AGENCY: ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda. This agenda announces the proposed regulatory actions that GSA plans for the next 12 months and those that were completed since the fall 2017 edition. This agenda was developed under the guidelines of Executive Order 12866 ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review’’, as amended. GSA’s purpose in publishing this agenda is to allow interested persons an opportunity to SUMMARY: 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. Published proposed rules may be reviewed in their entirety at the Government’s rulemaking website 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.

General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR): GSAR Case 2015–G506, Adoption of Construction Project Delivery Method Involving Early Industry Engagement E.O. 13771 Designation: Other. Legal Authority: 40 U.S.C. 121(c) Abstract: GSA is proposing to amend the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to adopt an additional project delivery method for construction, construction manager as constructor (CMc). CMc is used in industry and allows for early industry engagement on construction contracts that provide schedule growth and administrative savings. The current FAR and GSAR lacks detailed coverage differentiating various construction project delivery methods. GSA’s policies on CMc have been previously issued through other means. By incorporating CMc into the GSAR and differentiating for various construction methods, the GSAR will provide centralized guidance to ensure consistent application of construction project principles across the organization. Integrating these requirements into the GSAR will also allow industry to provide public comments through the rulemaking process. Timetable: Action Date NPRM ..................

General Services Acquisition Regulation (GSAR); GSAR Case 2016– G511, Information and Information Systems Security E.O. 13771 Designation: Other. Legal Authority: 40 U.S.C. 121(c) Abstract: GSA is proposing to update the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to streamline and update existing GSA cybersecurity requirements and integrate these requirements within the GSAR. GSA unique policies on VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:19 Jun 08, 2018 Jkt 244001 cybersecurity have been previously issued through other means. By incorporating cybersecurity requirements into the GSAR, the GSAR will provide centralized guidance to ensure consistent application of cybersecurity principles across the organization. Integrating these requirements into the GSAR will also allow industry to provide public comments through the rulemaking process. The GSA cybersecurity requirements mandate contractors protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of unclassified GSA information and information systems from cybersecurity vulnerabilities, and threats in accordance with the Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014 and associated Federal cybersecurity requirements. This rule will require contracting officers to incorporate applicable GSA cybersecurity requirements within the statement of work to ensure compliance with Federal cybersecurity requirements and implement best practices for preventing cyber incidents. These GSA requirements mandate applicable controls and standards (e.g. U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology, U.S. National Archive and Records Administration Controlled Unclassified Information standards). Cybersecurity requirements for internal contractor systems, external contractor systems, cloud systems, and mobile systems will be covered by this rule. It will also update existing GSAR provision 552.239–70, Information Technology Security Plan and Security Authorization and GSAR clause 552.239–71, Security Requirements for Unclassified Information Technology Resources to only require the provision and clause when the contract will involve information or information systems connected to a GSA network.

General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR); GSAR Case 2016–G515, Cyber Incident Reporting E.O. 13771 Designation: Other. Legal Authority: 40 U.S.C. 121(c) Abstract: GSA is proposing to amend the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to provide requirements for GSA contractors to report cyber incidents that could potentially affect GSA or its customer agencies. The rule integrates the existing cyber incident reporting policy within GSA Order CIO 9297.2C, GSA Information Breach Notification Policy that did not previously go through the rulemaking process into the GSAR. By incorporating cyber incident reporting requirements into the GSAR, the GSAR will provide centralized guidance to ensure consistent application of cybersecurity principles across the organization. Integrating these requirements into the GSAR will also allow industry to provide public comments through the rulemaking process. The rule outlines the roles and responsibilities of the GSA contracting officer, contractors, and agencies ordering off of GSA’s contracts in the reporting of a cyber incident. The rule establishes a contractor’s responsibility to report any cyber incident where the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of GSA information or information systems are potentially compromised or where the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of information or information systems owned or managed by or on behalf of the U.S. Government is potentially compromised. It establishes an explicit timeframe for reporting cyber incidents, details the required elements of a cyber incident report, and provides the required Government’s points of contact for submitting the cyber incident report. The rule also outlines the additional contractor requirements that may apply for any cyber incidents involving personally identifiable information. In addition, the rule clarifies both GSA and ordering agencies’ authority to access contractor systems in the event of a cyber incident. It also establishes the role of GSA in the cyber incident reporting process and outlines how the primary response agency for a cyber incident is determined. In addition, it establishes the requirement for the contractor to preserve images of affected systems and ensure contractor employees receive appropriate training for reporting cyber incidents. The rule also outlines how contractor attributional/proprietary information E:\FR\FM\11JNP18.SGM 11JNP18 27208 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 112 / Monday, June 11, 2018 / Unified Agenda provided as part of the cyber incident reporting process will be protected and used.

