FTR Rules on Relocation Allowances Finalized

The General Services Administration has finalized, with changes, two proposed Federal Travel Regulation rules (70,033.26, 70,033.31) addressing relocation allowances. The result is a unified, single final rule that addresses a wide range of relocation issues. The extensive changes to the FTR include the addition of FTR 302-1 Subpart B, which contains three sections describing a comprehensive relocation management system, urges agencies to adopt a comprehensive relocation management system, and reiterates a requirement to report to GSA on relocation activities. Also, the rule amends FTR 302-12 Subpart B, which now requires agencies to examine and evaluate the objectives and relative costs of their relocation benefits and management processes to determine whether they should have a comprehensive homesale program. The rule incorporates recommendations of both the Relocation Best Practices Committee, which was created to examine government relocation policy, and the Government wide Relocation Advisory Board, which was created through the Federal Advisory Committee Act to allow the use of private industry expertise in both the rulemaking process and possible legislative actions involving government relocation policy. A full list of the FTR provisions affected by the final rule appears in the regulation table below. The rule goes into effect August 1, 2011. For the text of the final rule, see 70,030.152.
