This report is to bring the Office of Federal Procurement Policy's attention to two GAO recommendations concerning the acquisition of information technology services under the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS). In GAO's view, implementation of these recommendations has been delayed because of unnecessary coupling with other FSS issues.

|Office of Federal Procurement Policy||1. We believe the guidance concerning competitive quotes and sole source awards for services should be incorporated into the FAR before resolving other issues. More importantly, we believe that this would provide a foundation for immediate improvements in the use of FSS contracts.|
