Please review and distribute as appropriate.

The Form 97 is used by the U.S. Government to transfer title on a
government-owned vehicle.  Recently, customers applying for title to
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) travel trailers have
submitted a U.S. Government Standard Form 97 with an electronic
seller*s signature rather than an original handwritten signature. 
A Form 97 with electronic signature is acceptable evidence of ownership
under the following guidelines: 

-	The electronic signature must show the seller*s representative
Charlotte Said
Sales Contracting Officer
GSA, Room 13A05
819 Taylor Street
Ft. Worth, Texas 76102-0000

- The vehicle to be titled is a trailer or is otherwise exempt from the
federal odometer requirements; and there are no corrections or
strikeovers on the Form 97.

Attached is an example of a Form 97 with an electronic signature that
is acceptable.  

We anticipate the Form 97 will continue to be issued with electronic
signatures requesting transfer of title for the FEMA travel trailers
through mid-2011.
