A. Background

GSA has the responsibility to provide guidance to agencies on property management accountability systems. This bulletin is the first document issued by GSA's Office of Travel, Transportation, and Asset Management which addresses only this subject. Further guidance on this topic in the form of bulletins or regulations is planned.

Section 524 of Title 40 of the United States Code (40 U.S.C. 524) requires that executive agencies maintain adequate inventory controls and accountability systems for property under their control. Section 121(b)(2) of 40 U.S.C. requires the Administrator of General Services to work with the Comptroller General and other executive agencies to develop accounting systems for Federal property. The term “system” includes information technology components as well as the non-automated processes and procedures used to account for Federal property.
