SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: On April 26, 2000, GSA published a final rule transfering policy and regulatory requirements for transportation payment and audit from the FPMR Part 101-41 to FMR Part 102-118. However, the policies and procedures relating to the cash payment of transportation services and unused tickets were inadvertently omitted during the transfer. This amendment adds the following to FMR Part 102-118:

In addition, besides revising text, correcting various errors, and updating references in FMR Part 102-118, this rule amends the Federal Supply Service, Audit Division Internet address by removing "http://www.fss.gsa.gov/transtrav" throughout FMR Part 102-117, Transportation Management, and FMR Part 102-118, and replacing it with "http://www.gsa.gov/transaudits".
