Download as PDF 28303 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 117 / Tuesday, June 18, 2019 / Notices expertise need to be consulted, tests need to be performed and reports to memorialize findings of the review need to be prepared and filed. 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.
