Commercial E-Commerce Portal: Request for Written Comments

Please click here to view the Federal Register notice of a public meeting and request for comments.

To assist GSA and OMB in drafting the Phase I implementation plan, interested parties are invited to submit written comments. GSA and OMB are encouraging respondents to submit comments before the public meeting on January 9, 2018, as the submissions  will help GSA and OMB prepare informed questions for the public meeting discussions. All comments must be submitted by January 16, 2018 to allow the government to take them into account before drafting the Phase I implementation plan.

To facilitate comment submission, GSA and OMB have developed a number of questions grouped around three focus areas—program design, business practices, and implementation. Each question is intended to provide respondents with a general framework for commenting. These questions are not intended to be all-inclusive; other comments and observations are encouraged. Interested parties are also encouraged to comment on other issues that are especially important in thinking about Phase I and the initial implementation plan.

GSA and OMB understand the tight timeframe for initial comment may limit commenters' ability to fully address every issue and are therefore encouraging commenters to continue their analysis and provide additional input at future outreach sessions.

We appreciate your continued partnership and look forward to receiving your feedback.
