Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA) - Reporting Requirement of Subcontractor Award Data                              2006-029                   Woodson.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A summary of the FAR rule follows. For the 
actual revisions and/or amendments to this FAR case, refer to FAR Case 
    FAC 2005-20 amends the FAR as specified below:

Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA) - Reporting 
Requirement of Subcontractor Award Data (FAR Case 2006-029)

    This final rule amends the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to 
require that contractors report specific subcontract awards to a public 
database. The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 
2006 (FFATA) (Pub. L. 109-282) requires the existence and operation of 
a searchable website that provides public access to information about 
Federal expenditures. This final rule establishes a pilot program to 
test the collection and accession of subcontract award data. As a 
result, subcontracts awarded and funded with Federal appropriated funds 
will eventually be disclosed to the public in a single searchable 
website. However, information reported under the pilot program will not 
be disclosed to the public.
