Title, Associated Form, and OMB Number: Tender of Service and Letter of Intent for Personal Property Household Goods and Unaccompanied Baggage Shipments, DD Form 619, OMB Control Number 0702-0022.
Needs and Uses: Since household goods (HHG) move at Government expense, data is needed to choose the best service at lowest cost to the Government. The information provided by the carrier serves as a bid for contract to transport HHG, unaccompanied baggage, mobile homes, and boats. This information is collected on a regular basis, but is submitted intermittently throughout the year. Best-service-for-least-cost carrier receives the contract. DD Form 619 certifies that accessorial services were actually performed. The Government would not know which carriers to use for shipping personal property if they could not collect this information.
Affected Public: Business Or Other For-Profit.
Annual Burden Hours: 70,548.
Number of Respondents: 2,636.
Responses per Respondent: 441,677.
Average Burden per Response: 5 minutes.
