Document Number: 06-4647
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-05-18
Agency: General Services Administration, Agencies and Commissions, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Department of Defense
Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Secretariat will be submitting to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request to review and approve an extension of a currently approved information collection requirement concerning place of performance. The clearance currently expires on October 31, 2006. Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the FAR, and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; and ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. When the On-Line Representation and Certifications Application (ORCA) becomes available, contractors will be able to complete the provision electronically; however, because the data being collected could change for a specific solicitation, contractor's will still be required to submit place of performance information on an exception basis; that is, whenever the place of performance for a specific solicitation is different from the place of performance shown in ORCA.

Document Number: 06-4493
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-05-18
Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Agencies and Commissions
This final rule amends 14 CFR 1260.20(e), ``Provisions,'' and the introductory paragraph to Exhibit E (Commercial Space Centers Program Grants/Cooperative Agreements Intellectual Property) to clarify that the ``Patent Rights'' and ``Rights in DataCSC Program'' special conditions in Exhibit E are to be used in all grants or cooperative agreements awarded to Commercial Space Centers (CSC) under the Space Development and Commercial Research (SDCR) Program instead of (rather than in addition to) the general conditions for Patent Rights (Sec. 1260.28) and Rights in Data (Sec. 1260.30). In addition, this final rule makes an administrative change to correct a cross-reference error in paragraph (e) of the general condition entitled, ``Patent Rights,'' Sec. 1260.28.
