Subcontract reporting goes online.

The government's Electronic Subcontracting Reporting System (eSRS) is up and running.

Civilian agencies and their large prime contractors are now required to use the website to file the small business subcontracting information that was formerly contained in paper SF 294's, Individual Subcontracting Reports, and SF 295's, Summary Subcontracting Reports.

GSA and SBA said the Defense Department won't begin using the system until next year.

"The eSRS is a development that will substantially improve accountability, transparency and communication about small business subcontracting," said GSA Chief Acquisition Officer Emily Murphy.

When the system is fully operational in about two months, it will generate reports on primes' compliance with their subcontracting plans. "This is very important, because it will give us precise and timely insight into the value of subcontracts awarded to small businesses," SBA Administrator Hector Barreto said in a statement.

The fully operational system will also allow primes to connect their back-office systems so that data can be reported automatically. The eSRS will provide automatic reminder notices to contractors when reports are due and generate delinquent notices when the reports are late.
