Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
The Defense Acquisition Regulations System has submitted to OMB for clearance, the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35).
The information generated by the progress payment submission requirements of DFARS part 232 is used by contracting officers to maintain an audit trail and permit verification of calculations. The Government also uses this information to determine how much to disburse to the contractor. Absent this information, the Government would be unable to pay the FMS portion of the progress payment request, thereby breaching its contractual duties, with subsequent damages payable to the contractor; the Disbursing Officer would commit a statutory violation in wrongfully disbursing U.S. funds contrary to the Congressional instructions for payments for FMS work; or the U.S. Government would violate its fiduciary duty to the foreign country whose funds are improperly disbursed for some other country's purchases.
Written comments and recommendations on the proposed information collection should be sent to Ms. Seehra at the Office of Management and Budget, Desk Officer for DoD, Room 10236, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503.
You may also submit comments, identified by docket number and title, by the following method:
