House  Report 110-

SEC. 874. IMPROVEMENTS TO THE FEDERAL PROCUREMENT DATA SYSTEM.

(a) Enhanced Transparency on Interagency Contracting and Other Transactions- Not later than one year after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget shall direct appropriate revisions to the Federal Procurement Data System or any successor system to facilitate the collection of complete, timely, and reliable data on interagency contracting actions and on transactions other than contracts, grants, and cooperative agreements issued pursuant to section 2371 of title 10, United States Code, or similar authorities. The Director shall ensure that data, consistent with what is collected for contract actions, is obtained on--

(1) interagency contracting actions, including data at the task or delivery-order level; and

(2) other transactions, including the initial award and any subsequent modifications awarded or orders issued (other than transactions that are reported through the Federal Assistance Awards Data System).

(b) Amendment- Subsection (d) of section 19 of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy Act (41 U.S.C. 417(d)) is amended to read as follows:

`(d) Transmission and Data Entry of Information- The head of each executive agency shall ensure the accuracy of the information included in the record established and maintained by such agency under subsection (a) and shall transmit in a timely manner such information to the General Services Administration for entry into the Federal Procurement Data System referred to in section 6(d)(4), or any successor system.'.

(c) Report to Congress-

(1) REPORT REQUIRED- Not later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Administrator of General Services shall submit to Congress a report.

(2) CONTENTS OF REPORT- The report shall contain the following:

(A) A list of all databases that include information about Federal contracting and Federal grants.

(B) Recommendations for further legislation or administrative action that the Administrator considers appropriate to create a centralized, comprehensive Federal contracting and Federal grant database.

Improvements to the Federal Procurement Data System. Section 873 enhances the transparency of multiple-award and interagency contracts by requiring additional reporting to the existing federal procurement database.

Note:  On Rep. Waxman's summary of of September 24, 2008, this explanation states that it applies to Section 873.  However, the language of the explanation and Section 874 appear to be similar.  As a result, this explanation is placed here and not with Section 873.
