SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: Heart of Recovery—Military Caregiver Needs Assessment; OMB Control Number 0702–0143. Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary to support the formation of the United States Army Office of the Surgeon General Military Caregivers Program: Heart of Recovery. Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Annual Burden Hours: 2,500. Number of Respondents: 5,000. Responses per Respondent: 1. Annual Responses: 5,000. Average Burden per Response: 30 minutes. Frequency: On occasion. This needs assessment seeks to identify the type(s) of support provided by caregivers; determine the level of burden experience by providing caregiver support; identify the health status of the caregiver population; determine services needed to provide caregiver support; and assess the need for caregiver support training. Respondents are military and/or civilian caregivers who provide unpaid care and assistance for, or manage the care of, someone who is an active-duty military member, Army National Guard, Army Reserve, or veteran that has been diagnosed with a service connected illness, injury, or impairment for which they require outside support. Data will be collected initially through an electronic questionnaire, followed by individual interviews conducted either in-person or telephonically. ‘‘Outside support’’ may include help with tasks such as personal care, bathing, dressing, feeding, giving medicines or treatments, help with memory tasks for those identified with brain trauma, assistance in coping with symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), transportation to doctors’ appointments, or arranging for services. Caregivers are jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:49 Mar 17, 2021 Jkt 253001 not required to be domiciled with the patient receiving care to be eligible for this study. Care and assistance are considered unpaid if they provide care or assistance without the receipt (or expectation of) financial compensation. Compiling, analyzing, and understanding the responses of the various perspectives of patient care is necessary to set a baseline of care and identify core competencies, services, and support required for providers, patients and family members providing, accepting, or supporting injured Army members.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: DoD is publishing the updated annual list of product categories for which the Federal Prison Industries’ share of the DoD market is greater than five percent. DATES: April 1, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Greg Snyder, telephone 703–614–0719. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 19, 2009, a final rule was published in the Federal Register at 74 FR 59914, which amended the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) subpart 208.6 to implement section 827 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (Pub. L. 110–181). Section 827 changed DoD competition requirements for purchases from Federal Prison Industries, Inc. (FPI) by requiring DoD to publish an annual list of product categories for which FPI’s share of the DoD market was greater than five percent, based on the most recent fiscal year data available. Product categories on the current list, and the products within each identified product category, must be procured using competitive or fair opportunity procedures in accordance with DFARS 208.602–70. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14737 The Principal Director, Defense Pricing and Contracting (DPC), issued a memorandum dated March 2, 2021, that provided the current list of product categories for which FPI’s share of the DoD market is greater than five percent based on fiscal year 2020 data from the Federal Procurement Data System. The product categories to be competed effective April 1, 2021, are the following: • 7110 (Office Furniture) • 7125 (Cabinets, Lockers, Bins, and Shelving) • 7210 (Household Furnishings) • 8405 (Outerwear, Men’s) • 8415 (Clothing, Special Purpose) • 8420 (Underwear and Nightwear, Men’s) The DPC memorandum with the current list of product categories for which FPI has a significant market share is posted at: https://www.acq.osd.mil/ dpap/cpic/cp/specific_policy_ areas.html#federal_prison. The statute, as implemented, also requires DoD to— (1) Include FPI in the solicitation process for these items. A timely offer from FPI must be considered and award procedures must be followed in accordance with existing policy at Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 8.602(a)(4)(ii) through (v); (2) Continue to conduct acquisitions, in accordance with FAR subpart 8.6, for items from product categories for which FPI does not have a significant market share. FAR 8.602 requires agencies to conduct market research and make a written comparability determination, at the discretion of the contracting officer. Competitive (or fair opportunity) procedures are appropriate if the FPI product is not comparable in terms of price, quality, or time of delivery; and (3) Modify the published list if DoD subsequently determines that new data requires adding or omitting a product category from the list.

The solicitation of feedback will target areas such as: Timeliness, appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, efficiency of service delivery, and resolution of issues with service delivery. Responses will be assessed to plan and inform efforts to improve or maintain the quality of service offered to the public. If this information is not collected, vital feedback from customers and stakeholders on the Agency’s services will be unavailable. The Agency will only submit a collection for approval under this generic clearance if it meets the following conditions: • The collections are voluntary; • The collections are low-burden for respondents (based on considerations of total burden hours, total number of respondents, or burden-hours per E:\FR\FM\18MRN1.SGM 18MRN1
