SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The International Trade Administration's (ITA) Advocacy Center 
marshals federal resources to assist U.S. firms competing for foreign 
government procurements worldwide. The Advocacy Center works closely 
with the Trade Promotion Coordination Committee, which is chaired by 
the Secretary of Commerce, and includes 19 federal agencies involved in 
Export Promotion. Advocacy assistance is wide and varied, but most 
often it is used to assist U.S. companies that must deal with foreign 
governments or government-owned entities to win or maintain business 
transactions in foreign markets. The Advocacy Center's goal is to 
ensure opportunities for American companies in the international 
marketplace.
    The purpose of the Advocacy questionnaire is to collect the 
information necessary to evaluate whether it would be appropriate to 
provide U.S. Government (USG) advocacy assistance on a given 
transaction. The Advocacy Center, appropriate ITA officials, officers/
Ambassadors at U.S. Embassies/Consulates worldwide and other federal 
agencies that provide advocacy support to U.S. companies, request 
companies seeking USG advocacy support to complete the questionnaire. 
The information derived from a completed questionnaire is critical in 
helping the Advocacy Center determine whether it is in the U.S. 
national interest to advocate on a specific transaction.
