    When this clause is included is it mandatory that the contractor uses GSA, or is it an option?


    Its optional. The langauge in the clause says "the contracting officer MAY issue an authorization..." As indicated in FAR 2.101,“May” denotes the permissive. Therefore,  the contracting officer can act at  his/her discretion.  He/she does not HAVE to issue the authorization.
