DoD uses the Aviation Into-plane Reimbursement (AIR) card for purchases of aviation fuel and oil at commercial airport facilities. The AIR card is a centrally-billed, Government commercial purchase card that is an alternative to use of the Standard Form 44, Purchase Order-Invoice-Voucher. This final rule amends DFARS 213.306 to address use of the AIR card. In addition, the rule amends DFARS 213.301 to clarify that DoD has multiple fuel card programs.
DoD published a proposed rule at 71 FR 34867 on June 16, 2006. DoD received no comments on the proposed rule and has adopted the proposed rule as a final rule without change.
This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.
B. Regulatory Flexibility Act
DoD certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the Aviation Into-plane Reimbursement card is an alternative to use of the Standard Form 44, Purchase Order-Invoice-Voucher, designed primarily for on-the-spot, over-the-counter purchases while away from the purchasing office or at isolated activities.
C. Paperwork Reduction Act
The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply, because the rule does not impose any information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.Start List of Subjects
