Reports, Forms and Recordkeeping Requirements; Agency Information 
Collection Activity Under OMB Review

AGENCY: Department of Transportation, (DOT).

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.


SUMMARY: This notice lists those forms, reports, and recordkeeping 
requirements imposed upon the public which were transmitted by the 
Department of Transportation to the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) for its approval in accordance with the requirements of the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). Section 3507 of 
Title 44 of the United States Code, as adopted by the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995, requires that agencies prepare a notice for 
publication in the Federal Register, listing information collection 
requests submitted to OMB for approval or renewal under that Act. OMB 
reviews and approves agency submissions in accordance with criteria set 
forth in that Act. In carrying out its responsibilities, OMB also 
considers public comments on the proposed forms and the reporting and 
recordkeeping requirements. OMB approval of an information collection 
requirement must be renewed at least once every three years.
DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before 
November 22, 1996.
ADDRESSES: Written comments on the DOT information collection requests 
should be forwarded, as quickly as possible, to the Office of 
Management and Budget, New Executive Office Building, Room 10202, 
Attention DOT/FAA Desk Officer, Washington, D.C. 20503.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)

    Title: Assessment of Federal Aviation Administration Acquisition 
Management System (FAAMS).
    OMB Control Number: 2120-new.
    Type of Request: New collection.
    Affected Public: Contractors who will be using the new system, an 
estimated 1,500 respondents.
    Abstract: On April 1, 1996, the Federal Aviation Administration 
(FAA) under authority of Section 348 of Public Law 104-50, implemented 
a new acquisition management system unique to FAA. The agency must 
ensure that the system has an all around benefit for both the 
government and industry. Rather than operating on conjecture, the 
agency is seeking direct effectiveness information from industry. The 
FAA shall use information collected through this ``new collection'' to 
assess the impact that the new FAAMS has had on system-users, determine 
if improvement(s) would enhance timeliness and cost-effectiveness of 
agency acquisitions, and refine the process(es) as appropriate.
    Burden: The estimated total annual burden is 2,250 hours.

    Issued in Washington, D.C. on October 15, 1996.
