General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR); Transactional Data Reporting
Document Number: 2016-14728
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-06-23
Agency: General Services Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The General Services Administration (GSA) is amending the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to include clauses that require vendors to report transactional data from orders placed against certain Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) contracts, Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs), and Governmentwide Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contracts. Transactional data refers to the information generated when the Government purchases goods or services from a vendor. It includes specific details such as descriptions, part numbers, quantities, and prices paid for the items purchased. GSA has experimented with collecting transactional data through some of its contracts and found it instrumental for improving competition, lowering pricing, and increasing transparency. Accordingly, GSA will now test these principles on a broader base of its contracting programs. This move supports the Government's shift towards category management by allowing it to centrally analyze what it buys and how much it pays, and thereby identify the most efficient solutions, channels, and sources to meet its mission critical needs. GSA will introduce a new Transactional Data Reporting clause to its FSS contracts in phases, beginning with a pilot for select Schedules and Special Item Numbers. Participating vendors will no longer be subject to the existing requirements for Commercial Sales Practices (CSP) disclosures and Price Reductions clause (PRC) basis of award monitoring, resulting in a substantial burden reduction. Stakeholders have identified the CSP and PRC requirements as some of the most burdensome under the Schedules program. These actions represent the most significant change to the Schedules program in the past two decades. GSA has also created a Transactional Data Reporting clause for all new GWACs and Governmentwide IDIQ contracts and may apply the clause to any existing contracts in this class that do not contain other transactional data requirements.

General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation; Submission for OMB Review; Proposal to Lease Space, GSA Form 1364 and Lessor's Annual Cost Statement, GSA Form 1217
Document Number: 2016-11493
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-05-16
Agency: General Services Administration, Agencies and Commissions
Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, the Regulatory Secretariat Division will be submitting to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request to review and approve an extension of a previously approved information collection requirement for Proposal to Lease Space, GSA Form 1364 and Lessor's Annual Cost Statement, GSA Form 1217. The approval requested includes four versions of the GSA Form 1364; GSA Forms 1364, 1364A, 1364A-1, and 1364WH. These forms are used to obtain information for offer evaluation and lease award purposes regarding property being offered for lease to house Federal agencies. This includes financial aspects of offers for analysis and negotiation, such as real estate taxes, adjustments for vacant space, and offeror construction overhead fees. A notice was published in the Federal Register at 81 FR 10623 on March 1, 2016. No comments were received. A total of six lease contract models have been developed to meet the needs of the national leased portfolio. Five of the lease models require offerors to complete a GSA Form 1364 and four require a GSA Form 1217. The GSA Form 1364 versions requires the submission of information specifically aligned with certain leasing models and avoids mandating submission of information that is not required for use in evaluation and award under each model. The GSA Form 1217 requires the submission of information specific to the services and utilities of a building in support of the pricing detailed under GSA Form 1364. The forms relate to individual lease procurements and no duplication exists. Three lease models, Streamlined, Standard, and Succeeding/ Superseding, use GSA Form 1364. The 1364 captures all rental components, including the pricing for the initial tenant improvements. The global nature of the 1364 provides flexibility in capturing tenant improvement pricing based on either allowance or turnkey pricing, as required by the solicitation. The Simplified Lease Model uses GSA Forms 1364A and 1364A-1. This model obtains a firm, fixed price for rent, which includes the cost of tenant improvement construction. Therefore, leases using the Simplified model do not include post-award tenant improvement cost information on the form. The 1364A includes rental rate components and cost data that becomes part of the lease contract and that is necessary to satisfy GSA pricing policy requirements. The 1364A-1 is a checklist that addresses technical requirements as referenced in the Request for Lease Proposals. The 1364A-1 is separate from the proposal itself and is maintained in the lease file; it does not become an exhibit to the lease. The 1364A-1 may contain proprietary offeror information that cannot be released under the Freedom of Information Act. The Warehouse Lease Model uses GSA Form 1364WH. This model is specifically designed to accommodate the special characteristics of warehouse space and is optimized for space whose predominant use is for storage, distribution, or manufacturing. The 1364WH captures building characteristics unique to warehouse facilities and allows for evaluation of offers based on either area or volume calculations. The Streamlined, Standard, Succeeding/Superseding, and Warehouse Lease Models use GSA Form 1217. GSA Form 1217 captures the estimated annual cost of services and utilities and the estimated costs of ownership, exclusive of capital charges. These costs are listed for both the entire building and the area proposed for lease to the Government, broken down into specific categories. The GSA Form 1217 was not included in the previous information collection notice and supporting statement. The previous omission was an error that is corrected by inclusion in this information collection request.
