Abstract : The Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act of 1994 (FASA), enacted on October 13, 1994, as Public Law 103-355, contained more than 200 sections changing the laws that govern how agencies acquire almost $200 billion of goods and services annually. The act established deadlines for publishing proposed and final implementing regulations, prescribed a minimum 60-day period for public review and comment on proposed regulations, and required regulation drafters to make every effort to ensure that the regulations are concise and understandable. This report responds to section 10003 (a) of the act, which required us to evaluate and report on compliance with these requirements. Our objectives were to (1) determine whether all regulations necessary to implement the act were published in accordance with the act's requirements and (2) describe the efforts made to make the regulations concise and understandable.
