GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION (GSA)
Statement of Regulatory Priorities
The General Services Administration (GSA) establishes policy for and 
provides economical and efficient management of Government property and 
records, including construction and operation of buildings, procurement 
and distribution of supplies, utilization and disposal of property; 
transportation, traffic, and communications management; and management 
of the Governmentwide automatic data processing resources program.
GSA's regulatory priorities for 1995 reflect the President's mandate 
that regulations be streamlined to help create a Government that works 
better and costs less.
Changing the multiple award schedule ordering procedures is by far the 
most indicative of GSA's commitment to deregulate and unify a 
cumbersome bureaucratic process. Revisions to three regulations will 
result in a uniform set of guiding principles that will make it easier 
for agencies to buy products and services at lower prices.
Revising the entire GSA Acquisition Regulation is another sign of GSA's 
commitment to a simplified regulatory system that works toward 
providing services in a timely, efficient, and cost-effective manner.
As required by E.O. 12866, GSA will strive to ensure that our 
regulations reflect the President's regulatory philosophy, principles, 
and priorities, and that they conform with GSA's restructured business 
plan. Periodic reviews will guarantee regulations that are effective, 
consistent, sensible, and understandable. While GSA's regulations have 
limited impact on the general public and State and local governments, 
these reviews will also focus on ways to eliminate any unnecessary 
requirements our actions may impose on society. Our continuing policy 
is to use regulatory direction only when it offers the most effective 
means of carrying out GSA's mission and responsibilities, eliminates 
requirements that are a burden, and simplifies procurement procedures.

167. <bullet> IMPLEMENTATION OF PROCUREMENT STREAMLINING LEGISLATION
Legal Authority:


 40 USC 486(c)


CFR Citation:


 Not yet determined


Legal Deadline:


None


Abstract:


Congress is actively considering proposed legislation that will make 
major changes in the laws that impact the Federal procurement process 
in order to streamline procurement procedures. The proposed legislation 
addresses many of the recommendations of the Section 800 panel on 
streamlining the procurement laws applicable to the Department of 
Defense as well as the recommendations of the National Performance 
Review.


Statement of Need:


Once the proposed legislation is enacted, major changes in the Federal 
Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and agency supplemental acquisition 
regulations will be required to implement the statute. GSA, the 
Department of Defense, and the National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration, which are jointly responsible for the FAR, will be 
responsible for promulgating necessary changes to the FAR to implement 
the procurement streamlining legislation.


Summary of the Legal Basis:


Unknown at this time. Legislation has not yet been enacted.


Alternatives:


Since the legislation has not been enacted, the alternatives for 
regulatory implementation cannot be detailed at this time.


Anticipated Costs and Benefits:


Formulation of a cost benefit analysis is premature until the statute 
is enacted.


Risks:


Cannot be established at this time.


Timetable:


Next Action Undetermined


Small Entities Affected:


None


Government Levels Affected:


None


Procurement:


This is a procurement-related action for which there is no statutory 
requirement. There is a paperwork burden associated with this action.

168. REISSUANCE OF THE GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION ACQUISITION 
REGULATION (GSAR)
Legal Authority:


 40 USC 486(c)


CFR Citation:


 48 CFR 501


Legal Deadline:


None


Abstract:


GSA proposes to revise and reissue chapter 5, 48 CFR, in its entirety. 
The reissuance will represent the culmination of the Total Quality 
Management project to review GSA's acquisition regulation/directive 
system.


Statement of Need:


GSA plans to publish a proposal to revise the entire GSAR. The proposal 
will redefine the objectives of the procurement system and its 
regulatory base, establish very narrow standards for the scope and 
nature of the regulation, eliminate provisions that impede productivity 
or unnecessarily increase administrative costs, reduce rigid rules in 
favor of guiding principles, delegate authority and accountability to 
the lowest level consistent with competency, and reduce the overall 
volume of the regulation by at least 50 percent. After consideration of 
public comments, the entire regulation will be issued in final form.


Alternatives:


Alternatives considered include an approach which would continue to 
include nonregulatory internal guidance in the GSAR rather than putting 
the internal guidance in a separate internal directive to be 
distributed to contracting personnel within the agency.


Anticipated Costs and Benefits:


Issuance of the final regulation will facilitate GSA's ability to 
operate in a competitive environment by enabling GSA contracting 
offices to deliver services in a more timely, efficient, and cost-
effective manner. A specific dollar savings cannot be calculated.

169. MULTIPLE AWARD SCHEDULE PRICE REDUCTIONS CLAUSE
Legal Authority:


 40 USC 486(c)


CFR Citation:


 48 CFR 538; 48 CFR 552


Legal Deadline:


None


Abstract:


This proposed change to the General Services Administration Acquisition 
Regulation would prescribe a Price Reductions clause for use in 
multiple award schedule (MAS) solicitations and contracts. The clause 
is a modification of that currently in use. The requirements clarify 
the clause's applicability, reduce contractor reporting requirements, 
and eliminate MAS reductions based on a low price to an individual 
Federal agency.


Statement of Need:


GSA intends to amend the GSAR to prescribe the Price Reductions clause 
for use in multiple award schedule (MAS) contracts. The clause will 
replace the Price Reductions clause that is currently being used.


The proposed clause clarifies the clause's applicability, reduces 
contractor reporting requirements, and eliminates MAS reductions based 
on a low price to an individual Federal agency. GSA proposes to amend
