Washington, D.C., June 12, 1970. Hon. ROBERT L. KUNZIG, Administrator, General Services Administration, Washington, D.C.

DEAR MR. KUNZIG : As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Economy in Government, I am pleased to learn that you will be able to testify before us on Wednesday, July 1, 1970, at 2:00 PM concerning the progress that has been made by GSA in expanding competition in the procurement of peripheral equipment for use with ADPE systems, savings made, and pending action. Your suggestions for further improvements will be most timely. The session will be held in Room AE-1 (S. 407) in the Capitol.

The report of April 23, 1968, of the Subcommittee on Economy in Government had specific recommendations as to (a) inventory practices in respect to government-owned automatic data processing equipment, including equipment furnished to contractors and (b) the need for procurement specifications which would afford free and full competition to all qualified potential bidders, including the small manufacturers of peripheral equipment. Information as to space and storage requirements caused by the expanding use of ADPE will also be useful to the Subcommittee.

We are asking the witnesses to confine their formal presentation to 15 or 20 minutes so that substantial time will be available for the question and discussion period. You are invited to file a longer, more comprehensive statement of your testimony or exhibits, if appropriate, for inclusion in the printed record of the hearings.

The Subcommittee on Economy in Government issued a report dated April 23, 1968, which, among other things, made some recommendations concerning the procurement of peripheral equipments for Automatic Data Processing systems.

We find that considerable action has been taken by the General Accounting Office, Bureau of the Budget, General Services Administration, the Department of Defense, and the Bureau of Standards with regard to these matters. It is timely, therefore, to make a review of progress made, actions pending, and improvements now required to obtain further economy.

Your testimony, as President of the Computer Peripheral Manufacturing Association, should give particular regard to the extent of progress made, the participation of small manufacturers in Federal procurements, the presence, or absence, of restrictive conditions in invitations to bid, and suggestions for further improvements in the program.

We are asking the witnesses to confine their formal presentation to 15 or 20 minutes so that substantial time will be available for the question and discussion period. You are invited to file a longer, more comprehensive statement of your testimony or exhibits, if appropriate, for inclusion in the printed record of the hearings.
