                 Needs and Uses: This requirement provides for the collection of
                information related to providing Government property to contractors;
                contractor use and management of Government property; and reporting,
                redistribution, and disposal of property.
                 a. DFARS 245.302 concerns contracts with foreign governments or
                international organizations. Paragraph (1)(i) requires contractors to
                request and obtain contracting officer approval before using Government
                property on work for foreign governments and international
                organizations.
                 b. DFARS 245.604-3 concerns the sale of surplus Government
                property. Under paragraph (b), a contractor may be directed by the
                plant clearance officer to issue informal invitations for bids.
                [[Page 47630]]
                Under paragraph (d), a contractor may be authorized by the plant
                clearance officer to purchase or retain Government property at less
                than cost if the plant clearance officer determines this method is
                essential for expeditious plant clearance.
                 c. The clause at DFARS 252.245-7003, Contractor Property Management
                System Administration, prescribed at 245.107(5), and DFARS 245.105,
                Contractor's Property Management System Compliance, address the
                requirement for contractors to respond in writing to initial and final
                determinations from the administrative contracting officer that
                identifies deficiencies in the contractor's property management system.
                Estimated hours, number of respondents, and number of responses were
                increased slightly to accommodate a public comment.
                 d. DD Form 1348-1A, DoD Single Line Item Release/Receipt Document,
                is prescribed at DFARS 245.7001-3. The form is used when authorized by
                the plant clearance officer.
                 e. DD Form 1639, Scrap Warranty, is prescribed in the clause at
                DFARS 252.245-7004, Reporting, Reutilization, and Disposal. When scrap
                is sold by the contractor, after Government approval, the purchaser of
                the scrap material(s) may be required to certify, by signature on the
                DD Form 1639, that (i) the purchased material will be used only as
                scrap and (ii), if sold by the purchaser, the purchaser will obtain an
                identical warranty from the individual buying the scrap from the
                initial purchaser. The warranty contained in the DD Form 1639 expires
                by its terms five years from the date of the sale.
                 Comments and recommendations on the proposed information collection
                should be sent to Ms. Susan Minson, DoD Desk Officer, at
