We report the spectral analysis of Swift-BAT GRB 060906 (trigger #228316)
(Racusin, et al., GCN Circ. 5528; & Sakamoto, et al., GCN Circ. 5534).
Using the response matrix appropriate for the burst position in the 
BAT field-of-view during the slew: 
The time-averaged spectrum from T-41.8 to T+6.0 is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum
is 2.02 +- 0.11.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is
2.21 +- 0.14 x 10^-6 erg/cm2.  The 1-sec peak photon flux measured
from T-24.86 sec in the 15-150 keV band is 2.0 +- 0.3 ph/cm2/sec.
All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence level.
