Title: Guidelines for Designating Biobased Products for Federal Procurement. OMB Control Number: 0570–0073. Expiration Date of Approval: April 30, 2021. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: The USDA BioPreferred Program provides that qualifying biobased products that fall under product categories (generic groups of biobased products) that have been designated for preferred procurement by rule making are required to be purchased by Federal agencies in lieu of their fossil energy-based counterparts, with certain limited exceptions. Further, USDA is required by section 9002 of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, as amended by the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 and the Agricultural Act of 2014, and the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, to provide certain information on qualified biobased products to Federal agencies. To meet these statutory requirements, USDA will gather that information from manufacturers and vendors of biobased products. The information sought by USDA can be transmitted electronically using the website http://www.biopreferred.gov. If for any reason the requested information cannot be electronically transmitted, USDA will provide technical assistance to support the transmission of information to USDA. The information collected will enable USDA to meet statutory information requirements that will then permit USDA to designate product categories for preferred procurement under the BioPreferred Program. Once product categories are designated, manufacturers and vendors of qualifying biobased products that fall under these designated product categories will benefit from preferred procurement by Federal agencies. This collection was previously approved under 0503–0011, and on February 4, 2021, was transferred to Rural VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:07 Feb 18, 2021 Jkt 253001 Development and assigned OMB Control No. 0570–0073. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 40 hours per response. Respondents: Manufacturers and vendors of biobased products. Participation is entirely voluntary. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 220. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: One per manufacturer or vendor. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 8,800 hours, one time only. Manufacturers and vendors are only asked to respond once for each stand-alone product or product family. Therefore, there is no ongoing annual paperwork burden on respondents unless they wish to add additional stand-alone products or product families. Furthermore, their participation in the BioPreferred Program is entirely voluntary. Copies of this information collection can be obtained from Kimble Brown, Innovation Center—Regulations Management Division, at (202) 720– 6780, Email: kimble.brown@ wdc.usda.gov. All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.
