On September 9, 2016, the GSA issued a proposed rule to clarify, update and incorporate existing construction contract administration procedures. (Previously, the Public Building Service, the GSA's largest operating unit, issued construction contract administration guidance.) The proposed rule would incorporate this preexisting guidance into the GSA’s Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) by adding five new agency-unique provisions and corresponding clauses. The proposed rule would also help GSA maintain consistency between the GSAR and the FAR. It would accomplish this goal by adding supplemental clauses or revising the language of existing clauses to include the same requirements as the corresponding FAR clauses. Interested parties should submit written comments on or before November 8, 2016. (81 Fed. Reg. 62,434, 09/09/16)
