NSF clause 1852.223–70, Safety and health measures and mishap reporting. Under this clause, NASA contractors are to immediately notify the contracting officer when a mishap (Type A, B, C, D or Close Call) occurs. The data the contractors provide to NASA includes incident location, date and time of incident, number of fatalities if known, number of hospitalized employees if known, type of injury if known, type of damage if known, contact person, contact person phone, number, and brief description of the incident. NASA estimates that the notification of a mishap will take a contractor approximately 4 hours, counting initial notifications, supervisory notifications, and contracting officer notifications. The chart below shows the number of mishaps, by category, reported by NASA contractors for calendar years 2013 and 2014. The Federal Procurement Data System data for fiscal year 2015 shows award of approximately 154 contract actions involved performance on a NASA facility.

For purposes of calculating burden, we estimate a given contractor may submit two mishaps notifications in a year and that this will take each notification approximately 4 hours to collect the information needed, review it, and provide it to the contracting officer. Generally, the contractor’s supervisory personnel would collect the information. It is likely the firm’s safety manager or equivalent position would review the information before submitting it to the contracting officer.

The manager/supervisor is estimated to be equivalent to the midpoint for a GS–14 at an hourly rate of $46.92. For both labor categories, the overhead/burden rate of 36.25%, based on the OMB-mandated burden rate for A–76 public-private competitions, is added (e.g., GS 12, Step 5 $33.39/hour × 1.3625 = $45.49 burdened hourly rate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This is a request for authorization to collect information under 
the NASA Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (NFS) Clause, 
1852.223-70, Safety and Health Measures and Mishap Reporting, formerly 
entitled ``Safety and Health.'' While the clause is proposed to be 
revised to eliminate some information collected requirements, two 
distinct information collection requirements will remain 1) 
notification of a Type A, B, C, or D Mishap, or a close call as defined 
in NASA Procedural Requirements (NPR) 8621.1 Mishap and Close Call 
Reporting, Investigating and Recordkeeping, and 2) quarterly reports 
specifying lost-time frequency rate, number of lost-time injuries, 
exposure, and accident/incident dollar losses.

    Title: Safety and Health Measures and Mishap Reporting.
    OMB Number: 2700-0160.
    Type of review: Renewal.
    NSF clause 1852.223-70, Safety and health measures and mishap 
reporting. Under this clause, NASA contractors are to immediately 
notify the contracting officer when a mishap (Type A, B, C, D or Close 
Call) occurs. The data the contractors provide to NASA includes 
incident location, date and time of incident, number of fatalities if 
known, number of hospitalized employees if known, type of injury if 
known, type of damage if known, contact person, contact person phone, 
number, and brief description of the incident.
    NASA estimates that the notification of a mishap will take a 
contractor approximately 4 hours, counting initial notifications, 
supervisory notifications, and contracting officer notifications. The 
chart below shows the number of mishaps, by category, reported by NASA 
contractors for calendar years 2013 and 2014. The Federal Procurement 
Data System data for fiscal year 2015 shows award of approximately 154 
contract actions involved performance on a NASA facility.

    The purpose of tracking mishaps is for oversight of safety measures 
of current contractors working on Federal facilities and data for 
future source selections. For purposes of calculating burden, we 
estimate a given contractor may submit two mishaps notifications in a 
year and that this will take each notification approximately 4 hours to 
collect the information needed, review it, and provide it to the 
contracting officer. Generally, the contractor's supervisory personnel 
would collect the information. It is likely the firm's safety manager 
or equivalent position would review the information before submitting 
it to the contracting officer.
    NASA estimates that it will take a contractor approximately 5 hours 
to prepare and deliver the quarterly report.

    For notifying the contracting officer of a mishap, it is estimated 
a company supervisor would collect the information, then the company 
Occupational Health and Safety Specialist would review the information 
before it is submitted to the Government.
    For calculating the quarterly reports, specifying lost-time 
frequency rate, number of lost-time injuries, exposure, and accident/
incident dollar losses, it is estimated to take approximately 5 hours. 
This includes an Occupational Health and Safety Specialist gathering 
the records, analyzing the data, and a company official reviewing the 
data before the report is submitted to the Government.

    Generally, two labor categories will be involved in the 
requirements of this information collection: Occupational Health and 
Safety Specialist and a company supervisor or manager. The Occupational 
Health and Safety Specialist is estimated to be equivalent to the mid-
point (step 5) of the General Schedule (GS) GS-12 with an hourly rate 
of $33.39 (from the 2015 OPM GS Salary Table). The manager/supervisor 
is estimated to be equivalent to the mid-point for a GS-14 at an hourly 
rate of $46.92. For both labor categories, the overhead/burden rate of 
36.25%, based on the OMB-mandated burden rate for A-76 public-private 
competitions, is added (e.g., GS 12, Step 5 $33.39/hour x 1.3625 = 
$45.49 burdened hourly rate. For a manager/supervisor at a rate of 
$46.92, the burdened hourly rate is $63.03.
    Estimated Summary of Annual Total Cost to the Public of Information 
Collection Reporting Burden:
    Number of respondents: 154.
    Responses per respondent: 6.
    Total annual responses: 924.
    Average number of hours per response: 4.67.
    Total hours: 4,312.
    Rate per hour (average): $54.
    Total annual cost to public: $232,848.
    It is estimated that approximately 154 respondents will provide a 
total of 308 notifications of Type A, B, C, or D Mishap, or Close Call 
notifications (approximately 2 notifications per respondent per year). 
Additionally, each of 154 respondents will submit one quarterly report 
four times a year. Thus, responses from respondents are estimated to 
include 2 mishap notifications and 4 quarterly reports for a total of 6 
responses annually per respondent. Based on these figures, the combine 
total number of responses per year for all respondents will be 308 
mishap reports and 616 quarterly reports for a total of 924 total 
responses for all respondents. It is estimated to take a respondent 
approximately 4 hours to gather the required information and notify the 
contracting officer of a Type A, B, C, or D Mishap or Close Call. It is 
estimated to take respondents approximately 5 hours to prepare and 
submit each quarterly report specifying lost- time frequency rate, 
number of lost-time injuries, exposure, and accident/incident dollar 
losses.

    The estimates assume that not all efforts, such as retrieving and 
retaining records, are attributed solely to this information 
collection; only those actions resulting from this rule that are not 
customary to normal business practices are attributed to this estimate.

IV. Request for Comments

    Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
NASA, including whether the information collected has practical 
utility; (2) the accuracy of NASA's estimate of the burden (including 
hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (3) ways to 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents, including automated collection techniques 
or the use of other forms of information technology.
    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized 
and included in the request for OMB approval of this information 
collection. They will also become a matter of public record.
