GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION

41 CFR Part 101-38

[FPMR Amendment G-106]

 

Passenger Sedan/Station Wagon Replacement Standards

AGENCY: Federal Supply Service, GSA.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This regulation updates minimum replacement standards for 
sedans and station wagons for executive agencies. These standards were 
initially published in Federal Property Management Regulations 
Temporary Regulation G-55 on January 28, 1992. GSA has decided to make 
these minimum replacement standards permanent. This amendment will 
codify replacement standards of 3 years and 60,000 miles for sedans and 
station wagons for executive agencies.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 1993.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael W. Moses, Fleet Management 
Division, 703-305-6272.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The General Services Administration (GSA) 
has determined that this is not a major rule for the purposes of 
Executive Order 12291 of February 17, 1981, because it is not likely to 
result in an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more; a 
major increase in costs to consumers or others; or significant adverse 
effects. GSA has based all administrative decisions underlying this 
rule on adequate information concerning the need for and consequences 
of this rule; has determined that the potential benefits to society 
from this rule outweigh the potential costs and has maximized the net 
benefits; and has chosen the alternative approach involving the least 
net cost to society.
    FPMR Temporary Regulation G-55 established a minimum replacement 
standard of 3 years or 60,000 miles for passenger sedans and station 
wagons instead of the 6 years or 60,000 miles replacement standard 
contained in 41 CFR 101-38.402(a) for such vehicles. The regulation 
allowed all executive agencies the option to replace their passenger 
sedans and station wagons on a more timely basis if they deemed it to 
be in their best interest and cost beneficial.
    GSA originally intended to publish a supplement to FPMR Temp. Reg. 
G-55 extending the expiration date until June 30, 1994. GSA has 
reconsidered its earlier decision and decided to codify the regulation, 
making the replacement standards in G-55 permanent.
