This clearance covers the information that contractors must submit to comply with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clause 52.225-26, Contractors Performing Private Security Functions Outside the United States. When contract performance is required outside the United States in an area of combat operations or significant military operations, this clause requires contractors to ensure employees performing private security functions under the contract comply with 32 CFR part 159, and any orders, directives, or instructions that are identified in the contract for: ● Registering, processing, accounting for, managing, overseeing, and keeping appropriate records of personnel performing private security functions; ● Requesting authorization of and accounting for weapons to be carried by or available to personnel performing private security functions; ● Registering and identifying armored vehicles, helicopters, and other military vehicles operated by employees performing private security functions; and ● Reporting incidents in which personnel performing private security functions: discharge a weapon; are attacked, killed, or injured; kill or injure a person or destroy property as a result of conduct by contractor personnel; have a weapon discharged against them or believe a weapon was so discharged; or employ active, non-lethal countermeasures in response to a perceived immediate threat.

  Total Request Previously Approved Change Due to New Statute Change Due to Agency Discretion Change Due to Adjustment in Estimate Change Due to Potential Violation of the PRA
Annual Number of Responses 140 80 0 60 0 0
Annual Time Burden (Hours) 70 40 0 30 0 0
Annual Cost Burden (Dollars) 4,130 2,200 0 1,930 0 0
Miscellaneous Actions
The increase in respondents from 16 to 28, total annual responses from 80 to 140, and the total estimated cost to the public and to the Government is due to: the use of current FPDS data, the use of calendar year 2022 OPM GS wage rates, and a change in the methodology used to calculate the estimate. It is unclear in the summary statement for previous information collection what criteria were used to search FPDS. As a result, this request establishes a reasonable methodology, as described in paragraphs 12 and 13, to estimate burden for this information collection.
