General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation; GSAR Case 
2006-G518; Rewrite of GSAR Part 547, Transportation

AGENCIES: General Services Administration (GSA), Office of the Chief 
Acquisition Officer.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: The General Services Administration (GSA) is amending the 
General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) by 
deleting and reserving Part 547, Transportation.

DATES: Effective Date: June 29, 2009

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For clarification of content, contact 
Jeritta Parnell, Procurement Analyst, at (202) 501-4082. For 
information pertaining to status or publication schedules, contact the 
Regulatory Secretariat (VPR), Room 4041, GS Building, Washington, DC, 
20405, (202) 501-4755. Please cite Amendment 2009-06, GSAR case 2008-
G518 (Change 34).


A. Background

    GSA published a proposed rule, with request for comments, in the 
Federal Register at 73 FR 32277 on June 6, 2008. No comments were 
received in response to the proposed rule. Therefore, the proposed rule 
is converted to final with no change. The information contained in 
Subpart 547.3--Transportation in Supply Contracts, sections 547.300, 
547.303, 547.304, 547.305, and 547.370, is being deleted. In addition, 
clauses 552.247-70, Placarding Railcar Shipments, and 552.247-71, 
Diversion of Shipment Under f.o.b. Destination Contracts, are being 
deleted from 552.547.
    This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not 
subject to review under Section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, 
Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is 
not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The General Services Administration certifies that this final rule 
will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 
U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the rule deletes information and clauses 
that are deemed unnecessary and therefore, has no impact.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes to 
the GSAR do not impose recordkeeping or information collection 
requirements, or otherwise collect information from offerors, 
contractors, or members of the public that require approval of the 
Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, et seq.
