Title: Department Of Veterans Affairs Acquisition Regulation (VAAR) 832.202-4, Security for Government Financing.
OMB Control Number: 2900-0688.

Abstract: This request for an extension is for VAAR 832.202-4, Security for Government Financing. FAR subpart 32.2 authorizes the use of certain types of Government financing on commercial item purchases. 41 U.S.C. 255(f) requires the Government to obtain adequate security for Government financing. However, FAR 32.202-4(a)(2) provides that, subject to agency regulations, the contracting officer may determine that an offeror’s financial condition is adequate security. VAAR 832.202-4, Security for Government Financing, specifies the type of information that the contracting officer may obtain to determine whether or not the offeror’s financial condition constitutes adequate security.
The information that is gathered under VAAR 832.202-4 will be used by the VA contracting officer to assess whether or not the contractor’s overall financial condition represents adequate security to warrant paying the contractor in advance.
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 Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published at Volume 83, No. 7, January 10, 2018, pages 1286.
