L. 95-563, 92 Stat. 2389 and indirectly, the Prompt Payment Act of 1982, 31 U.S.C. 3902(a), provide for the calculation of interest due on claims at a rate established by the Secretary of the Treasury for the Renegotiation Board under Pub. L. 92-41.
Therefore, notice is given that the Secretary of the Treasury has determined that the rate of interest applicable, for the period beginning January 1, 2002 and ending on June 30, 2002, is 5.500 per centum per annum.
