Start Preamble


Office of Governmentwide Policy, GSA.


Final rule.


The General Services Administration revised the regulations governing the abandonment and destruction of Federal personal property in the custody of executive agencies. The revised regulations are found in the Federal Management Regulation (FMR). This final rule removes from the Federal Property Management Regulations (FPMR) the old regulations governing use of the abandonment/destruction authority. This action is necessary to avoid duplicative coverage in the FPMR and the FMR. A cross reference is added to the FPMR to direct readers to the location of the new regulations in the FMR.
