By incorporating these requirements into the GSAR, the GSAR will provide centralized guidance to ensure consistent application across the organization.

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). Contract requirements for internal information systems, external contractor systems, cloud systems, and mobile systems will be covered by this rule. This rule 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.

Legal Authority: 42 U.S.C. 4370m(6)(A) Abstract: Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST–41) is intended to improve the timeliness, predictability, and transparency of the Federal environmental review and authorization process for certain covered infrastructure projects across a broad range of sectors. It does so while upholding the U.S. Government’s PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4702 responsibility to protect public health, welfare, safety, and the environment. While FAST–41 contains a list of sectors whose infrastructure projects are eligible for inclusion, the Act specifically allows for the addition of other sectors as determined by the majority vote of the Federal Permitting Improvement Steering Council (FPISC or the Council). Pursuant to that authority, and consistent with Executive Orders 13807 and 13817, the Council is proposing to include mining as a sector eligible under the definition of a FAST– 41 covered project. Similar to other listed sectors, mining activities routinely include construction of a variety of infrastructure projects, such as roads, electricity generation/ transmission, pipelines, and wastewater treatment facilities. To continue with the enhanced transparency inherent in FAST–41, the Council is requesting public comment on the addition of mining as a covered sector under the Act. Inclusion of mining as a covered sector will not guarantee that all mining projects will receive the benefits of enhanced coordination under FAST–41. Identical to the treatment of other sectors, individual mining project sponsors will have to be approved by FPISC. Timetable: Action NPRM .................. NPRM Comment Period End.

Orders (E.O.) 12866 ``Regulatory Planning and Review,'' as amended, 
Executive Order 13771 ``Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory 
Costs,'' and Executive Order 13563 ``Improving Regulation and 
Regulatory Review.'' GSA's purpose in publishing this agenda is to 
allow interested persons an opportunity to participate in the 
rulemaking process.
    This agenda updates the report published on June 24, 2019, and 
includes regulations expected to be issued and under review over the 
next 12 months. The next agenda is scheduled to be published in the 
spring of 2020.
    The complete Unified Agenda will be available online at 
www.reginfo.gov.
    Because publication in the Federal Register is mandated for the

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

Proposed Rule Stage

333. General Services Acquisition Regulation (GSAR); GSAR Case 2016-
G511, Contract Requirements for GSA Information Systems

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Other.
    Legal Authority: 40 U.S.C. 121(c)
    Abstract: The General Services Administration (GSA) is proposing to 
amend the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) 
to streamline and update requirements for contracts that involve GSA 
information systems. GSA's unique policies on cybersecurity and other 
information technology requirements have been previously communicated 
through other means. By incorporating these requirements into the GSAR, 
the GSAR will provide centralized guidance to ensure consistent 
application across the organization. Integrating these requirements 
into the GSAR will also allow industry to provide public comments 
through the rulemaking process.
    GSA's cybersecurity requirements mandate contractors to 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).
    Contract requirements for internal information systems, external 
contractor systems, cloud systems, and mobile systems will be covered 
by this rule. This rule 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.

335.  Federal Permitting Improvement Steering Council (FPISC); 
FPISC Case 2019-001, Adding a New Sector of Covered Projects Under 
Fast-41 by the Federal Permitting Improvement Steering Council

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Regulatory.
    Legal Authority: 42 U.S.C. 4370m(6)(A)
    Abstract: Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST-41) is 
intended to improve the timeliness, predictability, and transparency of 
the Federal environmental review and authorization process for certain 
covered infrastructure projects across a broad range of sectors. It 
does so while upholding the U.S. Government's responsibility to protect 
public health, welfare, safety, and the environment. While FAST-41 
contains a list of sectors whose infrastructure projects are eligible 
for inclusion, the Act specifically allows for the addition of other 
sectors as determined by the majority vote of the Federal Permitting 
Improvement Steering Council (FPISC or the Council). Pursuant to that 
authority, and consistent with Executive Orders 13807 and 13817, the 
Council is proposing to include mining as a sector eligible under the 
definition of a FAST-41 covered project. Similar to other listed 
sectors, mining activities routinely include construction of a variety 
of infrastructure projects, such as roads, electricity generation/
transmission, pipelines, and wastewater treatment facilities. To 
continue with the enhanced transparency inherent in FAST-41, the 
Council is requesting public comment on the addition of mining as a 
covered sector under the Act. Inclusion of mining as a covered sector 
will not guarantee that all mining projects will receive the benefits 
of enhanced coordination under FAST-41. Identical to the treatment of 
other sectors, individual mining project sponsors will have to be 
approved by FPISC.

GSAR Case 2015-G506, Adoption of Construction Project Delivery Method 
Involving Early Industry Engagement

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Deregulatory.
    Legal Authority: 40 U.S.C. 121(c)
    Abstract: The General Services Administration (GSA) is amending the

[[Page 71200]]

General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to adopt 
an additional project delivery method for construction, construction 
manager as constructor (CMc). 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 provides centralized guidance to ensure 
consistent application of construction project principles across the 
organization.
