GSA has decided to withdraw GSAR Case 2008-G509; Rewrite of GSAR Part 536, Construction and Architect-Engineer Contracts, which was published in the Federal Register at 73 FR 73199, December 2, 2008.
This rule was a result of the GSA Acquisition Manual (GSAM) Rewrite initiative undertaken by GSA to revise the GSAM to maintain consistency with the FAR and implement streamlined and innovative acquisition procedures. This rule proposed amendments to the GSAR to update text addressing GSAR Part 536: Subpart 536.101, Applicability; Subpart 536.201, Evaluation of Contractor Performance; Subpart 536.202, Specifications; Subpart 536.270, Exercise of Options; Subpart 536.271, Project Labor Agreements; Subpart 536.5, Contract Clauses; and Subpart 536.602, Selection of Firms for Architect-Engineer Contracts.
GSA is opening a series of new GSAR cases to separately address these issues and update the GSAM Part 536 coverage. The new GSAR cases will focus on the areas that require immediate modernization to position GSA to meet current and future needs of contracting activities.
