SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 A. Purpose FAR 31.205–46, Travel Costs, requires that, except in extraordinary and temporary situations, costs incurred by a contractor for lodging, meals, and incidental expenses shall be considered to be reasonable and allowable only to the extent that they do not exceed on a daily basis the per diem rates in effect as of the time of travel. These requirements are set forth in the Federal Travel Regulations for travel in the conterminous 48 United States, the Joint Travel Regulations, Volume 2, Appendix A, for travel in Alaska, Hawaii, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and territories and possessions of the United States, and the Department of State Standardized Regulations, section 925, ‘‘Maximum Travel Per Diem Allowances for Foreign Areas.’’ The burden generated by this coverage is in the form of the contractor preparing a justification whenever a higher actual expense reimbursement method is used. B. Discussion and Analysis Two respondents submitted public comments on the extension of the previously approved information collection. The analysis of the public comments is summarized as follows: Comment: One respondent stated that per diem reimbursement is reasonable so long as the per diem limits match the actual costs of travel and saves considerable administrative costs. The other respondent stated that the collection was both necessary and useful, but suggested that the Government explore the use of the Defense Travel System or a similar system to control travel costs. Response: The comments are acknowledged, but do not address the estimated burden associated with this information collection requirement. The total estimated annual reporting burden remains the same as previously approved. C. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 5,800. Responses per Respondent: 10. Total Responses: 58,000. Hours per Response: .25. Total Burden Hours: 14,500. Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the information collection documents from the General Services Administration, Regulatory Secretariat (MVCB), 1275 E:\FR\FM\24MYN1.SGM 24MYN1
