GAO commented on proposed amendments to the Federal Acquisition Regulation that would: (1) change a present standard form to provide space for interested architect-engineering firms to enter consultant personnel information; (2) require contractors to give advance notice of minimum carload or truckload shipments and shipments of classified, sensitive or hazardous materials; and (3) change plant clearance policies regarding contractor and subcontractor inventories of government property no longer needed for contract performance. GAO had no objection to the proposed changes.
