Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Aviation Into-
Plane Reimbursement Card (DFARS Case 2006-D017)

AGENCY: Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense 

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: DoD has issued a final rule amending the Defense Federal 
Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to update text pertaining to 
DoD fuel card programs. The rule addresses use of the Aviation Into-
plane Reimbursement card for purchases of aviation fuel and oil.

EFFECTIVE DATE: February 12, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Gary Delaney, Defense Acquisition 
Regulations System, OUSD(AT&L)DPAP(DARS), IMD 3C132, 3062 Defense 
Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-3062. Telephone (703) 602-8384; 
facsimile (703) 602-0350. Please cite DFARS Case 2006-D017.


A. Background

    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.
