A. Background

In January of 1998, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget signed a determination letter transferring all GSA reproduction facilities to the Defense Automated Printing Service (DAPS), DOD, thereby transferring the GSA mission of providing reproduction services for all agencies. As a result of this transfer and Start Printed Page 78732further review by GSA's Office of Legal Counsel, GSA has concluded that coverage in the Federal Property Management Regulations (FPMR) addressing centralized field duplicating services made available by GSA in Federal buildings should be deleted.
