In accordance with Executive Order 13777, Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda, the General Services Administration is seeking input on repealing, replacing, and modifying its acquisition regulations, policies, standards, business practices, and guidance.
GSA is also seeking input on GSA travel, management, property management, and leasing regulations that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement, or modification.
GSA issued the notices pursuant to section 3 of E.O. 13777, which directs agencies to establish a Regulatory Reform Task Force to evaluate existing regulations and “make recommendations to the agency head regarding their repeal, replacement, or modification.”
The task forces are instructed to identify regulations that eliminate jobs or inhibit job creation; are outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective; impose costs that exceed benefits; create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with regulatory reform initiatives and policies; or derive from EOs or other presidential directives that have been rescinded or substantially modified.
With respect to the GSAR, GSA is particularly interested in comments on evergreen contracting, price adjustments, catalogs, and requirements relating to utilities, construction, and facilities.
GSA also encourages comments on the recent Transactional Data Reporting final rule, which is in a pilot stage, the Price Reductions Clause (GSAR 552.238-75), and the Commercial Sales Practice format.
