The Department of Defense (DoD), the General Services Administration (GSA), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) are combining OMB Control Nos. for the Federal Acquisition Regulation (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 of OMB Control No. 9000-0061, and combines it with the previously approved information collections under OMB Control Nos. 9000-0053, 9000-0054, 9000-0055, 9000-0056, and 9000-0057 with the new title “Federal Acquisition Regulation Part 47: Transportation Requirements.” Upon approval of this consolidated information collection, OMB Control Nos. 9000-0053, 9000-0054, 9000-0055, 9000-0056, and 9000-0057 will be discontinued. The burden requirements previously approved under the discontinued numbers will be covered under OMB Control No. 9000-0061. This clearance covers the information that offerors and contractors must submit to comply with the following FAR part 47 requirements: ● FAR 52.247-2, Permits, Authorities, or Franchises. ● FAR 52.247-6, Financial Statement. ● FAR 52.247-48, F.o.b. Destination—Evidence of Shipment. ● FAR 52.247-52, Clearance and Documentation Requirements. ● FAR 52.247-53, Freight Classification Description. ● FAR 52.247-57, Transportation Transit Privilege Credits. ● FAR 52.247-60, Guaranteed Shipping Characteristics. ● FAR 52.247-63, Preference for U.S.-Flag Air Carriers. ● FAR 52.247-64, Preference for Privately Owned U.S.-Flag Commercial Vessels. ● FAR 52.247-67, Submission of Transportation Documents for Audit. ● FAR 52.247-68, Report of Shipment (REPSHIP).

Miscellaneous Actions
Cutting Redundancy
There are no program changes or adjustments reported; however, the following adjustments have been made to the public and Government burden estimates based on the following: ● This supporting statement now covers 28 solicitation provisions and contract clauses in FAR part 47, based on the consolidation of OMB control Nos. 9000-0053, 9000-0054, 9000-0055, 9000-0056, and 9000-0057 under OMB control number 9000-0061 and the inclusion of estimates for the clauses at FAR 52.247-60 and 52.247-67. ● An estimate of the recordkeeping burden associated with FAR clause 52.247-48 and 52.247-67 are provided separate from the reporting requirements, since both clauses require the contractor to maintain records of certain transportation documents for potential Government audit/review. ● The reporting burden estimates for the clauses at FAR 52.247-6, 52.247-48, 52.247-52, 52.247-57, and 52.247-64 have been estimated separately from the burden associated with the standard delivery terms for fixed-price supply contracts prescribed in FAR 47.303. ● FAR clauses 52.247-39 and 52.247-40 are removed from the list of standard delivery terms under FAR 47.303. Neither of these clauses impose an information collection requirement on contractors. ● The estimated cost per hour is based on use of the current (calendar year 2021) OPM GS wage rates for the rest of the United States. ● Where FPDS award data was available, the estimate was based on an average of the data over the three most recent and complete fiscal years (FY18 through FY20).
