In addition, information identifying persons who are debarred, suspended or disqualified by RMA is provided to the General Services Administration to be included in the Excluded Parties List System, an electronic system maintained by the General Services Administration that provides current information about persons who are excluded or disqualified from covered transactions. Estimate of burden: Reporting burden for the collection and transmission of information by AIPs, including reporting for late payment of debt for AIP reinstatement and Administrator reinstatement, is estimated to average 19 minutes per response.
