DIGEST: GAO BELIEVES DRAFT SEGMENT OF FAR COVERING SUBPART 47.4, AIR TRANSPORTATION BY U. S.-FLAG CARRIERS SHOULD BE COMBINED FOR EASE OF REFERENCE WITH PROPOSED SUBPART 47.5, OCEAN TRANSPORTATION BY U. S. FLAG VESSELS AND RETITLED "RESTRICTIONS ON USE OF FOREIGN-FLAG TRANSPORTATION." COMBINING SECTIONS WOULD PERMIT CONTRACTING OFFICERS TO MAKE BETTER INFORMED CHOICE OF TRANSPORTATION DECISIONS. GAO HAS NO COMMENTS ON PROPOSED SUBPART 4.8, CONTRACT FILES, OR PART 8, REQUIRED SOURCES OF SUPPLIES AND SERVICES.

MR. WILLIAM J. MARAIST, ASSISTANT ADMINISTRATOR FOR REGULATIONS:

BY LETTER DATED JUNE 24, 1981, YOU REQUESTED OUR COMMENTS REGARDING A DRAFT SEGMENT OF THE FEDERAL ACQUISITION REGULATION COVERING SUBPARTS 4.8, CONTRACT FILES, 47.4, AIR TRANSPORTATION BY U. S.-FLAG CARRIERS, AND PART 8, REQUIRED SOURCES OF SUPPLIES AND SERVICES.

FOR EASE OF REFERENCE, WE BELIEVE PROPOSED SUBPART 47.4 COVERING AIR TRANSPORTATION BY U. S.-FLAG CARRIERS SHOULD BE COMBINED WITH PROPOSED SUBPART 47.5 COVERING OCEAN TRANSPORTATION BY U. S.-FLAG VESSELS AND RETITLED "RESTRICTIONS ON USE OF FOREIGN-FLAG TRANSPORTATION." WE BELIEVE A CONSOLIDATED SECTION WOULD PERMIT CONTRACTING OFFICERS TO MAKE BETTER INFORMED CHOICE OF TRANSPORTATION DECISIONS.

WE HAVE NO FURTHER COMMENTS TO OFFER.
