SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
A. OMB Control Number, Title, and any Associated Form(s)
    9000-0091, Anti-Kickback Procedures.
B. Needs and Uses
    Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.203-7, Anti-Kickback
Procedures, requires that all contractors have in place and follow
reasonable procedures designed to prevent and detect in its own
operations and direct business relationships, violations of 41 U.S.C.
chapter 87, Kickbacks. Whenever prime contractors or subcontractors
have reasonable grounds to believe that a violation of the statute may
have occurred, they are required to report the possible violation in
writing to the contracting agency inspector general, the head of the
contracting agency if an agency does not have an inspector general, or
the Department of Justice. The information is used to determine if any
violations of the statute have occurred.
    There is no Governmentwide data collection process or system which
identifies the number of alleged violations of 41 U.S.C. chapter 87,
Kickbacks, that are reported annually to agency inspectors general, the
heads of the contracting agency if an agency does not have an inspector
general, or the Department of Justice.

C. Annual Burden
    Respondents: 100.
    Total Annual Responses: 100.
    Total Burden Hours: 2,000.
D. Public Comment
    A 60-day notice was published in the Federal Register at 84 FR
44619, on August 26, 2019. One comment was received; however, it did
not change the estimate of the burden.
    Comment: The commenter asked for support in urging and supporting
Senator Thune to reintroduce S. 545, the Pay Our Coast Guard Act, and
seek quick action in bringing it to the floor for a vote. The act was
introduced in the 114th Congress to make continuous appropriations for
Coast Guard pay for a government shutdown.
    Response: This comment is out of scope because the information
collection requirements covered through OMB Control No. 9000-0091 do
not relate to the topic of appropriations for Coast Guard pay.
    Obtaining Copies: Requesters may obtain a copy of the information
collection documents from the General Services Administration,
Regulatory Secretariat Division (MVCB), 1800 F Street NW, Washington,
DC 20405, telephone 202-501-4755. Please cite OMB Control No. 9000-
0091, Anti-Kickback Procedures, in all correspondence.
    Dated: November 20, 2019.
