GSA Seeks Input on Acquisition Regulations, Including the Alphabet Soup of TDR, PRC, and CSP

May 30, 2017

In accordance with President Trump’s continuing mandate to streamline federal regulations, GSA is seeking input on its acquisition regulations, policies, and guidance that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement, or modification. GSA is particularly interested in comments on less frequently addressed areas such as evergreen contracting, price adjustments, catalogs, utilities, construction, and facilities. However, GSA is also welcoming comments on bigger ticket items such as the recent Transactional Data Reporting (TDR) rule, the Price Reduction Clause (PRC), and the Commercial Sales Practice (CSP) format. Comments are due in late July, and will provide interested parties an invaluable opportunity to address a broad swath of GSA’s existing policies and practices. Indeed, with recent indications that compliance with TDR requirements may soon become optional, this request for input appears very well timed to assist GSA in making important decisions for the Schedule program going forward.
