GSA Bulletin FTR 14-04] Federal Travel Regulation (FTR); Relocation Allowances-Standard Mileage Rate for Moving Purposes
The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) published FTR Amendments 2007-03, June 27, 2007, and 2007-06, December 11, 2007, in the Federal Register (72 FR 35187 and 72 FR 70234 respectively) specifying that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Standard Mileage Rate for moving purposes would be the rate at which agencies will reimburse an employee for using a Privately Owned Vehicle (POV) for relocation worldwide. The amendment indicated that the change to the IRS Standard Mileage Rate for moving purposes applied to relocations on and after September 25, 2007, and that GSA would publish a bulletin announcing any changes to that rate made by the IRS thereafter. On December 6, 2013, the IRS announced that as of January 1, 2014, the relocation mileage rate would decrease to $0.235 per mile for the 12- month period ending on December 31, 2014. Thus, the reimbursement rate for POVs used in conjunction with official relocation will also be $0.235 for the same period. FTR Bulletin 14-04 is attached.

Modernizing the Federal Supply Schedule Program: Order-Level Materials
The Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) of the General Services Administration (GSA) is seeking comments that can be used to assist in the development of processes and procedures for the inclusion of order- level materials under the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) program. Though the acquisition of order-level materials is allowed under multiple- award Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contracts, FAS has yet to develop a clear mechanism for the procurement of these items under the FSS program. FAS is now taking steps to bring the FSS program into parity with other multiple-award IDIQ contract vehicles. This endeavor is a critical piece of a larger effort to modernize the FSS program as a whole, under which FAS aims to increase efficiency and effectiveness, facilitate the purchase of total solutions, maximize competition, and promote small business utilization across Government.
