Federal Travel Regulation (FTR); Relocation Allowances--Data 
Dictionary and Collection Process for Transaction-Level Relocation 
Data; Notice of a Proposed Bulletin and Proposed Rule

AGENCY: Office of Governmentwide Policy, General Services 
Administration (GSA).

ACTION: Notice of a proposed bulletin and a proposed rule.


SUMMARY: This notice announces that GSA is posting online a proposed 
FTR bulletin on collection of relocation data, concurrent with a 
proposed rule. The proposed FTR Bulletin 10-XX provides the proposed 
data dictionary for both of these data collection processes. Proposed 
FTR Bulletin 10-XX may be viewed on GSA's Web site, at http://www.gsa.gov/relopolicy, and the proposed rule appears elsewhere in this 
issue of the Federal Register. By this Notice, GSA is seeking comment 
on the proposed bulletin. Among the questions for which GSA is seeking 
comment are:
     Have we identified the right data elements to allow 
managers to identify and modulate useful adjustments in policy and to 
identify and support proposed regulatory and legislative changes?
     Should any data elements be added or deleted?
     Have we described the data elements correctly, in the 
definitions, coding, field lengths, and suggested data sources?
    GSA is taking the somewhat unusual step of concurrently publishing 
the proposed FTR bulletin and proposed rule because GSA believes that 
the final products will be improved by comments from Federal agencies, 
relocation service companies, and relocation software providers.
    Once GSA has issued the FTR bulletin, GSA will modify it as needed. 
Modifications will be based on input from the industry and/or Federal 
agencies and will be discussed with the Executive Relocation Steering 
Committee (an interagency body chartered by GSA) before implementation.

DATES: GSA requests that Federal agencies and providers of relocation 
services and software comment on the proposed bulletin no later than 
December 21, 2009. This notice is effective October 21, 2009.
