FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Edward Chambers, Procurement Analyst, Contract Policy Branch, GSA, (202) 501–4770 or e-mail Edward.chambers@gsa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose The Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act (FASA) of 1994, Public Law 103– 355, provided authorities that streamlined the acquisition process and minimize burdensome Governmentunique requirements. Sections 2001 and 2051 of FASA substantially changed the statutory authorities for Government financing of contracts. Sections 2001(f) and 2051(e) provide specific authority for Government financing of purchases of commercial items, and sections 2001(b) and 2051(b) substantially revised the authority for Government financing of purchases of noncommercial items. Sections 2001(f) and 2051(e) provide specific authority for Government financing of purchases of commercial items. These paragraphs authorize the Government to provide contract financing with certain limitations. Sections 2001(b) and 2051(b) also amended the authority for Government financing of non-commercial purchases by authorizing financing on the basis of certain classes of measures of performance. To implement these changes, DOD, NASA, and GSA amended the FAR by revising Subparts 32.0, 32.1, and 32.5; by adding new Subparts 32.2 and 32.10; and by adding new clauses to 52.232. The coverage enables the Government to provide financing to assist in the performance of contracts for commercial items and provide financing for noncommercial items based on contractor performance. The single public comment was not relevant, however, as it did not address the burden statement set forth in the Federal Register Notice. E:\FR\FM\24JAN1.SGM 24JAN1
