II. Background Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a request for renewal of an existing collection of information to OMB for review entitled, ‘‘US NRC Acquisition Regulation.’’ The NRC hereby informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The NRC published a Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period on this information collection on March 9, 2021 (86 FR 13589). 1. The title of the information collection: ‘‘US NRC Acquisition Regulation.’’ 2. OMB approval number: 3150–0169. 3. Type of submission: Extension. 4. The form number, if applicable: Not applicable. 5. How often the collection is required or requested: Monthly, once (at time of award), and on occasion (when changes occur). 6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Contractors and bidders. 7. The estimated number of annual responses: 6,258 (6,112 reporting responses + 146 recordkeepers). 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 535. 9. The estimated number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 17,412 (14,834 reporting + 2,578 recordkeeping). 10. Abstract: The mandatory requirements of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission Acquisition Regulation (NRCAR) implement and supplement the government-wide Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and E:\FR\FM\28JNN1.SGM 28JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 121 / Monday, June 28, 2021 / Notices ensure that the regulations governing the procurement of goods and services with the NRC satisfy the needs of the agency. This includes reports and recordkeeping requirements for certain contractors or offerors to submit a monthly progress report that summarizes work performed during the previous month, and/or retain records of equipment, payroll, inspection and quality control records, as applicable. Because of differing statutory authorities among Federal agencies, the FAR permits agencies to issue a regulation to implement FAR policies and procedures internally to satisfy the specific need of the agency. The NRCAR includes policies, procedures, solicitation provisions and contract clauses needed to ensure effective and efficient evaluation, negotiation, and administration of agency acquisitions. Certain reports, such as reports of contractor organizational conflicts of interest or changes in key personnel are collected from contractors on as needed basis as changes occur, whether at the time of award or throughout the life of the contract. Some reports are required to be submitted monthly such as the Financial Status report and Technical Progress Report. There are also some reports that bidders are required to submit upon request, such as responses to pre-award questions that demonstrate their ability to meet minimum standards set forth in FAR.

II. Background

    Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a request for renewal of 
an existing collection of information to OMB for review entitled, ``US 
NRC Acquisition Regulation.'' The NRC hereby informs potential 
respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a 
person is not required to respond to, a collection of information 
unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
    The NRC published a Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment 
period on this information collection on March 9, 2021 (86 FR 13589).
    1. The title of the information collection: ``US NRC Acquisition 
Regulation.''
    2. OMB approval number: 3150-0169.
    3. Type of submission: Extension.
    4. The form number, if applicable: Not applicable.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: Monthly, once 
(at time of award), and on occasion (when changes occur).
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Contractors and 
bidders.
    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 6,258 (6,112 reporting 
responses + 146 recordkeepers).
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 535.
    9. The estimated number of hours needed annually to comply with the 
information collection requirement or request: 17,412 (14,834 reporting 
+ 2,578 recordkeeping).
    10. Abstract: The mandatory requirements of the Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission Acquisition Regulation (NRCAR) implement and supplement the 
government-wide Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and

[[Page 34059]]

ensure that the regulations governing the procurement of goods and 
services with the NRC satisfy the needs of the agency. This includes 
reports and recordkeeping requirements for certain contractors or 
offerors to submit a monthly progress report that summarizes work 
performed during the previous month, and/or retain records of 
equipment, payroll, inspection and quality control records, as 
applicable. Because of differing statutory authorities among Federal 
agencies, the FAR permits agencies to issue a regulation to implement 
FAR policies and procedures internally to satisfy the specific need of 
the agency. The NRCAR includes policies, procedures, solicitation 
provisions and contract clauses needed to ensure effective and 
efficient evaluation, negotiation, and administration of agency 
acquisitions. Certain reports, such as reports of contractor 
organizational conflicts of interest or changes in key personnel are 
collected from contractors on as needed basis as changes occur, whether 
at the time of award or throughout the life of the contract. Some 
reports are required to be submitted monthly such as the Financial 
Status report and Technical Progress Report. There are also some 
reports that bidders are required to submit upon request, such as 
responses to pre-award questions that demonstrate their ability to meet 
minimum standards set forth in FAR.
