The General Services Administration (GSA) needs to improve its planning for management of record communications services.

GSA did not thoroughly evaluate alternatives in its planning during 1969 and 1970 for future Advanced Record System services. Instead, GSA extended the existing contract, which resulted in subjecting the Government to significantly higher potential termination charges. Contrary to GSA expectations of saturation, the Advanced Record System has unused capacity resulting primarily because a large user established its own system.
