A. Purpose

    Under Federal contracts requiring that equipment (e.g., pumps, 
fans, generators, chillers, etc.) be installed in a project, the 
Government must determine that the equipment meets the contract 
requirements. Therefore, the contractor must submit sufficient data on 
the particular equipment to allow the Government to analyze the item.
    The Government uses the submitted data to determine whether or not 
the equipment meets the contract requirements in the categories of 
performance, construction, and durability. This data is placed in the 
contract file and used during the inspection of the equipment when it 
arrives on the project and when it is made operable.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

    Public reporting burden for this collection of information is 
estimated to average .25 hours per completion, including the time for 
reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and 
maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the 
collection of information.
    The annual reporting burden is estimated as follows: Respondents, 
3,160; responses per respondent, 1.5; total annual responses, 4,740; 
preparation hours per response, .25; and total response burden hours, 

    Dated: November 7, 1995.
Beverly Fayson,
FAR Secretariat.
