[OMB Control No. 3090-0248]

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request Entitled Placement of 
Orders and Ordering Information

AGENCY: Office of Acquisition Policy, GSA.

ACTION: Notice of request for public comments regarding an extension to 
an existing OMB clearance (3090-0248). A request for public comments 
was published at 63 FR 5384, February 2, 1998. No comments were 
received from the public.


SUMMARY: The GSA hereby gives notice under the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), that it is requesting the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) to reinstate information collection, 3090-
0248, Placement of Orders and Ordering Information. This information 
collection advances improved information technology usage by 
facilitating the use of electronic data interchange (EDI). GSA's 
Federal Supply Service has discontinued placing paper delivery orders 
and now maximizes the use of computer to-computer EDI. As an 
alternative, a contractor can receive EDI delivery orders through 
facsimile transmission. This extended use of EDI furthers congressional 
and executive branch policies that Federal agencies provide leadership 
in advancing environmental objectives through technology and the 
expanded use of electronic commerce.

DATES: May 18, 1998.

ADDRESSES: Send comments to Edward Springer, GSA Desk Officer, Room 
3235, NEOB, Washington, DC 20503, and to Marjorie Ashby, General 
Services Administration (MVP), 18th & F Streets, NW, Washington, DC 

ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN: Respondents: 260; annual responses: 260; 
average hours per response: .30; burden hours: 130.

Al Matera, Office of GSA Acquisition Policy (202) 501-1224.
