GSA Questioning Transactional Data Rule Program

Facing industry criticism, the General Services Administration has begun to consider whether to do away with their Transactional Data Rule program, launched in an effort to stream-line requirements for commercial vendors in the transactional data reporting process.

Industry complaints have are based on numerous reports from schedule contractors, finding themselves still being required by contracting officers to provide detailed reports where the program had removed steep record-keeping requirements.

Although, GSA initially defended the program in the face of mounting criticism, they are signaling that they may be reconsidering.

"We're getting very close to getting to the decision to remove that requirement," Kevin Youel Page, deputy commissioner of GSA's Federal Acquisition Service publicly stated.

"We think we've got such good voluntary participation, we would like to keep the pilot voluntary," Page added. 

GSA launched the pilot in compliance with a final rule on the TDR process the agency released in June 2016 that seeks to eliminate commercial sales practices disclosure and price reduction clause requirements for contractors.
