Title: Procurement Contracts, OMB Control No. 3038-0031. This is a

Abstract: This information collection consists of procurement
activities relating to solicitations, amendments to solicitations,
requests for quotations, construction contracts, awards of contracts,
performance bonds, and payment information for individuals (vendors) or
contractors engaged in providing supplies or services.
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a
currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for the
CFTC's regulations were published on December 30, 1981. See 46 FR 63035
(Dec. 30, 1981). The Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment
period soliciting comments on this collection of information was
published on November 21, 2012 (77 FR 69806).
Burden statement: The respondent burden for this collection is
estimated to average 1 hour per response. This estimate includes the
time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and
utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting,
validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining
information and disclosing and providing information; adjust the
existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and
requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of
information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. The
numbers contained in this justification differ from those in the 60-day
notice because of a revised estimate of the number of respondents.
Respondents/Affected Entities: 214.
Estimated number of responses: 214.
Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 548 hours.
Frequency of collection: annually.
Send comments regarding the burden estimated or any other aspect of
