GSA has been conducting a regulatory review initiative to identify areas which might be revised or eliminated. Upon review of GSAR part 553, we uncovered a discrepancy between the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and acquisition.gov. The current language in subpart 553.2 in the CFR was published in the Federal Register, Vol. 64, No. 131, on July 9, 1999 and has not changed since. However, acquisition.gov has no such language. It is determined that all of the guidance in GSAR Part 553 in the CFR should be removed.
II. Discussion of the Rule
This direct final rule amends the GSAR to remove regulations regarding forms from subpart 553.2 and section 553.300. The subpart has no content, just the header of “Illustrations of Forms”. There is no prescription information that follows. In addition, text at 553.300 contains erroneous information on how to obtain copies of forms. Therefore, the entirety of GSAR Part 553 is unnecessary.
