139 SMALL BUSINESS LIAISON OFFICER TRAINING 139 Module 6: Small Business Metrics and Reporting 006A – Reporting What is eSRS?  eSRS is the electronic reporting system that replaces paper reporting on SF294s and SF295s.  SF294 has been replaced with the ISR – Individual Subcontracting Report.  SF295 has been replaced with the SSR – Summary Subcontracting Report.

Click on “File ISR” from the left navigation and then on “Continue”.

Enter the contract number (no dashes). If there are existing contracts in the system under the DUNS number you entered, they will appear in the drop down menu.

148 SMALL BUSINESS LIAISON OFFICER TRAINING 148 Module 6: Small Business Metrics and Reporting 006J – Reporting Entering an ISR (Cont’d) *** TIP *** If you get an error message that your contract number does not match any contracts in the system, contact your Government contracting official. The contract you are trying to reference is not coded in FPDS as having a subcontracting plan. Accordingly, this needs to be updated in FPDS by the Government before you can proceed with entering your ISR.

149 SMALL BUSINESS LIAISON OFFICER TRAINING 149 Module 6: Small Business Metrics and Reporting 006K – Reporting Entering an ISR (Cont’d) 5.Once eSRS has found your contract, indicate whether you are the prime or the sub for the contract. 6.

If not, inform your Government contracting official of the error(s). 7. Fill in any open boxes showing on the screen. These represent information not found in FPDS. 8. Enter the dollar values in each box. All mandatory fields are marked with a red *. eSRS will automatically calculate percentages. 9.

151 SMALL BUSINESS LIAISON OFFICER TRAINING 151 Module 6: Small Business Metrics and Reporting 006M – Reporting FPDS: Federal Procurement Data Systems – Next Generation  FPDS/NG identifies contracts having subcontracting requirements https://www.fpds.gov  Use FPDS/NG if you are unable to find or report against a contract in eSRS.  In FPDS you will find the Contract Number as it will appear in eSRS, DUNS number, Vendor Name and Location.  If your contract is in FPDS/NG but not in eSRS, then the likely problem is that the Government contracting official has not checked off that a subcontracting plan is required.

152 SMALL BUSINESS LIAISON OFFICER TRAINING 152 Module 6: Small Business Metrics and Reporting 006N – Reporting SSR  SSR is a report of your entire US Owned Supplier Spend.  Data collected should include all direct US Govt. contracts, large and small dollars as well as indirect dollars with US Firms.  The report is completed semi-annually and covers overall performance on Federal contracts.  Provide separate SSRs for each agency with which you have contracts; lump all of DoD together except for Corps of Engineers.  The Approving Official for your DoD SSR will be the cognizant Assistant Director of Small Business at DCMA.  Retain signed hard copies for 4 years.

158 SMALL BUSINESS LIAISON OFFICER TRAINING 158 Module 6: Small Business Metrics and Reporting 006T – Reporting Optional Form 312 #1 Reason  If a contract contains either of the SDB Participation mechanisms - the Evaluation Factor for SDB Participation or the Monetary Subcontracting Incentive- the contracting officer needs a way to determine at contract completion that the contractor met its SDB target in the authorized NAICS Major Groups codes. The Optional Form 312 does not have to be submitted semi-annually, as does the ISR; rather it is submitted only once, at contract completion.

159 SMALL BUSINESS LIAISON OFFICER TRAINING 159 Module 6: Small Business Metrics and Reporting 006U – Reporting Optional Form 312 #2 Reason  Is to provide a way for the Government to collect comprehensive subcontracting data by NAICS code. This information will enable the Dept. of Commerce to fine-tune its industry benchmarks in subcontracting. It will be accomplished by requiring all Government contractors that normally submit the Summary Subcontract Report, to include a breakout of subcontract awards to SDBs by NAICS code.

160 SMALL BUSINESS LIAISON OFFICER TRAINING 160 Module 6: Small Business Metrics and Reporting 006V – Reporting NOTE:  Effective Oct 1, 2000, FAR Clause , under Paragraph (j)(2), SSR Reporting, changed to read as follows: “All reports at the close of each fiscal year (both commercial and individual plans) shall include a breakout, in the Contractors format, of subcontract awards, in whole dollars, to Small Disadvantaged Business concerns by NAICS Classification Industry Subsector. For a Commercial Plan, the Contractor may obtain from each of its subcontractors a predominant NAICS Major Group and report all awards to that subcontractor under its predominant NAICS Code.

161 SMALL BUSINESS LIAISON OFFICER TRAINING 161 Module 6: Small Business Metrics and Reporting 006W – Reporting Common mistakes on the forms: Make sure the data is ACCURATE  Block 2: Wrong or incomplete DUNS Number  Block 6: Administering Activity. If you are reporting to NASA or Civilian Agencies, you will have to issue a SSR to those agencies. DCMA does not collect data for the Corps of Engineers – they have their own reporting mechanism.  Block 7: Report on both subcontract number, if applicable, and appropriate contract #.  Block 8: Use most recent address and street number for the Buying Activity.  Ensure data is cumulative on an annual basis for the SSR and for the life of the contract for the ISR.
