FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas M. Burnum, E-Commerce Division, (202) 874–6430; or Thomas Kearns, Senior Counsel, Office of the Chief Counsel, (202) 874–7036. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: An agency that has acquired property or service from a business concern and has failed to pay for the complete delivery of property or service by the required payment date shall pay the business concern an interest penalty. 31 U.S.C. 3902(a). The Contract Disputes Act of 1978, Sec. 12, Public Law 95–563, 92 Stat. 2389, and the Prompt Payment Act, 31 U.S.C. 3902(a), provide for the calculation of interest due on claims at the rate established by the Secretary of the Treasury. The Secretary of the Treasury has the authority to specify the rate by which the interest shall be computed for interest payments under section 12 of the Contract Disputes Act of 1978 and under the Prompt Payment Act. Under the Prompt Payment Act, if an interest penalty is owed to a business concern, the penalty shall be paid regardless of whether the business concern requested payment of such penalty. 31 U.S.C. 3902(c)(1). Agencies must pay the interest penalty calculated with the interest rate, which is in effect at the time the agency accrues the obligation to pay a late payment interest penalty. 31 U.S.C. 3902(a). ‘‘The interest penalty shall be paid for the period beginning on the day after the required payment date and ending on the date on which payment is made.’’ 31 U.S.C. 3902(b). Therefore, notice is given that the Secretary of the Treasury has determined that the rate of interest applicable for the period beginning July 1, 2020, and ending on December 31, 2020, is 11⁄8 per centum per annum.

Background The Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, as amended (TRIA),1 established the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program (TRIP or Program).2 The Act establishes a temporary federal program of shared public and private compensation for insured commercial property and casualty losses resulting from an ‘‘act of terrorism,’’ as defined by TRIA. In order for the Program to make payments, the losses from an event must exceed certain thresholds and be in excess of participating insurer deductibles. Only ‘‘acts of terrorism’’ that have been certified as such by the Secretary (in consultation with the Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security) are subject to the compensation provisions of the Program. In the event Treasury does make payments under the Program, it may be required, through surcharges imposed upon all commercial policyholders, to recoup some or all of any amounts expended. Since the inception of the Program in 2002, Treasury has sought and obtained from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approvals for certain information collections that will be necessary if Treasury needs to process 1 15 U.S.C. 6701 note. Because the provisions of TRIA (as amended) appear in a note, instead of particular sections of the United States Code, the provisions of TRIA are identified by the sections of the law. 2 See 31 CFR part 50.
