AGENCY:

Office of Acquisition Policy, General Services Administration.

ACTION:

Proposed rule; extension of comment period.

SUMMARY:

The General Services Administration (GSA) issued a proposed rule on March 4, 2015, amending the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to include clauses that would require vendors to report transactional data from orders and prices paid by ordering activities. This includes orders placed against both Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) contract vehicles and GSA's non-FSS contract vehicles—Government-wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs) and Government-wide Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quality (IDIQ) contracts. For FSS vehicles, the clause would be introduced in phases, beginning with a pilot for select products and commoditized services. The new clause will be paired with changes to the basis of award monitoring requirement of the existing price reductions clause, resulting in a burden reduction for participating FSS contractors. This rulemaking does not apply to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) FSS contract holders. The comment period is being extended to provide additional time for interested parties to provide comments for GSAR Case 2013-G504, Transactional Data Reporting, to May 11, 2015.

DATES:

For the proposed rule published on March 4, 2015 (80 FR 11619), submit comments by May 11, 2015.
