General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation; GSAR Case 
2008-G503, Rewrite of GSAR Part 505, Publicizing Contract Actions

AGENCIES: Office of Acquisition Policy, General Services Administration 

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: The General Services Administration (GSA) is issuing a final 
rule amending GSA Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) which provides 
requirements for publicizing contract actions.

DATES: Effective Date: June 10, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For clarification of content, contact 
Beverly Cromer, Procurement Analyst, at (202) 501-1448. For information 
pertaining to status or publication schedules, contact the Regulatory

A. Background

    The GSA published a proposed rule, with request for comments, in 
the Federal Register at 73 FR 53404 on September 16, 2008. No comments 
were received in response to the proposed rule. This rule covers the 
GSAR portion of part 505. Currently, subparts 505.1, 505.2, and 505.5 
are identified as ``shaded'' for regulatory coverage; however, the 
agency has deemed, these subparts as non-regulatory because the 
coverage addresses internal agency acquisition policy. These subparts 
have been revised and are moved to the non-regulatory portion of the 
GSA Acquisition Manual (GSAM).
    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 revisions are not considered 

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.

List of Subjects in 48 CFR Part 505

Acting Senior Procurement Executive, Office of Acquisition Policy, 
General Services Administration.

Therefore, under the authority of 40 U.S.C. 121(c), GSA removes and 
reserves 48 CFR part 505.
