Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information 
collection request to the Office of Management of Budget (OMB) and 
solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) invites public 
comment about our intention to request the OMB's approval for renewal 
of an existing information collection that is summarized below. We are 
required to publish this notice in the Federal Register under the 
provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 
    Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted:
    1. The title of the information collection: 48 CFR 20, U.S. Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission Acquisition Regulation (NRCAR).
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0169.
    3. How often the collection is required: On occasion; one time.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: NRC contractors and 
potential contractors.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 2,473 respondents.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 20,095 (18,750 reporting plus 1,345 recordkeeping).
    7. Abstract: The mandatory requirements of the NRCAR implement and 
supplement the Government-wide Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), 
and ensure that the regulations governing the procurement of goods and 
services within the NRC satisfy the particular needs of the agency. 
Because of differing statutory authorities among Federal agencies, the 
FAR authorizes agencies to issue regulations to implement FAR policies 
and procedures internally to satisfy the specific need of the agency.
