This information collection supports implementation of the Secure Federal LEASEs Act (Pub. L. 116-276) to reduce security risks in high-security leased space. Section 3 of the bill requires agencies, before entering into a lease agreement for high-security leased space, to require the contractor to identify the immediate or highest-level owner of the space, including any financing entity, and disclose whether that owner is a foreign person or entity, including the country associated with the ownership entity. The contractor shall (1) provide such identification and disclosure when first submitting a proposal in response to a solicitation; and (2) update such information annually. This information is partially implemented in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) through the provisions at FAR 52.204-3, Taxpayer Identification, FAR 52.204-7, System for Award Management, FAR 52.204-17, Ownership and Control of Offeror, and the clause at FAR 52.204-13, System for Award Management Maintenance. OMB Control Numbers 9000-0097 and 9000-0185 covers the FAR provisions and clause. However, as the FAR does not account for foreign financing as required by the Act, GSA issued an interim rule for lease acquisitions of high-security space to identify the required information through GSAR 552.270-33.
GSA requests emergency OMB approval for a new ICR for ownership representation for high-security leases, to be effective immediately for the maximum period of 6 months. This collection of information is needed prior to the expiration of time periods established to ensure proper implementation of the Secure Federal LEASEs Act, specifically with regard to the immediate and highest-level owner for high-security leased space. This collection is essential to the successful implementation of this national security effort and is an essential mission requirement for GSA.
