Purpose This information collection requirement, OMB Control No. 9000– 0007, currently titled ‘‘Summary Subcontract Report,’’ is proposed to be retitled ‘‘Subcontracting Plans,’’ due to consolidation with currently approved information collection requirement OMB Control No. 9000–0006, Subcontracting Plans/Individual Subcontract Report (SF 294) and ISRS, and 9000–0192, Utilization of Small Business Subcontractors. This clearance covers the information that offerors and contractors must submit to comply with the requirements in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.219–9, Small Business Subcontracting Plans, regarding subcontracting plans as follows: 1. Subcontracting plan. In accordance with Section 8(d) of the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 637(d)), any contractor receiving a contract for more than the simplified acquisition threshold must agree in the contract that small business, veteran-owned small business, servicedisabled veteran-owned small business, HUBZone small business, small disadvantaged business, and womenowned small business concerns will have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate in contract performance. Further, 15 U.S.C. 637(d) imposes the requirement that contractors receiving a contract that is expected to exceed, or a contract modification that causes a contract to exceed, $700,000 ($1.5 million for E:\FR\FM\15NON1.SGM 15NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 221 / Thursday, November 15, 2018 / Notices construction) and has subcontracting possibilities, shall submit an acceptable subcontracting plan that provides maximum practicable opportunities for small business, veteran-owned small business, service-disabled veteranowned small business, HUBZone small business, small disadvantaged business, and women-owned small business concerns. Specific elements required to be included in the plan are specified in section 8(d) of the Small Business Act and implemented in FAR subpart 19.7 and the clause at 52.219–9. 2. Summary Subcontract Report (SSR). In conjunction with the subcontracting plan requirements, contractors with subcontracting plans must submit an annual summary of subcontracts awarded as prime and subcontractors for each specific Federal Government agency.

Written explanation for not using a small business subcontractor as specified in the proposal or subcontracting plan. Section 1322 of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 (Jobs Act), Public Law 111–240, amends the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 637(d)(6)) to require as part of a subcontracting plan that a prime contractor make good faith effort to utilize a small business subcontractor during performance of a contract to the same degree the prime contractor relied on the small business in preparing and submitting its bid or proposal. If a prime contractor does not utilize a small business subcontractor as described above, the prime contractor is required to explain, in writing, to the contracting officer the reasons why it is unable to do so.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    This information collection requirement, OMB Control No. 9000-0007, 
currently titled ``Summary Subcontract Report,'' is proposed to be 
retitled ``Subcontracting Plans,'' due to consolidation with currently 
approved information collection requirement OMB Control No. 9000-0006, 
Subcontracting Plans/Individual Subcontract Report (SF 294) and ISRS, 
and 9000-0192, Utilization of Small Business Subcontractors.
    This clearance covers the information that offerors and contractors 
must submit to comply with the requirements in Federal Acquisition 
Regulation (FAR) 52.219-9, Small Business Subcontracting Plans, 
regarding subcontracting plans as follows:
    1. Subcontracting plan. In accordance with Section 8(d) of the 
Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 637(d)), any contractor receiving a 
contract for more than the simplified acquisition threshold must agree 
in the contract that small business, veteran-owned small business, 
service-disabled veteran-owned small business, HUBZone small business, 
small disadvantaged business, and women-owned small business concerns 
will have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate in 
contract performance. Further, 15 U.S.C. 637(d) imposes the requirement 
that contractors receiving a contract that is expected to exceed, or a 
contract modification that causes a contract to exceed, $700,000 ($1.5 
million for

construction) and has subcontracting possibilities, shall submit an 
acceptable subcontracting plan that provides maximum practicable 
opportunities for small business, veteran-owned small business, 
service-disabled veteran-owned small business, HUBZone small business, 
small disadvantaged business, and women-owned small business concerns. 
Specific elements required to be included in the plan are specified in 
section 8(d) of the Small Business Act and implemented in FAR subpart 
19.7 and the clause at 52.219-9.
    2. Summary Subcontract Report (SSR). In conjunction with the 
subcontracting plan requirements, contractors with subcontracting plans 
must submit an annual summary of subcontracts awarded as prime and 
subcontractors for each specific Federal Government agency. Contractors 
submit the information in a SSR through the Electronic Subcontracting 
Reporting System (eSRS). This is required for all contractors with 
subcontracting plans regardless of the type of plan (i.e., commercial 
or individual).
    3. Individual Subcontract Report (ISR). In conjunction with the 
subcontracting plan requirements, contractors with individual 
subcontracting plans must submit semi-annual reports of their small 
business subcontracting progress. Contractors submit the information 
through eSRS in an ISR, the electronic equivalent of the Standard Form 
(SF) 294, Subcontracting Report for Individual Contracts. Contracts 
that are not reported in the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) in 
accordance with FAR 4.606(c)(5) do not submit ISRs in eSRS; they will 
continue to use the SF 294 to submit the information to the agency.
    4. Written explanation for not using a small business subcontractor 
as specified in the proposal or subcontracting plan. Section 1322 of 
the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 (Jobs Act), Public Law 111-240, 
amends the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 637(d)(6)) to require as part 
of a subcontracting plan that a prime contractor make good faith effort 
to utilize a small business subcontractor during performance of a 
contract to the same degree the prime contractor relied on the small 
business in preparing and submitting its bid or proposal. If a prime 
contractor does not utilize a small business subcontractor as described 
above, the prime contractor is required to explain, in writing, to the 
contracting officer the reasons why it is unable to do so.
