Regulation Part 36 Construction
Contract Requirements.’’ Upon approval
of this consolidated information
collection, OMB Control Nos. 9000–
0058 and 9000–0060 will be
discontinued. The burden requirements
previously approved under the
discontinued numbers will be covered
under OMB Control No. 9000–0062.
This clearance covers the information
that contractors must submit to comply
with the following FAR part 36
requirements:
FAR 52.236–5, Material and
Workmanship. This clause requires the
contractor to obtain contracting officer
approval of the machinery, equipment,
material, or articles to be incorporated
into the work. The contractor’s request
must include: The manufacturer’s name,
the model number, and other
information concerning the
performance, capacity, nature, and
rating of the machinery and mechanical
and other equipment; and full
information concerning the material or
articles. When directed by the
contracting officer, the contractor must
submit sufficient information on and, in
some cases, samples of the items
requiring approval. The contracting
officer uses this information to
determine whether the machinery,
equipment, material, or articles meet the
standards of quality specified in the
contract. A contracting officer may
reject work if the contractor installs
machinery, equipment, material, or
articles in the work without obtaining
the contracting officer’s approval.
FAR 52.236–13, Accident
Prevention, Alternate I. This alternate to
the basic clause requires the contractor
to submit a written proposed plan to
provide and maintain work
environments and procedures that will
safeguard the public and Government
personnel, property, materials, supplies,
and equipment exposed to contractor
operations and activities; avoid
interruptions of Government operations
and delays in project completion dates;
and control costs in the performance of
this contract. The plan must include an
analysis of the significant hazards to
life, limb, and property inherent in
contract work performance and a plan
for controlling these hazards. The
contracting officer and technical
representatives analyze the Accident
Prevention Plan to determine if the
proposed plan will satisfy the safety
requirements identified in the contract,
to include certain provisions of the
Occupational Safety and Health Act and
applicable standards issued by the
Secretary of Labor at 29 CFR part 1926
and 29 CFR part 1910.
FAR 52.236–15, Schedules for
Construction Contracts. This clause
requires the contractor to prepare and
submit to the contracting officer for
approval three copies of a practicable
schedule showing the order in which
the contractor proposes to perform the
work, and the dates on which the
contractor contemplates starting and
completing the several salient features
of the work (including acquiring
materials, plant, and equipment). The
contracting officer uses this information
to monitor progress under a Federal
construction contract when other
management approaches for ensuring
adequate progress are not used.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: Under the
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA)
(44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies
must obtain approval from the Office of
Management and Budget (OMB) for each
collection of information they conduct
or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also
requires Federal agencies to provide a
60-day notice in the Federal Register
concerning each proposed collection of
information, including each new
proposed collection, each proposed
extension of existing collection of
information, and each reinstatement of
previously approved information
collection before submitting the
collection to the OMB for approval. To
comply with this requirement, we are
publishing this notice of a proposed
data collection as described below.
The OMB is particularly interested in
comments that will help:
1. Evaluate whether the proposed
collection of information is necessary
for the proper performance of the
functions of the agency, including
whether the information will have
practical utility;

2. Evaluate the accuracy of the
agency’s estimate of the burden of the
proposed collection of information,
including the validity of the
methodology and assumptions used;
3. Enhance the quality, utility, and
clarity of the information to be
collected;
4. Minimize the burden of the
collection of information on those who
are to respond, including through the
use of appropriate automated,
electronic, mechanical, or other
technological collection techniques or
other forms of information technology,
e.g., permitting electronic submissions
of responses; and
5. Assess information collection costs.
Proposed Project
The National Survey of Family
Growth (NSFG)—(OMB Control No.
0920–0314, Exp. 06/30/2021)—
Reinstatement—National Center for
Health Statistics (NCHS), Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
Section 306 of the Public Health
Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 242k), as
amended, authorizes that the Secretary
of Health and Human Services (DHHS),
acting through NCHS, shall collect
statistics on ‘‘family formation, growth,
and dissolution,’’ as well as
‘‘determinants of health’’ and
‘‘utilization of health care’’ in the
United States. This clearance request
includes the data collection in 2022–
2024 for the continuous National Survey
of Family Growth (NSFG).
The NSFG was conducted
periodically between 1973 and 2002,
continuously in 2006–2010, and after a
break of 15 months, continuously in
2011–2019, by the National Center for
Health Statistics (NCHS/CDC). Each
year, about 13,500 households will be
screened, with about 5,000 participants
interviewed annually. Participation in
the NSFG is completely voluntary and
confidential. Interviews are expected to
average 50 minutes for males and 75
minutes for females. The response rate
during the 2011–2019 data collection
period ranged from 64.5% to 74.0%,
and the cumulative response rate for
this eight-year fieldwork period was
67.7%.
The NSFG program produces
descriptive statistics which document
factors associated with birth and
pregnancy rates, including
contraception, infertility, marriage,
cohabitation, and sexual activity, in the
US household population 15–49 years
(15–44 prior to 2015), as well as
behaviors that affect the risk of HIV and
other sexually transmitted diseases
(STD). The survey also disseminates
statistics on the medical care associated
with contraception, infertility,
pregnancy, and related health
conditions.
NSFG data users include the DHHS
programs that fund the survey,
including CDC/NCHS and 11 others
within the Department of Health and
Human Services:
Eunice Kennedy Shriver National
Institute for Child Health and Human
Development (NIH/NICHD)
Office of Population Affairs (OPA)
Children’s Bureau in the
Administration for Children and
Families (ACF/CB)
Office of Planning, Research, and
Evaluation (ACF/CB)
Office on Women’s Health (OASH/
OWH)
CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS
Prevention (CDC/NCHHSTP/DHAP)
CDC’s Division of STD Prevention
(CDC/NCHHSTP/DSTDP)
CDC’s Division of Adolescent and
School Health (CDC/NCHHSTP/
DASH)
CDC’s Division of Reproductive
Health (CDC/NCCDPHP/DRH)
CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention
and Control (CDC/NCCDPHP/DCPC)
CDC’s Division of Violence
Prevention (CDC/NCIPC/DVP)
The NSFG is also used by state and
local governments (primarily for
benchmarking to national data); private
research and action organizations
focused on men’s and women’s health,
child well-being, and marriage and the
family; academic researchers in the
social and public health sciences;
journalists, and many others.
This submission requests approval to
reinstate NSFG data collection for three
years. The reinstatement request
includes the conduction of several
methodological studies designed to
improve the efficiency and validity of
NSFG data collection for the purposes
described above. The total estimated
annualized time burden to respondents
is 6,119 hours. There is no cost to
respondents other than their time.
