GAO commented on two General Services Administration proposals to revise the Federal Acquisition Regulation. GAO: (1) supported a proposed revision which would require solicitations to explicitly inform bidders of the possibility of bid rejection in the event of unbalanced first-article and production prices; and (2) had no objection to a proposed revision which would clarify the procuring agency's responsibility in determining the domestic availability of products under solicitations subject to the Buy American Act.
