DATES: Effective: January 13, 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. James Tsujimoto, Procurement 
Analyst, at 202-208-3585, or email at james.tsujimoto@gsa.gov for

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Discussion of Changes

    The General Services Administration (GSA) is amending the General 
Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to move the 
definitions from the regulatory GSAR to the non-regulatory General 
Services Acquisition Manual (GSAM). The definitions listed in GSAR 
section 502.101 pertain to internal operations only and not the general 
public. Thus, the definitions belong in the non-regulatory GSAM.

II. Public Comments Not Required

    41 U.S.C. 1707, Publication of proposed regulations, applies to the 
publication of the General Services Administration Acquisition 
Regulation. Paragraph (a)(1) of the statute requires that a procurement 
policy, regulation, procedure, or form (including amendment or 
modification thereof) must be published for public comment if it has 
either a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of 
the agency issuing the policy, regulation, procedure, or form, or has a 
significant cost or administrative impact on contractors or offerors. 
This final rule is not required to be published for public comment 
because the definitions affect internal operations only. The change is 
solely within the discretion of the agency and has no impact on the 
public.

III. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Orders (E.O.s) 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess 
all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives; and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). E.O. 
13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, 
of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. 
This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not 
subject to review under Section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning 
and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule 
under 5 U.S.C. 804.

IV. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply to this rule because 
this final rule does not constitute a significant GSAR revision and 41 
U.S.C. 1707 does not require publication for public comment.

V. Paperwork Reduction Act

    This final rule does not contain any information collection that 
requires additional approval of the Office of Management and Budget 
under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
