SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    The Helium Act (Pub. L. 86-777) (50 U.S.C. 167a, et seq.) and the 
Department of the Interior's implementing regulations (30 CFR parts 601 
and 602) require Federal agencies to procure all major helium 
requirements from the Bureau of Land Management, Department of the 
Interior.
    The FAR requires that the Contractor provide to the Contracting 
Officer the following data within 10 days after the Contractor or 
subcontractor receives a delivery of helium from a Federal helium 
supplier; (i) The name of the supplier; (ii) The amount of helium 
purchased; (iii) The delivery date(s); and (iv) The location where the 
helium was used. Such information will facilitate enforcement of the 
requirements of the Helium Act and the contractual provisions requiring 
the use of Government helium by agency contractors.
    The information is used in administration of certain Federal 
contracts to ensure contractor compliance with contract clauses. 
Without the information, the required use of Government helium cannot 
be monitored and enforced effectively.
    One comment was received in regards to this collection. The 
commenter indicated that the FAR was misquoted. The team concurs. The 
FAR requires that the contractor provide helium purchase information 10
