In a Coalition member meeting on September 20, 2016, GSA shared its responses to more than 60 industry questions about the transactional data reporting (TDR) pilot and implementation. The Coalition appreciates the response and looks forward to continuing the dialogue with GSA about remaining areas for clarification. To view GSA’s responses, click here.
On August 19, the Coalition submitted comments to the General Services Administration (GSA) in response to the proposed rule, Federal Acquisition Regulation: Strategic Sourcing Documentation. The Coalition is concerned that, among other things, the proposed rule is unnecessarily duplicative and would have a significant economic impact on small businesses. Based on their findings, the Coalition made five recommendations for GSA.
On August 10, the Coalition sent a letter to the General Services Administration (GSA) with more than sixty questions from members regarding the Transactional Data Reporting (TDR) rule and pilot program. The Coalition requested that GSA respond to these critical concerns in writing, as well as through a series of “in-person” Industry Days prior to the launch of the TDR pilot. Coalition members report that, if unaddressed, these issues would hinder their ability to participate in the voluntary TDR pilot.
