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, June 28, 2018. Michele Taylor Fennell, Assistant Secretary of the Board. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 BILLING CODE P The Federal Reserve in the Payments System (issued 1984; revised 1990), Federal Reserve Regulatory Service 9–1558, http:// www.federalreserve.gov/paymentsystems/pfs_ frpaysys.htm.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    Under Federal contracts requiring that equipment (e.g., pumps, 
fans, generators, chillers, etc.) be installed in a project, the 
Government must determine that the equipment meets the contract 
requirements. Therefore, the contractor must submit sufficient data on 
the particular equipment to allow the Government to analyze the item.
    The Government uses the submitted data to determine whether or not 
the equipment meets the contract requirements in the categories of 
performance, construction, and durability. This data is placed in the 
contract file and used during the inspection of the equipment when it 
arrives on the project and when it is made operable.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

    The information collection requirement at FAR clause 52.236-5 has 
decreased based on information from the FY 2017 FPDS database which 
shows a lower number of estimated respondents that are subject to the 
clause.
    Respondents: 1,377.
    Responses per Respondent: 2.0.
    Annual Responses: 2,754.
