Electronic Subcontracting Reporting System (e-SRS) Information

As part of the President's Management Agenda for Electronic Government (E-Gov), the Electronic Subcontracting Reporting System (eSRS) was developed to collect subcontracting accomplishments. This system replaces the paper Standard Form 294, Subcontract Reporting for Individual Contracts, and the Standard Form 295, Summary Subcontract Report. Government prime contractors and subcontractors submit subcontracting reports, Individual Subcontracting Reports (ISR) and Summary Subcontracting Reports (SSR) via the eSRS website, http://esrs.govExternal Link.

The Department of Defense (DoD) began implementation of eSRS In April 2008. Prime contractors and subcontractors (with Subcontracting Plans) were required to submit subcontracting reports using the eSRS for the FY 2008 reporting period and all subsequent reporting periods.

Guidance documents have been created to assist DoD's large business contractors in preparing and submitting their subcontracting reports. The “DoD Subcontracting Program: The Basics ”[PDF] provides information on Subcontracting Plans. The “Tips for Contractors Submitting Subcontracting Reports in ESRS”[PDF] provides detailed guidance, including screen-shots, for preparing and submitting the required subcontracting reports. Additional guidance documents include the following fact sheets:
