SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    Section 5 of the International Air Transportation Fair Competitive

[[Page 24773]]

Practices Act of 1974 (49 U.S.C. 1517) (Fly America Act) requires that 
all Federal agencies and Government contractors and subcontractors use 
U.S. flag air carriers for U.S. Government-financed international air 
transportation of personnel (and their personal effects) or property, 
to the extent that service by those carriers is available. It requires 
the Comptroller General of the United States, in the absence of 
satisfactory proof of the necessity for foreign-flag air 
transportation, to disallow expenditures from funds, appropriated or 
otherwise established for the account of the United States, for 
international air transportation secured aboard a foreign-flag air 
carrier if an U.S. flag carrier is available to provide such services. 
In the event that the contractor selects a carrier other than an U.S. 
flag air carrier for international air transportation, the contractor 
shall include a certification on vouchers involving such 
transportation. The contracting officer uses the information furnished 
in the certification to determine whether adequate justification exists 
for the contractor's use of other than an U.S. flag air carrier.

B. Annual Reporting Burden:

    Respondents: 150.
    Responses Per Respondent: 2.
    Annual Responses: 300.
    Hours Per Response: .25.
    Total Burden Hours: 75.
    Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the
