Electronic Subcontract Reporting System
An electronic system for agencies and contractors to use to report subcontracting accomplishments is now available. The Electronic Subcontract Reporting Systems (eSRS) is functioning at its initial capacity, according to a General Services Administration announcement.
The system is expected to achieve full capability, including integration with many back-office applications and expanded reporting features, in early 2006. GSA awarded the contract to create eSRS to Symplicty, an 8(a) firm, in January.
Contractors to civilian agencies can now enter their subcontracting reports for individual contracts and summary subcontract reports online, replacing a couple of paper forms. Civilian contractors are required to submit summary reports for fiscal 2004 into the system, but not individual contracts. They must submit summary and individual reports for fiscal 2005, however.
ESRS is the latest system under the umbrella of GSA's Integrated Acquisition Environment. Defense Department contractors will be able to use it by the third quarter of fiscal 2006.
