schedule of new fees, and a collection process for such fees, for

the following services provided by the Administration:

(1) Air traffic control and related services provided to

aircraft other than military and civilian aircraft of the United

States government (!1) or of a foreign government that neither

take off from, nor land in, the United States.

(2) Services (other than air traffic control services) provided

to a foreign government or services provided to any entity

obtaining services outside the United States, except that the

Administrator shall not impose fees in any manner for

production-certification related service performed outside the

United States pertaining to aeronautical products manufactured

outside the United States.

(b) Limitations. -

(1) Authorization and impact considerations. - In establishing

fees under subsection (a), the Administrator -

(A) is authorized to recover in fiscal year 1997

$100,000,000; and

(B) shall ensure that each of the fees required by subsection

(a) is reasonably related to the Administration's costs, as

determined by the Administrator, of providing the service

rendered. Services for which costs may be recovered include the

costs of air traffic control, navigation, weather services,

training and emergency services which are available to

facilitate safe transportation over the United States, and

other services provided by the Administrator or by programs

financed by the Administrator to flights that neither take off

nor land in the United States. The Determination (!2) of such

costs by the Administrator is not subject to judicial review.

(2) Publication; comment. - The Administrator shall publish in

the Federal Register an initial fee schedule and associated

collection process as an interim final rule, pursuant to which

public comment will be sought and a final rule issued.

(c) Use of Experts and Consultants. - In developing the system,

the Administrator may consult with such nongovernmental experts as

the Administrator may employ and the Administrator may utilize the

services of experts and consultants under section 3109 of title 5

without regard to the limitation imposed by the last sentence of

section 3109(b) of such title, and may contract on a sole source

basis, notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the

Administrator may retain such experts under a contract awarded on a

basis other than a competitive basis and without regard to any such

provisions requiring competitive bidding or precluding sole source

contract authority.

(d) Production-Certification Related Service Defined. - In this

section, the term "production-certification related service" has

the meaning given that term in appendix C of part 187 of title 14,

Code of Federal Regulations.
