New FAR Service Contracts Reporting (SCR) Requirements

Definition of SCR Requirements  

By law, executive agencies must prepare an annual inventory of their service contracts, known as SCRs. This is in accordance with Section 743(a) of Division C of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117).

Contractors subject to the SCR requirement must provide the following information in the System for Award Management (SAM) by October 31, 2014: 1) Total Amount Invoiced, 2) Number of Contractor Hours, and 3) DUNS, Subcontract Number, and Number of Subcontract Hours (for applicable First-Tier Subcontractors).

Contracts Subject to SCR Requirements

SCRs are required for all service contracts that contain FAR clauses 52.204-14 or 52.204-15. As described in FAR Subpart 4.17, SCRs are required for these thresholds: 1) Cost-reimbursement, time-and-materials, labor-hour service contracts and/or orders with a “Base and All Options Value” at or above the simplified acquisition threshold of $150,000, and 2) FY14 fixed price service contracts with a “Base and All Options Value” of $2.5 million or greater.

System for Award Management (SAM) Impacts

To complete and submit Service Contracts Reports in SAM, service contractors must have a SAM account with the Entity Administrator, Entity Registration Representative, or Reporter role. Service contractors must take following three steps to complete and submit their SCRs:

1. Log into SAM before October 31, 2014 and click on the “Register/Update Entity” link.

2. Click on the “Service Contract Reporting (SCR)” link.

3. Complete the SCRs for pending actions (displayed by DUNS Number).

If the service contractor does not see a “Service Contract Reporting (SCR)” link, then they do not have reporting privileges (they are not an Entity Administrator, Entity Registration Representative or Reporter) or they do not have contracts subject to the SCR requirements.

Contact the Federal Service Desk for More Information

For more information about the SCR requirements, service contractors should contact the Federal Service Desk (FSD) at 866-606-8220 (U.S.) or 334-206-7828 (international) Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET.

<div><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial; line-height: 15px;">Thank you. SCR requests &quot;Total dollar amount invoiced for services on that contract (including prime and subcontract amount) in the previous government fiscal year (in dollars)&quot;. Should this equal the total contract value including ODCs?&nbsp;</span>For example on GSA AIMS contracts, both labor categories and ODCs such as Speaker s Fees, Translation Services, and Surveys) may be awarded and invoiced. But the &nbsp;SCR &quot;Total number of contractor direct labor hours&quot; would reflect only the labor categories. Would &quot;Total dollar amount invoiced&quot; also only reflect labor categories or include labor categories + ODCs.</div>

<p>Thank you for your follow up message.&nbsp;</p><p>​Earlier this month, all&nbsp;Contract Action Reports (CARs) from FPDS that require SCRs​were transmitted to SAM. This transmission&nbsp;was based on the &quot;Base and All Option Values&quot; thresholds for specific action types stated in the post.&nbsp;</p><p>If you do not see&nbsp;service&nbsp;​CARs for which you expect to submit and complete SCRs, your actions may not be subject to the FAR requirement or you&nbsp;do not have reporting privileges (i.e. an Entity Administrator, Entity Registration Representative or Reporter). Please contact your contracting officer if&nbsp;you confirm you have reporting privileges and an applicable CAR is not identified for SCR or if&nbsp;you have additional questions about the FAR 4.17 requirement.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Thank you for your response. I understand that there may be a lag in transmission of the Contract Action Reports (CARs) based on the new SCR requirements (expected 10/4/14)&nbsp;from FPDS to SAM. What should a contractor do if a contract they expect to report against does not appear by the reporting due date?</p>

<p>Recent GSA solicitation refreshes / mass modifications added FAR clause 52.204-15 SERVICE CONTRACT REPORTING REQUIREMENTS FOR INDEFINITE-DELIVERY CONTRACTS (JAN 2014). Can you confirm if all GSA Schedule contractors providing services are now subject to this SCR reporting requirement due 10/31/14 in SAM?</p>
