    Title: Pre-Award and Post-Delivery Review Requirements.
    (OMB Number: 2132-0544).
    Background: Under the Federal Transit Laws, at 49 U.S.C. Section 
5323(m), grantees must certify that pre-award and post-delivery reviews 
will be conducted when using FTA funds to purchase rolling stock and 
maintain these certifications on file. FTA implements this requirement 
in 49 CFR part 663 by describing the certificates that must be 
submitted by each bidder to assure compliance with the Buy America 
contract specification and vehicle safety requirements for rolling 
stock. The information collected on the certification forms is 
necessary for FTA grantees to meet the requirements of 49 U.S.C. 
Section 5323(m).
    Respondents: State and local government, business or other for-
profit institutions, non-profit institutions, and small business 
organizations.
    Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: 3.98 hours for each of the 
700 respondents.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 2,786 hours.
    Frequency: Annual.
