GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION

[Notice-MA-2018-11; Docket No. 2018-0002; Sequence 34]


Rescission of FMR Bulletin

AGENCY: Office of Government-wide Policy (OGP); General Services 
Administration, (GSA).

ACTION: Notice of Rescission of GSA Bulletin Federal Management 
Reguation (FMR) D-1, Transportation Management.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: GSA has determined the guidance for requesting a delegation of 
authority for the procurement of transportation (freight and cargo, 
including household goods) and traffic management services from the 
Administrator of General Services to be administratively burdensome and 
ineffective. Therefore, GSA is officially rescinding GSA Bulletin FMR 
D-1, Transportation Management. Agencies that seek to request a 
transportation delegation of authority in the future must contact GSA-
OGP Office of Asset and Transportation Management for instructions on 
how to make this request.

DATES: December 5, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For clarification of content or 
information regarding a request for a delegation of authority, please 
contact Mr. Ron Siegel, Office of Government-wide Policy, Office of 
Asset and Transportation Management, at 202-702-0840, or by email at 
gsa-ogp-transportationpolicy@gsa.gov. Please cite Notice for Rescission 
of FMR Bulletin D-1 in the subject line.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Order 13777, Enforcing the 
Regulatory Reform Agenda, Section 3, paragraph (d)(ii), states in part, 
the Regulatory Reform Task Force shall attempt to identify regulations 
that are outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective. Upon review, GSA has 
identified GSA Bulletin FMR D-1, Transportation Management, as unduly 
prescriptive and ineffective. Furthermore, the bulletin potentially 
impacts the category management strategy for procurement.

    Dated: November 29, 2018.
Jessica Salmoiraghi,
Associate Administrator, Office of Government-wide Policy.
