Proposed policy statement with request for comments. ACTION: The Government Accountability Office (GAO) is providing notice of its intent to adopt the policies and procedures contained in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) regarding the debarment, suspension, and ineligibility of government contractors. As a legislative branch agency, GAO is not subject to the requirements of the FAR. However, it is GAO’s general policy to follow the FAR, as appropriate and applicable. Mandatory application of the FAR is not to be inferred from GAO’s adoption of this policy. GAO’s procurement rules are not contained in the Code of Federal Regulations, but instead are contained in an internal GAO document referred to as ‘‘Government Accountability Office Procurement Guidelines’’ (hereinafter, GAO’s Procurement Order). As such, the proposed policy regarding debarment and suspension will be added as a chapter to GAO’s Procurement Order. However, persons or entities seeking government contracts could potentially be adversely affected if, pursuant to the proposed policy, they were debarred, suspended, or proposed for debarment by GAO. As such, GAO is providing interested persons an opportunity for notice and comment on this proposed policy. DATE: Comments must be received on or before November 14, 2011. GAO will publish the effective date of the proposed policy when responding to comments in a future Federal Register. ADDRESSES: Address all comments concerning this proposed policy to Government Accountability Office, Office of the General Counsel, Attn: Legal Services, Room 7838, 441 G Street, NW., Washington, DC 20548; or e-mail, bielecj@gao.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John A. Bielec, Assistant General Counsel, 202–512–2846. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: GAO is not subject to the Administrative Procedure Act and accordingly, is not required by law to seek comments before issuing a policy that has general applicability and legal effect. However, GAO has decided to invite interested persons to comment on this proposed SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\30SEN1.SGM 30SEN1
