SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES A. Purpose The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) subpart 4.15, and clause 52.204– 11 requires contractors to report on use of Recovery Act funds. Contracting officers must include the new clause in solicitations and contracts funded in whole or in part with Recovery Act funds, except classified solicitations and contracts. Commercial item contracts and Commercially Available Off-TheShelf (COTS) item contracts will be covered, as well as actions under the simplified action threshold. One-Time Reporting, Compensation Requirements. A one-time reporting element for which the burden is imposed on certain prime contractors and first-tier subcontractors to publicly disclose the names and total compensation of each of the contractor’s or first-tier subcontractor’s five most highly compensated officers, for the calendar year in which the award was made. While Section 1512(c)(4) of the Recovery Act requires reporting on all FFATA data elements, including the compensation information, it limits the prime’s reporting responsibility to first tier subcontractors that meet the applicability requirements. The FAR clause requires this compensation disclosure for prime contractors as well because to exclude prime contractors while requiring disclosure for first-tier subcontractors would be unsupportable given the transparency goals of both FFATA and the Recovery Act. There are likely to be some prime contractors that already provide public access to the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:12 Sep 23, 2010 Jkt 220001 compensation of senior executives through periodic reports filed under section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or section 6104 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. For purposes of this analysis, the Government estimates that 5 percent of prime contractors already provide such public access. There are also likely to be some first-tier subcontractors that do not meet either of the revenue thresholds for applicability. For purposes of this analysis, the Government estimates that 5 percent of first-tier subcontractors will not have to disclose compensation information because they do not meet the revenue thresholds.
