SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose The Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) provides that an agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and no person is required to respond to, nor be subject to, a penalty for failure to comply with a collection of information, unless that collection has obtained Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. GSA requested and OMB authorized emergency processing of an information collection, as OMB Control Number 3090–0322, for the provision at FAR 52.204–24, Representation Regarding Certain Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services and the clause at FAR 52.204–25, Prohibition on Contracting for Certain Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services or Equipment, as used under lease acquisitions. GSA has determined the following conditions have been met: a. The collection of information is needed prior to the expiration of time periods normally associated with a routine submission for review under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, because the prohibitions in Section 889 of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 (Pub. L. 115–232) went into effect on August 13, 2020. b. The collection of information is essential to GSA’s mission to ensure GSA complies with Section 889 in order to protect the Government supply chain from risks posed by covered telecommunications equipment or services. c. GSA cannot comply with the normal clearance procedures because E:\FR\FM\30SEN1.SGM 30SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 190 / Wednesday, September 30, 2020 / Notices public harm is reasonably likely to result if current clearance procedures are followed. This requirement supports implementation of Section 889 of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 (Pub. L. 115–232) under lease acquisitions. This section prohibits agencies from procuring, obtaining, extending or renewing a contract with contractors that will provide or use covered telecommunication equipment or services as a substantial or essential component of any system, or as a critical technology as part of any system on or after August 13, 2020 unless an exception applies. This requirement is implemented in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) through the provision at FAR 52.204–24, Representation Regarding Certain Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services or Equipment and the clause at FAR 52.204–25, Prohibition on Contracting for Certain Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services or Equipment. GSA’s Class Deviation CD–2020–15 extends these requirements to lease acquisitions. This clearance covers the following requirements: • FAR 52.204–24 requires an offer or to represent whether they will provide or whether they will use any covered telecommunications equipment or services and if so, describe in more detail the use of the covered telecommunications equipment or services; and • FAR 52.204–25 requires contractors to report covered telecommunications equipment, systems and services identified during performance of a contract. GSA requested approval of this information collection in order to implement the law. The information will be used by agency personnel to identify and remove prohibited equipment, systems, or services from Government use. Under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES B.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    The Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) 
provides that an agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a 
collection of information, and no person is required to respond to, nor 
be subject to, a penalty for failure to comply with a collection of 
information, unless that collection has obtained Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) approval and displays a currently valid OMB Control 
Number.
    GSA requested and OMB authorized emergency processing of an 
information collection, as OMB Control Number 3090-0322, for the 
provision at FAR 52.204-24, Representation Regarding Certain 
Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services and the clause at 
FAR 52.204-25, Prohibition on Contracting for Certain 
Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services or Equipment, as 
used under lease acquisitions. GSA has determined the following 
conditions have been met:
    a. The collection of information is needed prior to the expiration 
of time periods normally associated with a routine submission for 
review under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, because the 
prohibitions in Section 889 of the John S. McCain National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 (Pub. L. 115-232) went into 
effect on August 13, 2020.
    b. The collection of information is essential to GSA's mission to 
ensure GSA complies with Section 889 in order to protect the Government 
supply chain from risks posed by covered telecommunications equipment 
or services.
    c. GSA cannot comply with the normal clearance procedures because

[[Page 61749]]

public harm is reasonably likely to result if current clearance 
procedures are followed.
    This requirement supports implementation of Section 889 of the John 
S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 (Pub. 
L. 115-232) under lease acquisitions. This section prohibits agencies 
from procuring, obtaining, extending or renewing a contract with 
contractors that will provide or use covered telecommunication 
equipment or services as a substantial or essential component of any 
system, or as a critical technology as part of any system on or after 
August 13, 2020 unless an exception applies.
    This requirement is implemented in the Federal Acquisition 
Regulation (FAR) through the provision at FAR 52.204-24, Representation 
Regarding Certain Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services or 
Equipment and the clause at FAR 52.204-25, Prohibition on Contracting 
for Certain Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services or 
Equipment. GSA's Class Deviation CD-2020-15 extends these requirements 
to lease acquisitions.
    This clearance covers the following requirements:
     FAR 52.204-24 requires an offer or to represent whether 
they will provide or whether they will use any covered 
telecommunications equipment or services and if so, describe in more 
detail the use of the covered telecommunications equipment or services; 
and
     FAR 52.204-25 requires contractors to report covered 
telecommunications equipment, systems and services identified during 
performance of a contract.
    GSA requested approval of this information collection in order to 
implement the law. The information will be used by agency personnel to 
identify and remove prohibited equipment, systems, or services from 
Government use. Under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, 
Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or 
sponsor.
