Need and Uses The Department of Defense, General Services Administration, and National Aeronautics and Space Administration are combining OMB Control Nos. for the FAR-by-FAR part. This consolidation is expected to improve industry’s ability to easily and efficiently identify burdens associated with a given FAR part. The review of the information collections by FAR part allows improved oversight to ensure there is no redundant or unaccounted for burden placed on industry. Lastly, combining information collections in a given FAR part is also expected to reduce the administrative burden associated with processing multiple information collections. This justification supports the revision and extension of OMB Control No. 9000–0062 and combines it with the previously approved information collections under OMB Control Nos. 9000–0058 and 9000–0060 with the new title ‘‘Certain Federal Acquisition E:\FR\FM\10JNN1.SGM 10JNN1 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 110 / Thursday, June 10, 2021 / Notices Regulation Part 36 Construction Contract Requirements.’’ Upon approval of this consolidated information collection, OMB Control Nos. 9000– 0058 and 9000–0060 will be discontinued. The burden requirements previously approved under the discontinued numbers will be covered under OMB Control No. 9000–0062. This clearance covers the information that contractors must submit to comply with the following FAR part 36 requirements: • FAR 52.236–5, Material and Workmanship. This clause requires the contractor to obtain contracting officer approval of the machinery, equipment, material, or articles to be incorporated into the work. The contractor’s request must include: The manufacturer’s name, the model number, and other information concerning the performance, capacity, nature, and rating of the machinery and mechanical and other equipment; and full information concerning the material or articles. When directed by the contracting officer, the contractor must submit sufficient information on and, in some cases, samples of the items requiring approval. The contracting officer uses this information to determine whether the machinery, equipment, material, or articles meet the standards of quality specified in the contract. A contracting officer may reject work if the contractor installs machinery, equipment, material, or articles in the work without obtaining the contracting officer’s approval. • FAR 52.236–13, Accident Prevention, Alternate I. This alternate to the basic clause requires the contractor to submit a written proposed plan to provide and maintain work environments and procedures that will safeguard the public and Government personnel, property, materials, supplies, and equipment exposed to contractor operations and activities; avoid interruptions of Government operations and delays in project completion dates; and control costs in the performance of this contract. The plan must include an analysis of the significant hazards to life, limb, and property inherent in contract work performance and a plan for controlling these hazards. The contracting officer and technical representatives analyze the Accident Prevention Plan to determine if the proposed plan will satisfy the safety requirements identified in the contract, to include certain provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Act and applicable standards issued by the Secretary of Labor at 29 CFR part 1926 and 29 CFR part 1910. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:15 Jun 09, 2021 Jkt 253001 • FAR 52.236–15, Schedules for Construction Contracts.

B. Need and Uses

    The Department of Defense, General Services Administration, and 
National Aeronautics and Space Administration are combining OMB Control 
Nos. for the FAR-by-FAR part. This consolidation is expected to improve 
industry's ability to easily and efficiently identify burdens 
associated with a given FAR part. The review of the information

redundant or unaccounted for burden placed on industry. Lastly, 
combining information collections in a given FAR part is also expected 
to reduce the administrative burden associated with processing multiple 
information collections.
    This justification supports the revision and extension of OMB 
Control No. 9000-0062 and combines it with the previously approved 
information collections under OMB Control Nos. 9000-0058 and 9000-0060

determine whether the machinery, equipment, material, or articles meet 
the standards of quality specified in the contract. A contracting 
officer may reject work if the contractor installs machinery, 
equipment, material, or articles in the work without obtaining the 
contracting officer's approval.
     FAR 52.236-13, Accident Prevention, Alternate I. This
