SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: A. Purpose A request for public comments was published in the Federal Register at 81 FR 62434 on September 9, 2016, as part of a proposed rule under GSAR Case 2015–G503. No comments were received on the information collection. B. Annual Reporting Burden The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) does apply because the final rule contains six clauses and provisions with information collection requirements. However, five of these PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 clauses and provisions do not impose additional information collection requirements to the paperwork burden previously approved under existing OMB Control Numbers. Only one of the six involves information collection requirements that have not previously been approved by OMB. The new clause at GSAR 552.236–72 Submittals involves an existing information collection requirement that has never been previously approved by OMB. The information collected is used by PBS to evaluate a contractor’s proposals, negotiate contract modifications, evaluate a contractor’s progress, and review payment requests during contract administration. The clause was previously GSAR 552.236– 78 Shop Drawings, Coordination Drawings, and Schedules. The clause is simplified, including removing the requirement for a specific number of prints and copies of various submittals. This simplification will ease the compliance burden for the contractor during contract administration from the current state. Public reporting burden for GSAR 552.236–72 Submittals is estimated to average 8 hours per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. The annual reporting burden is estimated as follows: Respondents: 3,758. Responses per respondent: 1. Total annual responses: 3,758. Preparation hours per response: 8. Total response burden hours: 30,064. 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. Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the information collection documents from the General Services Administration, Regulatory Secretariat Division (MVCB), 1800 F Street NW, Washington, DC 20405, telephone 202–501–4755.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: GSA is required by statute to set the 
mileage reimbursement rate for privately owned automobiles (POA) as the 
single standard mileage rate established by the Internal Revenue 
Service (IRS). In addition, the IRS mileage rate for medical or moving 
purposes is used to determine the POA rate when a Government-furnished 
automobile is authorized. This IRS rate also establishes the standard 
mileage rate for moving purposes as it pertains to official relocation. 
Finally, GSA's annual privately owned airplane and motorcycle mileage 
reimbursement rate reviews have resulted in new CY 2019 rates. GSA 
conducts independent airplane and motorcycle studies that evaluate 
various factors, such as the cost of fuel, the depreciation of the 
original vehicle costs, maintenance and insurance, and/or by applying 
consumer price index data. FTR Bulletin 19-03 establishes and announces 
the new CY 2019 POV mileage reimbursement rates for official temporary 
duty and relocation travel ($0.58 per mile for

Also posted on this site is the standard mileage rate for moving

72965 (November 29, 2010), FTR Amendment 2007-03, 72 FR 35187 (June 27, 
2007), and FTR Amendment 2007-06, 72 FR 70234 (December 11, 2007), 
ensures more timely updates regarding mileage reimbursement rates by 
GSA for federal employees who are on official travel or relocating. 
Notices published periodically in the Federal Register, such as this 
one, and the changes posted on the GSA website, now constitute the only 
notification to federal agencies of revisions to the POV mileage 
reimbursement rates and the standard mileage reimbursement rate for 
moving purposes.
