New GSA Sales Reporting Rule Eliminates Onerous Price Reductions Clause and Commercial Sales Practices Disclosure Requirements for Participating Contractors
23 June 2016
On June 23, 2016, GSA published a much anticipated final rule that amends the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to implement new transactional data reporting requirements in certain GSA contracts. 81 Fed. Reg. 41104 (June 23, 2016), available here. In addition, the rule eliminates the Price Reductions Clause (PRC) reporting and Commercial Sales Practices (CSP) disclosure requirements for Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) contracts that are subject to the new reporting requirements. The rule currently is limited to GSA contracts and does not extend to Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) FSS contracts. This final rule becomes effective on June 23, 2016.
