Background The General Services Administration (GSA) is amending the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to update the text addressing GSAR Part 503, Improper Business Practices and Personal Conflicts of Interest; Subpart 503.1, Safeguards; Subpart 503.2, Contractor Gratuities to Government Personnel; Subpart 503.4, Contingent Fees; Subpart 503.5, Other Improper Business Practices; Subpart 503.7, Voiding and Rescinding Contracts; and Subpart 503.10, Contractor Code of Business Ethnics and Conduct. This rule is a result of the General Services Administration Acquisition Manual (GSAM) Rewrite initiative. The initiative was undertaken by GSA to revise the GSAM to maintain consistency with the FAR and implement streamlined and innovative acquisition procedures that contractors, offerors, and GSA acquisition personnel can use when entering into and administering contractual relationships. The GSAM incorporates the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) as well as internal agency acquisition policy. GSA will rewrite each part of the GSAR and GSAM, and as each GSAR part is rewritten, will publish it in the Federal Register. This rule covers the rewrite of the regulatory portion of Part 503. The rule revises GSAR Subpart 503.1, Safeguards, to delete 503.104–1, Definitions, and 503.104–9, Contracts clauses, to ensure consistency with the GSAM that provides that the acquisition of leasehold interests in real property is established by GSAM Part 570; Subpart 503.2, Contractor Gratuities to Government Personnel, to revise 503.204(a)(2) to delete the term ‘‘joint venture’’ to ensure grammatical and structural clarity; to delete from 503.204(c) the reference to the Chairman of the GSA Board of Contract Appeals which no longer exists, and revise 503.204(f); to ensure consistency with FAR 3.204(f), Subpart 503.4, Contingents Fees, to delete 503.404, Contract clause, to ensure consistency with the GSAM that provides that the acquisition of leasehold interests in real property is established by GSAM Part 570; Subpart 503.5, Other Improper Business Practices, to revise 503.570–1, Policy, to delete the term ‘‘referring’’ and add ‘‘making references’’ for clarity; Subpart 503.7, Voiding and Rescinding E:\FR\FM\04AUP1.SGM 04AUP1
