Comments were requested on a draft segment of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) covering general and ocean transportation by U.S. flag vessels. The draft is unclear as to whether certain methods of acquiring transportation and related services are to be covered under FAR. The Office of Procurement Policy's intent needs to be more clearly stated in order to avoid confusion in this area. GAO could see no value in highlighting compliance with "Cargo Preference" in the sentence of one particular section while "Fly American" and other requirements were omitted. This sentence should be deleted. GAO believes that information given in one section recommending sources for assistance and guidance to agencies on transportation matters would be more effectively presented early in the text.
