SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    Standard Form (SF) 1034, Public Voucher for Purchases and Services 
Other than Personal, is used by the agencies for regular payments to 
vendors under cost-reimbursement contracts, and for terminations.
    Cost type contracts provide for interim payment for costs vouchered 
on SF 1034. This is applicable to all cost-reimbursement type 
contracts, including cost-reimbursement portions of fixed price 
contracts, letter contracts which provide for reimbursement of costs, 
time and materials contracts and labor-hour contracts. Vouchers may be 
submitted at the beginning of each billing period for costs incurred 
during the preceding billing period. Vouchers should not be submitted 
more than once a month unless such arrangements are made with the 
Contracting Officer.
    Termination clauses for cost-reimbursement contracts (see FAR 
49.503(a)) provide for the settlement of costs and fee, if any, in 
cases of termination by convenience. The contract clauses governing 
costs shall determine what costs are allowable. When the contract has 
been completely terminated, the contractor shall not use SF 1034 after 
the last day of the sixth month following the month in which the 
termination is effective. The contractor may elect to stop using 
vouchers at any time during the 6-month period. When the contractor has 
vouchered out all costs within the 6-month period, a proposal for fee, 
if any, may be submitted on the SF 1437, Settlement Proposal for Cost-
Reimbursement Type Contracts, (see FAR 49.602-1) or by letter 
appropriately certified. The contractor must submit a substantiated 
proposal for fee to the Termination Contracting Officer (TCO) within 1 
year from the effective date of termination, unless the period is 
extended by the TCO. When the use of vouchers is discontinued, the 
contractor shall submit all unvouchered costs and the proposed fee, if 
any, as specified in FAR 49.303. When the contract is partially 
terminated, FAR 49.304 shall apply.
    In consultation with subject matter experts at the Department of 
Defense, the number of responses per year was verified as being within 
an acceptable range, as was the average time required to read and 
prepare information which was estimated at 1 hour per response.

C. Public Comments

    Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
functions of the FAR, and whether it will have practical utility; 
whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of 
information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and 
methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and ways in which we can minimize the
