This includes orders placed against both Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) contract vehicles and GSA’s non-FSS contract vehicles, Governmentwide Acquisition VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:57 Jun 17, 2015 Jkt 235001 Contracts (GWACs) and Multi-Agency Contracts (MACs). The proposed amendment to the GSAR will add an alternate version of the existing GSAR clause 552.238–74 Industrial Funding Fee and Sales Reporting (IFF) (Federal Supply Schedule) and a new GSAR clause 552.216–75 Sales Reporting and Fee Remittance. Both clauses include the new reporting requirement. Under the FSS program, vendors that agree to the new transactional reporting requirement will have their contracts modified with an alternate version of clause 552.238–75 Price Reductions; the alternate version of clause 552.238–75 does not require the vendor to monitor and provide price reductions to the Government when the customer or category of customer upon which the contract was predicated receives a discount. GSA will implement the new transactional data reporting PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4702 3090–AJ43 requirements in phases, beginning with specific contract vehicles, including a few select Federal Supply Schedules, or Special Item Numbers that show the greatest potential to optimize transactional data via category management and reduced price variability. GSA will engage stakeholders throughout the phases of the implementation. Once implemented, the new GSAR transactional data reporting clauses will enable GSA to provide Federal agencies with further market intelligence and expert guidance in procuring goods and services in each category of GSA acquisition vehicles. The new requirement will not affect the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) FSS contract holders. GSA is interested in conducting a dialogue with industry and interested parties in Government about the E:\FR\FM\18JNP15.SGM 18JNP15 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 117 / Thursday, June 18, 2015 / Unified Agenda proposed change.

Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions

AGENCY: General Services Administration (GSA).

ACTION: Semiannual Regulatory Agenda.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This agenda announces the proposed regulatory actions that GSA 
plans for the next 12 months and those that were completed since the 
fall 2014 edition. This agenda was developed under the guidelines of 
Executive Order 12866 ``Regulatory Planning and Review.'' GSA's purpose 
in publishing this agenda is to allow interested persons an opportunity 
to participate in the rulemaking process. GSA also invites interested 
persons to recommend existing significant regulations for review to 
determine whether they should be modified or eliminated. Proposed rules 
may be reviewed in their entirety at the Government's rulemaking Web 
site at http://www.regulations.gov.
    Since the fall 2007 edition, the Internet has been the basic means 
for disseminating the Unified Agenda. The complete Unified Agenda will 
be available online at www.reginfo.gov, in a format that offers users a 
greatly enhanced ability to obtain information from the Agenda 
database.
    Because publication in the Federal Register is mandated for the 
regulatory flexibility agendas required by the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act (5 U.S.C. 602), GSA's printed agenda entries include only:
    (1) Rules that are in the Agency's regulatory flexibility agenda, 
in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, because they are 
likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities; and
    (2) Any rules that the Agency has identified for periodic review 
under section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    Printing of these entries is limited to fields that contain 
information required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act's Agenda 
requirements. Additional information on these entries is available in 
the Unified Agenda published on the Internet. In addition, for fall 
editions of the Agenda, the entire Regulatory Plan will continue to be 
printed in the Federal Register, as in past years, including GSA's 
regulatory plan.

217. General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR); 
GSAR Case 2013-G504, Transactional Data Reporting

    Legal Authority: 40 U.S.C. 121(c)
    Abstract: The General Services Administration (GSA) announced a 
public meeting and request for comment on its proposal to amend the 
General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to 
require vendors to report transactional data from orders and prices 
paid by ordering activities. This includes orders placed against both 
Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) contract vehicles and GSA's non-FSS 
contract vehicles, Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs) and 
Multi-Agency Contracts (MACs). The proposed amendment to the GSAR will 
add an alternate version of the existing GSAR clause 552.238-74 
Industrial Funding Fee and Sales Reporting (IFF) (Federal Supply 
Schedule) and a new GSAR clause 552.216-75 Sales Reporting and Fee 
Remittance. Both clauses include the new reporting requirement. Under 
the FSS program, vendors that agree to the new transactional reporting 
requirement will have their contracts modified with an alternate 
version of clause 552.238-75 Price Reductions; the alternate version of 
clause 552.238-75 does not require the vendor to monitor and provide 
price reductions to the Government when the customer or category of 
customer upon which the contract was predicated receives a discount. 
GSA will implement the new transactional data reporting requirements in 
phases, beginning with specific contract vehicles, including a few 
select Federal Supply Schedules, or Special Item Numbers that show the 
greatest potential to optimize transactional data via category 
management and reduced price variability. GSA will engage stakeholders 
throughout the phases of the implementation.
    Once implemented, the new GSAR transactional data reporting clauses 
will enable GSA to provide Federal agencies with further market 
intelligence and expert guidance in procuring goods and services in 
each category of GSA acquisition vehicles. The new requirement will not 
affect the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) FSS contract holders.
    GSA is interested in conducting a dialogue with industry and 
interested parties in Government about the

proposed change. GSA is seeking feedback on potential impacts to agency 
customers and contractors alike. Feedback will be used to help inform 
the development of regulations and other guidance to implement the 
proposed clauses, provisions, and prescriptions. This case is included 
in GSA's retrospective review of existing regulations under Executive 
Order 13563. Additional information is located in GSA's retrospective
