DATE: February 17, 2000

FROM: Barry McVay, CPCM

SUBJECT: Federal Supply Service; Move Management Services (MMS) and GSA's Centralized Household Goods Traffic Management Program (CHAMP)

SOURCE: Federal Register, February 17, 2000, Vol. 65, No. 33, page 8149

AGENCIES: Federal Supply Service, General Services Administration (GSA)

ACTION: Notice

SUMMARY: This notice announces changes GSA has made to the MMS statement of work (SOW) as a result of comments received on its revised draft MMS SOW.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Larry Tucker, Senior Program Analyst, Transportation Management Division, FSS/GSA, 703-305-5745.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 2, 1999, GSA solicited comments on the SOW to be used in transitioning licensed-broker-provided MMS from CHAMP to the Governmentwide Employee Relocation Services Schedule as a separate line item. The transition is necessary to comply with 49 U.S.C. 13712. GSA reviewed the comments received and met with customers and household goods industry representatives to determine how best to accommodate the affected parties. Based on the comments and meetings, GSA revised the SOW and posted it for comment on the Electronic Posting Service (EPS) on December 13, 1999. As a result of the comments received in response to the EPS posting, GSA is making the following changes to the MMS SOW:

GSA plans to issue the revised solicitation for the relocation services multiple award schedule (MAS) within this first quarter of 2000. It will be posted through the EPS, which may be accessed at http://www.eps.gov (click on "EPS for Vendors," then "Posted Dates").

Since this is an MAS, each offer will be evaluated on its own merits. Contractors already on schedule will have the option of continuing to do business under their current award as is or to submit an offer on the new special item number (SIN).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Barry McVay at 703-451-5953 or by e-mail to BarryMcVay@FedGovContracts.com.
