The information being collected is tied to the aforementioned GSAR clauses (see Supplement 1 for a copy of each of these regulations). These GSAR clauses apply to offerors submitting an offer in response to GSA’s FSS solicitation. These GSAR clauses request offerors to submit information, as applicable, as part of their offer. The following is the information requested per clause: ● GSAR clause 552.238-84, Discounts for Prompt Payment. This clause requests an offeror to identify in their offer any discounts for early payment. If no discount is being offered, an offeror may include a statement in their offer that no discounts are being offered. ● GSAR clause 552.238-87, Delivery Prices. This clause requests an offeror to identify in their offer whether or not prices submitted cover delivery f.o.b. destination in Alaska, Hawaii, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. If the prices submitted do not cover these areas, an offeror may include a statement in their offer indicating this. ● GSAR clause 552.238-95, Separate Charge for Performance Oriented Packaging (POP) . This clause requests an applicable offeror to identify any hazardous material item (i.e., SIN or Descriptive Name of Article) being offered and the separate charge that applies. If no hazardous material items and/or such separate charges are being offered, an offeror may include a statement in their offer that this clause does not apply. ● GSAR clause 552.238-96, Separate Charge for Delivery within Consignee’s Premises . This clause requests an applicable offeror to identify any separate charge(s) for shipping when the delivery is within the consignee’s premises (inclusive of items that are comparable in size and weight). If no such separate charges are being offered, an offeror may include a statement in their offer that this clause does not apply. ● GSAR clause 552.238-97, Parts and Service. This clause requests an offeror to include in their offer the names and addresses of all supply and service points maintained in the geographic area in which the offeror would perform under the GSA FSS contract (if awarded one). Additionally, requests an offeror to indicate whether or not a complete stock of repair parts for the items being offered is carried at that point, and whether or not mechanical service is available. If this clause does not apply (e.g., the offeror is proposing services not products), an offeror may include a statement in their offer that this clause does not apply. ● GSAR clause 552.238-99, Delivery Prices Overseas. This clause requests an offeror to identify the intended geographic area(s)/countries/zones which are covered by their offer. ● GSAR clause 552.238-111, Environmental Protection Agency Registration Requirement . This clause requests offerors to identify the manufacturer’s and/or distributor’s name and EPA Registration Number for each item offered that requires registration with the EPA. If no such items are being offered, an offeror may include a statement in their offer that this clause does not apply.

Changing Regulations
For Item 12, GSAR clauses 552.238-84, 552.238-87, 552.238-95, 552.238-96, 552.238-97, 552.238-99, and 552.238-111 an updated estimated # of respondents per year was used. The updated number was calculated by averaging the total number of MAS offers received for the following fiscal years: 2019, 2020, and 2021. The change in this number can be attributed to GSA using more recent data, the GSA MAS Consolidation effort, and the decision to adjust the basis of estimate. The basis of estimate was adjusted to use the number of offers received versus the number of GSA FSS contract holders. The decision to use the number of offers received was to accurately reflect the timeframe when the information is being collected for the purposes intended (i.e., review and evaluation of offers). In this case, the information is collected as part of an offer not after award of a contract. For Item 12, an updated estimated preparation hours per response was used for GSAR clauses 552.238-111 and 552.238-84. Previously, the estimated preparation hours per response were 30 minutes and 1 hour respectively. In review of the information collection requirements contained in both clauses it was determined that the burden estimates needed to be updated. Altogether, the estimated preparation hours per response for 552.238-111 was increased from 30 minutes to 1 hour due to the complexity of the request (i.e., identify the manufacturer’s and/or distributor’s name and EPA Registration Number for each item offered that requires registration with the EPA). The estimated preparation hours per response for 552.238-84 was decreased from 1 hour to 30 min due to the general simplicity of the request (i.e. Are prompt payment discounts being offered? Yes or no, If yes, what is/are the discount(s)). For Items 12 and 14, an updated estimated cost per hour (i.e., hourly rate) was used. This number is based on the OPM GS-12, Step 5 salary of $43.10 per hour (see OPM Salary Table 2022-GS, Effective January 2022), plus a fringe factor of 36.25% ($15.62) (see OMB Memo M-08-13 for use in public-private competition). The previous extension used OPM’s Salary Table from 2018, whereas this extension is using OPM’s Salary Table Effective January 2022.
