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. This clause requires the contractor to prepare and submit to the contracting officer for approval three copies of a practicable schedule showing the order in which the contractor proposes to perform the work, and the dates on which the contractor contemplates starting and completing the several salient features of the work (including acquiring materials, plant, and equipment). The contracting officer uses this information to monitor progress under a Federal construction contract when other management approaches for ensuring adequate progress are not used. C.

Each year, about 13,500 households will be screened, with about 5,000 participants interviewed annually. Participation in the NSFG is completely voluntary and confidential. Interviews are expected to average 50 minutes for males and 75 minutes for females. The response rate during the 2011–2019 data collection period ranged from 64.5% to 74.0%, and the cumulative response rate for this eight-year fieldwork period was 67.7%. The NSFG program produces descriptive statistics which document factors associated with birth and pregnancy rates, including contraception, infertility, marriage, cohabitation, and sexual activity, in the US household population 15–49 years (15–44 prior to 2015), as well as behaviors that affect the risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STD). The survey also disseminates statistics on the medical care associated with contraception, infertility, pregnancy, and related health conditions.

0314, Exp. 06/30/2021)--Reinstatement--National Center for Health 
Statistics (NCHS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 
242k), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human 
Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on 
``family formation, growth, and dissolution,'' as well as 
``determinants of health'' and ``utilization of health care'' in the 
United States. This clearance request includes the data collection in 
2022-2024 for the continuous National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG).
    The NSFG was conducted periodically between 1973 and 2002, 
continuously in 2006-2010, and after a break of 15 months, continuously 
in 2011-2019, by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS/CDC). 
Each year, about 13,500 households will be screened, with about 5,000 
participants interviewed annually. Participation in the NSFG is 
completely voluntary and confidential. Interviews are expected to 
average 50 minutes for males and 75 minutes for females. The response 
rate during the 2011-2019 data collection period ranged from 64.5% to 
74.0%, and the cumulative response rate for this eight-year fieldwork 
period was 67.7%.
    The NSFG program produces descriptive statistics which document 
factors associated with birth and pregnancy rates, including 
contraception, infertility, marriage, cohabitation, and sexual 
activity, in the US household population 15-49 years (15-44 prior to 
2015), as well as behaviors that affect the risk of HIV and other 
sexually transmitted diseases (STD). The survey also disseminates 
statistics on the medical care associated with contraception, 
infertility, pregnancy, and related health conditions.
    NSFG data users include the DHHS programs that fund the survey, 
including CDC/NCHS and 11 others within the Department of Health and 
Human Services:

 Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and 
Human Development (NIH/NICHD)
 Office of Population Affairs (OPA)
 Children's Bureau in the Administration for Children and 
Families (ACF/CB)
 Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (ACF/CB)
 Office on Women's Health (OASH/OWH)

DASH)
 CDC's Division of Reproductive Health (CDC/NCCDPHP/DRH)
 CDC's Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (CDC/NCCDPHP/
DCPC)
 CDC's Division of Violence Prevention (CDC/NCIPC/DVP)

    The NSFG is also used by state and local governments (primarily for 
benchmarking to national data); private research and action 
organizations focused on men's and women's health, child well-being, 
and marriage and the family; academic researchers in the social and 
public health sciences; journalists, and many others.
    This submission requests approval to reinstate NSFG data collection 
for three years. The reinstatement request includes the conduction of 
several methodological studies designed to improve the efficiency and 
validity of NSFG data collection for the purposes described above. The 
total estimated annualized time burden to respondents is 6,119 hours. 
There is no cost to respondents other than their time.
