SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In January 2018, the Federal Personal 
Property Management Act (FPPMA), Public Law 115-419, was enacted 
requiring agencies to regularly assess certain types of personal 
property under their control in accordance with guidance from GSA. 
Subsequently, on December 20, 2019, GAO published its final report GAO-
20-228, ``Federal Property: GSA Guidance Needed to Help Agencies 
Identify Unneeded Property in Warehouses.'' The report concluded, in 
part, ``with the recent enactment of FPPMA, an opportunity exists for 
GSA to develop and communicate guidance to help agencies assess 
property utilization and identify unneeded property in warehouses more 
efficiently that includes practices GSA identifies as being useful.'' 
The report concluded that the Administrator of General Services should 
``direct the Office of Government-wide Policy (1) to incorporate into 
its guidance approaches or practices that agencies could use to assess 
utilization of and the ongoing need for property--approaches such as 
recommendations for periodic justifications, data analytics, and 
utilization reviews--and (2) to develop a plan and timelines for 
communicating the guidance to agencies government-wide.'' To address 
these recommendations, in part, GSA established a working group of 
Federal and industry personal property management experts. GSA is 
soliciting input from the public to inform GSA and the working group of 
existing methodologies to effectively identify excess personal 
property.
    Although GSA may not respond to each individual comment, GSA may 
follow-up with respondents to clarify input. GSA values public feedback
