REPORTING PROCEDURES

Legal Authority: 40 USC 121(c); 10 USC ch 137; 42 USC 2473(c)

Abstract: The Civilian Agency Acquisition Council and the Defense 
Acquisition Regulations Council (Councils) are issuing an interim rule 
amending the FAR to revise three subparagraphs and add one subparagraph 
to the clause at FAR 52.204-11. This interim rule does not require 
renegotiation of existing Recovery Act contracts that include the

require first-tier subcontractors with Recovery Act funded awards of 
$25,000 or more, to report jobs information to the prime contractor for 
reporting into FederalReporting.gov. It also will require the prime 
contractor to submit its first report on or before the 10th day after 
the end of the calendar quarter in which the prime contractor received 
the award, and quarterly thereafter.
This is a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was subject to 
review under section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning 
and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule 
under 5 U.S.C. 804.

require contractors to report executive compensation and first-tier 
subcontractor awards on contracts expected to be $25,000 or more,
