This acquisition system is needed to address the unique needs of the 
agency and to allow the agency to move quickly and efficiently to 
implement new technology. The respondents are those contractors of 
goods, services, and property desiring to do business with the FAA. The 
estimated number of respondents is 3500 contractors. The estimated 
burden is 350,000 annually.
    4. 2120-0633, Exemptions for Air Taxi and Commuter Air Carrier 
Operations. This collection is used to (1) expedite the Department's 
issuance of operating authority for small charter air carriers, (2) 
protect the competitive interests of these carriers, and (3) relieve 
the safety concerns of the traveling public with regard to the 
operations of these carriers. The respondents are an estimated 2100 air 
taxi operators and commuter air carriers (that are air taxis that offer 
scheduled passenger service.). It is estimated that the burden hours
