SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    GSA has Governmentwide oversight and management responsibilities 
for the Exchange/Sale and Non-Federal Recipient Reports. GSA's 
responsibilities include issuing appropriate regulations and monitoring 
agency adherence to the regulations through these reports.
    On December 20, 2019, GAO publicly released its report GAO-20-101, 
``FEDERAL PROPERTY: Improved Monitoring, Oversight, and Data Would Help 
Understand Effects of Providing Property to Non-Federal Recipients.'' 
The report recommended that ``the GSA Administrator should direct the 
Office of Government-wide Policy to document in what circumstances 
excess property loaned to non-federal recipients should be reported and 
what property GSA is reporting on behalf of agencies, for example, by 
updating GSA guidance.'' To address this recommendation, this bulletin 
is being issued to clarify the requirements to annually submit to GSA a 
report on personal property furnished within the United States to non-
Federal recipients and a report on property exchanged or sold for 
replacement purposes. This bulletin also provides updated guidance on 
reporting loans to non-Federal recipients and clarifies what property 
GSA is reporting on behalf of agencies. This Bulletin supersedes and 
cancels GSA Bulletin FMR B-27. GSA Bulletin FMR B-51 is available at 
www.gsa.gov/reference/gsa-bulletins.

    Authority: 40 U.S.C. 503 and 529.
