SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose The General Services Administration (GSA) has various mission responsibilities related to the acquisition and provision of real property management, and disposal of real and personal property. These mission responsibilities generate requirements that are realized through the solicitation and award of leasing contracts. Individual solicitations and resulting contracts may impose unique information collection/reporting PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18981 requirements on contractors, not required by regulation, but necessary to (1) evaluate whether the physical attributes of offered properties meet the Government’s requirements and (2) compare the owner/offeror’s price proposal against competing offers. These Form 1364 versions are products of a GSA Lease Reform Initiative to improve the lease acquisition process for GSA, client agencies, and the private sector. Process reform over the past 2 years has brought reform to GSA leasing by implementing a variety of enhancements and improvements to the methods by which GSA procures space. As a direct result of the reform, five new lease contract models have been developed that are targeted to meet the needs of the national leased portfolio. Four of the lease models require offerors to complete a GSA Form 1364. The new versions of GSA Form 1364 require the submission of information specifically aligned with the leasing models and avoid mandating submission of information that is not required for use in evaluation and award under each model. The Simplified Lease Model uses GSA Forms 1364A and 1364A–1. This model obtains a firm, fixed price for rent, which includes the cost of tenant improvement construction. Therefore, leases using the Simplified model do not include post-award tenant improvement cost information on the form. The 1364A includes rental rate components and cost data that becomes part of the lease contract and that is necessary to satisfy GSA pricing policy requirements. The 1364A–1 is a checklist that addresses technical requirements as referenced in the Request for Lease Proposals. The 1364A–1 is separate from the proposal itself and maintained in the lease file; it does not become an exhibit to the lease. The 1364A–1 may contain proprietary offeror information that cannot be released under the Freedom of Information Act. The Streamlined Lease Model uses GSA Form 1364B. The Streamlined Lease model is a unique model that was designed to support small to mid-size leases up to $500,000 average net annual rent and occupancies that fall under Interagency Security Committee Security Levels I, II, and III. The Streamlined Lease model is not used for projects requiring lease construction or leases employing the best value trade-off evaluation process. The Standard Lease Model, which relies on an allowance instead of firm fixed pricing for initial tenant improvements, uses GSA Form 1364C. E:\FR\FM\28MRN1.SGM 28MRN1 18982 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 60 / Thursday, March 28, 2013 / Notices The 1364C captures an offeror’s proposed interest rate and amortization period for the tenant improvements, in addition to the lessor’s overhead fees. The Succeeding and Superseding Lease Model uses GSA Form 1364D. These leases are negotiated with the existing lessor after advertisements and cost benefit analyses result in a determination that such a lease is in the best interests of the government. The form has less data input required than for a Standard lease; it also includes current rental rate information, supplied by the Government. The 1364A–1, 1364B, and 1364C summarize an offeror’s technical compliance with some important statutory and regulatory requirements to make the overall offer process easier for offerors to understand (e.g., accessibility and seismic standards, flood plain compliance, asbestos). The 1364C also limits the collection of tenant improvement overhead fees to the architect/engineering fees and lessor’s project management fees.

Abstract: The Office of Women’s Health (OWH) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Coordinating Committee on Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender (LGBT) Issues have prioritized the collection of health data on LGBT populations. In response, OWH funded an initiative to identify and test effective and innovative ways of reducing obesity in lesbian and bisexual women. The DIFO intervention has been developed in San Francisco to address what is known about local LB women’s community norms, common barriers to health, patterns of physical and mental health access, and preferences for health services and health outcomes. The evaluation of the DIFO program will address the following research question: Does an intervention based on an ecological model of LB women’s health result in improved health, as defined by: quality of life, decreased weight, improved nutrition, and increased physical activity? The project is scheduled for one year. E:\FR\FM\28MRN1.SGM 28MRN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    The General Services Administration (GSA) has various mission 
responsibilities related to the acquisition and provision of real 
property management, and disposal of real and personal property. These 
mission responsibilities generate requirements that are realized 
through the solicitation and award of leasing contracts. Individual 
solicitations and resulting contracts may impose unique information 
collection/reporting requirements on contractors, not required by 
regulation, but necessary to (1) evaluate whether the physical 
attributes of offered properties meet the Government's requirements and 
(2) compare the owner/offeror's price proposal against competing 
offers.
    These Form 1364 versions are products of a GSA Lease Reform 
Initiative to improve the lease acquisition process for GSA, client 
agencies, and the private sector. Process reform over the past 2 years 
has brought reform to GSA leasing by implementing a variety of 
enhancements and improvements to the methods by which GSA procures 
space. As a direct result of the reform, five new lease contract models 
have been developed that are targeted to meet the needs of the national 
leased portfolio. Four of the lease models require offerors to complete 
a GSA Form 1364. The new versions of GSA Form 1364 require the 
submission of information specifically aligned with the leasing models 
and avoid mandating submission of information that is not required for 
use in evaluation and award under each model.
    The Simplified Lease Model uses GSA Forms 1364A and 1364A-1. This 
model obtains a firm, fixed price for rent, which includes the cost of 
tenant improvement construction. Therefore, leases using the Simplified 
model do not include post-award tenant improvement cost information on 
the form. The 1364A includes rental rate components and cost data that 
becomes part of the lease contract and that is necessary to satisfy GSA 
pricing policy requirements.
    The 1364A-1 is a checklist that addresses technical requirements as 
referenced in the Request for Lease Proposals. The 1364A-1 is separate 
from the proposal itself and maintained in the lease file; it does not 
become an exhibit to the lease. The 1364A-1 may contain proprietary 
offeror information that cannot be released under the Freedom of 
Information Act.
    The Streamlined Lease Model uses GSA Form 1364B. The Streamlined 
Lease model is a unique model that was designed to support small to 
mid-size leases up to $500,000 average net annual rent and occupancies 
that fall under Interagency Security Committee Security Levels I, II, 
and III. The Streamlined Lease model is not used for projects requiring 
lease construction or leases employing the best value trade-off 
evaluation process.
    The Standard Lease Model, which relies on an allowance instead of 
firm fixed pricing for initial tenant improvements, uses GSA Form 
1364C.

[[Page 18982]]

The 1364C captures an offeror's proposed interest rate and amortization 
period for the tenant improvements, in addition to the lessor's 
overhead fees.
    The Succeeding and Superseding Lease Model uses GSA Form 1364D. 
These leases are negotiated with the existing lessor after 
advertisements and cost benefit analyses result in a determination that 
such a lease is in the best interests of the government. The form has 
less data input required than for a Standard lease; it also includes 
current rental rate information, supplied by the Government.
    The 1364A-1, 1364B, and 1364C summarize an offeror's technical 
compliance with some important statutory and regulatory requirements to 
make the overall offer process easier for offerors to understand (e.g., 
accessibility and seismic standards, flood plain compliance, asbestos). 
The 1364C also limits the collection of tenant improvement overhead 
fees to the architect/engineering fees and lessor's project management 
fees. A notice was published in the Federal Register at 78 FR 303, on 
January 3, 2013. No comments were received.
