USASpending.Gov: Now, With More Subcontract Data!

Posted By Judy Bradt, Summit Insight, Tuesday, November 02, 2010
Government's best contract research tool just even got better...

I thought I was hallucinating: when I was doing a federal contract data search a few weeks ago, my query started pulling records based on a company name. Well, it's supposed to do that...but the company I was searching for wasn't ever a prime.

My search found them because they were a SUBCONTRACTOR. "That's nice," I thought. "What changed? When did primes start collecting and publishing subcontractor data?"

In fact: the Federal Fiscal Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA), passed in 2006, is finally hitting its implementation dates.
  • Since July 1st, federal prime contractors have been entering data on all subcontractors on contracts or task orders worth more than $20 million.
  • As of October 1st, 2010, they have to report subcontracts under federally-awarded contracts and orders valued at or above $550,000
  • By March 1st 2011, USASpending.Gov will have subcontractor data for every prime contract and task order worth more than $25,000.
This is all part of GSA's Integrated Acquisition Environment project. Over the next three years, IBM will consolidate nine different systems into a single portal called SAM -- the System for Award Management.