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 2017 edition. This agenda was developed under the guidelines of 
Executive Order 12866 ``Regulatory Planning and Review'', as amended. 
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. Published proposed rules may be reviewed in their entirety 
at the Government's rulemaking website 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.

Proposed Rule Stage

182. General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR): 
GSAR Case 2015-G506, Adoption of Construction Project Delivery Method 
Involving Early Industry Engagement

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Other.
    Legal Authority: 40 U.S.C. 121(c)
    Abstract: GSA is proposing to amend the General Services 
Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to adopt an additional 
project delivery method for construction, construction manager as 
constructor (CMc). CMc is used in industry and allows for early 
industry engagement on construction contracts that provide schedule 
growth and administrative savings. The current FAR and GSAR lacks 
detailed coverage differentiating various construction project delivery 
methods. GSA's policies on CMc have been previously issued through 
other means. By incorporating CMc into the GSAR and differentiating for 
various construction methods, the GSAR will provide centralized 
guidance to ensure consistent application of construction project 
principles across the organization. Integrating these requirements into 
the GSAR will also allow industry to provide public comments through 
the rulemaking process.

183. General Services Acquisition Regulation (GSAR); GSAR Case 2016-
G511, Information and Information Systems Security

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Other.
    Legal Authority: 40 U.S.C. 121(c)
    Abstract: GSA is proposing to update the General Services 
Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to streamline and update 
existing GSA cybersecurity requirements and integrate these 
requirements within the GSAR. GSA unique policies on cybersecurity have 
been previously issued through other means. By incorporating 
cybersecurity requirements into the GSAR, the GSAR will provide 
centralized guidance to ensure consistent application of cybersecurity 
principles across the organization. Integrating these requirements into 
the GSAR will also allow industry to provide public comments through 
the rulemaking process.
    The GSA cybersecurity requirements mandate contractors protect the 
confidentiality, integrity, and availability of unclassified GSA 
information and information systems from cybersecurity vulnerabilities, 
and threats in accordance with the Federal Information Security 
Modernization Act of 2014 and associated Federal cybersecurity 
requirements. This rule will require contracting officers to 
incorporate applicable GSA cybersecurity requirements within the 
statement of work to ensure compliance with Federal cybersecurity 
requirements and implement best practices for preventing cyber 
incidents. These GSA requirements mandate applicable controls and 
standards (e.g. U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology, 
U.S. National Archive and Records Administration Controlled 
Unclassified Information standards).
    Cybersecurity requirements for internal contractor systems, 
external contractor systems, cloud systems, and mobile systems will be 
covered by this rule. It will also update existing GSAR provision 
552.239-70, Information Technology Security Plan and Security 
Authorization and GSAR clause 552.239-71, Security Requirements for 
Unclassified Information Technology Resources to only require the 
provision and clause when the contract will involve information or 
information systems connected to a GSA network.

184. General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR); 
GSAR Case 2016-G515, Cyber Incident Reporting

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Other.
    Legal Authority: 40 U.S.C. 121(c)
    Abstract: GSA is proposing to amend the General Services 
Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to provide requirements 
for GSA contractors to report cyber incidents that could potentially 
affect GSA or its customer agencies. The rule integrates the existing 
cyber incident reporting policy within GSA Order CIO 9297.2C, GSA 
Information Breach Notification Policy that did not previously go 
through the rulemaking process into the GSAR. By incorporating cyber 
incident reporting requirements into the GSAR, the GSAR will provide 
centralized guidance to ensure consistent application of cybersecurity 
principles across the organization. Integrating these requirements into 
the GSAR will also allow industry to provide public comments through 
the rulemaking process.
    The rule outlines the roles and responsibilities of the GSA 
contracting officer, contractors, and agencies ordering off of GSA's 
contracts in the reporting of a cyber incident.
    The rule establishes a contractor's responsibility to report any 
cyber incident where the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of 
GSA information or information systems are potentially compromised or 
where the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of information or 
information systems owned or managed by or on behalf of the U.S. 
Government is potentially compromised. It establishes an explicit 
timeframe for reporting cyber incidents, details the required elements 
of a cyber incident report, and provides the required Government's 
points of contact for submitting the cyber incident report.
    The rule also outlines the additional contractor requirements that 
may apply for any cyber incidents involving personally identifiable 
information. In addition, the rule clarifies both GSA and ordering 
agencies' authority to access contractor systems in the event of a 
cyber incident. It also establishes the role of GSA in the cyber 
incident reporting process and outlines how the primary response agency 
for a cyber incident is determined. In addition, it establishes the 
requirement for the contractor to preserve images of affected systems 
and ensure contractor employees receive appropriate training for 
reporting cyber incidents. The rule also outlines how contractor 
attributional/proprietary information

provided as part of the cyber incident reporting process will be 
protected and used.
