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.
    FAR 8.5, Acquisition of Helium, and the clause 52.208-8 Required 
Sources for Helium and Helium Usage Data, 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. The FAR requires that the 
contractor provide helium purchase information 10 days after delivery 
from a federal helium supplier, not for the contractor to forecast what 
they are going to purchase.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

    In consultation with subject matter experts at the Department of 
the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, Helium Operations, the number 
of estimated 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.
    Respondents: 26.
    Responses per Respondent: 1.
    Total Responses: 26.
    Hours per Response: 1.
    Total Burden Hours: 26.

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 
burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, 
through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology.
    Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the 
information collection documents from the General Services 
Administration, Regulatory Secretariat Division (MVCB), 1800 F Street
