(a) Certain GSA property management and related policies and procedures which come within the scope of this Chapter 105 nevertheless may be excluded therefrom when there is justification. These exclusions may include the following categories:

(1) Subject matter that bears a security classification;

(2) Policies and procedures that are expected to be effective for a period of less than 6 months;

(4) Policies and procedures pertaining to other functions of GSA as well as property management functions and there is need to make the issuance available simultaneously to all GSA employees involved; and

(b) Property management policies and procedures issued in other than the FPMR system format under paragraphs (a)(4) and (5) of this section, shall be codified into Chapter 105 at the earliest practicable date, but in any event not later than 6 months from date of issuance.

$ 105-1.000-50 Scope of part.

This part describes the method by which the General Services Administration (GSA) implements and supplements the Federal Property Management Regulations (FPMR) and implements certain regulations prescribed by other agencies. It contains procedures that implement and supplement Part 101-1 of the FPMR.

Subpart 105-1.1-Regulations System

8 105–1.100 Scope of subpart.

This subpart establishes the General Services Administration Property Management Regulations (GSPMR) and provides certain introductory material.

$ 105-1.101 General Services Administra

tion Property Management Regula

tions. The General Services Administration Property Management Regulations (GSPMR) include the GSA property management policies and procedures which, together with the Federal Property Management Regulations, certain regulations prescribed by other agencies, and various GSA orders govern the management of property and records and certain related activities of GSA. They may contain policies and procedures of interest to other

$ 105-1.102 Relationship of GSPMR to

FPMR. (a) GSPMR implement and supplement the FPMR and implement certain other regulations. They are part of the General Services Administration Regulations System. Material published in the FPMR (which has Governmentwide applicability) becomes effective throughout GSA upon the effective date of the particular FPMR material. In general, the FPMR that are implemented and supplemented shall not be repeated, paraphrased, or otherwise restated Chapter 105.

(b) Implementing is the process of expanding upon the FPMR or other Government-wide regulations. Supple

in similar subject area grouping. Regulations on advisory committee management are recodified as Part 105-54 to place them in the appropriate subject area category. Regulations on standards of conduct remain in Part 105-735 because the number 735 identifies regulations of the U.S. Civil Service Commission and various civil agencies on this subject.


menting is the process of prescribing material for which there is no counterpart in the Government-wide regulations.

(C) GSPMR may deviate from the regulations that implemented when a deviation (see $ 105-1.110) is authorized in and explicitly referenced to such regulations. Where Chapter 105 contains no material implementing the FPMR, the FPMR shall govern. 8 105-1.104 Publication of GSPMR.

(a) Most GSPMR are published in the FEDERAL REGISTER. This practice helps to ensure that interested business concerns, other agencies, and the public are apprised of GSA policies and procedures pertaining to property and records management and certain related activities.

(b) Most GSPMR are published in cumulative form in Chapter 105 of Title 41 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The FEDERAL REGISTER and Title 41 of the Code of Federal Regulations may be purchased from the Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402.

8 105-1.109-52 Cross-references.

(a) Within Chapter 105, cross-references to the FPMR shall be made in the same manner as used within the FPMR. Illustrations of cross-references to the FPMR are:

(1) Part 101-3
(2) Subpart 101-3.1
(3) $ 101-3.413-5

(b) Within Chapter 105, cross-references to parts, subparts, sections, and subsections of Chapter 105 shall be made in a manner generally similar to that used in making cross-references to the FPMR. For example, this paragraph would be referenced as $ 1051.109-52(b).

8 105-1.106 Applicability.

Chapter 105 applies to the management of property and records and to certain other programs and activities of GSA. Unless otherwise specified, Chapter 105 applies to activities outside as well as within the United States.

8 105–1.109 Numbering.

8 105–1.109-50 General plan.

Chapter 105 is divided into parts, subparts, and further subdivisions as necessary. 8 105-1.109-51 Arrangement.

(a) Parts 105-2 through 105-49 are used for GSPMR that implement regulations in the corresponding pa of Chapter 101. This practice results in comparable grouping by subject area without establishment of subchapters.

(b) Parts 105-50 and above are used for GSPMR that supplement regulations in the FPMR and implement regulations of other agencies. Part numbers are assigned so as to accomplish a

8 105-1.110 Deviation.

(a) The term "deviation" as used in this Chapter 105 is defined in the same manner as described in § 1-1.0091.

(b) To maintain uniformity to the greatest extent feasible, deviation from the FPMR to the GSPMR shall be kept to a minimum and controlled. Approval of any deviation from the FPMR or Chapter 105 shall be made only by the Administrator. In each instance, the authorizing document shall disclose the nature of the deviation and the reasons for such special action, and a copy of the document shall be furnished to the Paperwork Management Division (BRA), OAD. Deviations may be extended but otherwise will expire 12 months from the date of approval, unless sooner rescinded without prejudice to any action thereunder.

(c) Requests for deviations shall be supported by statements adequate to disclose fully the nature of the deviation and the need therefore. Requests shall be submitted to the Ad
