New GSA Schedules Proposed Rule
On July 7th, GSA requested input on the public release of the data collected through transactional data reporting.
Last month, the General Services Administration (GSA) finalized a new reporting requirement for federal contractors. The new policy, called the “transactional data rule” will require contractors that sell to the government through GSA contracts, including Federal Supply Schedules (FSS) and Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs), to report transaction or task order level data on goods and services. More information about the rule can be found here.
GSA plans on making some of the transaction level data publicly available, which will allow contractors to better identify business development strategies and competitive pricing. In this request for comments, GSA is seeking input on which elements of transactional data reporting should be released to the general public. Public comments can be submitted through August 29th.If you have interest in commenting or if you are concerned about this proposal, please let us know.
