Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the FAR, and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

Contracting officers terminate contracts, for default or convenience, only when it is in the best interest of the Government to do so.

Records regarding the terminated contract must be maintained for 3 years.
The information submitted or retained in connection with contract termination is used to reach an equitable settlement with firms and to protect the interests of the Government and the terminated contractor.
