Annual Burden Respondents: 5,166. Responses per Respondent: 1. Total Annual Responses: 5,166. Hours per Response: 6. Total Burden Hours: 30,996. D. Public Comment A 60 day notice was published in the Federal Register at 79 FR 33164, on June 10, 2014, as part of a proposed rule under FAR Case 2013–002. Fourteen responses on the proposed rule were received, of which 4 respondents provided comments on the estimates in the information collection requirement, as addressed in the preamble of the Federal Register notice that published the proposed rule. The estimate of the burden changed due to public comment. Several respondents stated that the burden is currently underestimated. According to one respondent, the estimate of 474,000 reports underestimates the potential burden of the expanded reporting requirements because it failed to account for the growth in GIDEP reporting entities and relies on the number of companies currently participating in GIDEP. Various respondents commented that 3 hours per report was substantially underestimated. One respondent noted that any incident must be identified, investigated, and reported.

Another respondent noted that a single report can take up to 100 hours to complete, including significant legal review. Another respondent commented that the ‘‘very low estimate’’ seems to ignore the significant time and costs associated with training, implementation, and the risks of liability. DoD, GSA, and NASA have completely revised the estimated number of reports per year because the rule has been significantly de-scoped and data was also reviewed regarding the current number or participating contractors and the current number of reports submitted, resulting in an estimate of 51,657 participating contractors submitting 5,166 reports per year. Industry already has all the information necessary to prepare a GIDEP report, based on existing quality assurance systems and procedures. However, in response to the industry comments, DoD, GSA, and NASA have reconsidered the number of estimated hours to prepare, review, and submit the report at an average of 6 hours per report.
