SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    The Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act (FASA) of 1994, Public Law 
103-355, provided authorities that streamlined the acquisition process 
and minimize burdensome Government-unique requirements. Sections 2001 
and 2051 of FASA substantially changed the statutory authorities for 
Government financing of contracts. Sections 2001(f) and 2051(e) provide 
specific authority for Government financing of purchases of commercial 
items; here, contract financing is permitted with certain limitations. 
Likewise, sections 2001(b) and 2051(b) substantially revised the 
authority for Government financing of purchases of non-commercial 
items, by permitting contract financing on the basis of certain classes 
of measures of performance.
    To implement these changes, DOD, NASA, and GSA amended the FAR by 
revising Subparts 32.0, 32.1, and 32.5; by adding new Subparts 32.2 and 
32.10; and by adding new clauses to 52.232.
    The coverage enables the Government to provide financing to assist 
in the performance of contracts for commercial items and provide 
financing for non-commercial items based on contractor performance.

estimated to average 2 hours per request for commercial financing and 2 
hours per request for performance-based financing, including time for 
reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and 
maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the 
collection of information.
    The annual reporting burden for commercial financing is estimated 
as follows:
    Respondents: 1,000.
    Responses per Respondent: 5.
    Total Responses: 5,000.
    Hours per Response: 2.

whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of
