Government Contracts Editorial Staff
The Department of Defense has issued a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement. The DFARS Case 2017-D005 final rule changes the entity to which contractors submit Summary Subcontract Reports in the Electronic Subcontracting Reporting System and entity that acknowledges receipt of, or rejects, the reports in eSRS. The rule applies to DoD contractors who have individual subcontracting plans and must comply with the clause at DFARS 252.219-7003. The rule implements a policy that streamlines the submission and review of SSRs for DoD contractors and brings the DFARS into compliance with changes to the FAR. Instead of submitting multiple SSRs to departments and agencies within DoD, contractors with individual subcontracting plans will submit a single, consolidated SSR in eSRS at the DoD level. The consolidated SSR will be acknowledged or rejected in eSRS at the DoD level. There were no changes to the proposed rule (¶70,020.412). For the text of this final rule, see ¶70,016.966. The effective date of the rule is December 21, 2018.
