STANDARD FORM (SF) 295 REPORTING REQUIREMENTS
PURPOSE: To revise the frequency of Standard Form (SF) 295 reporting from quarterly to semiannually.
BACKGROUND: Under 48 CFR 1852.21975, NASA has required the submission of quarterly reports using Standard Form (SF) 295. The SF 295 gives the Agency a summary of subcontracts awarded under the Agency's contracts. The reports have been used by NASA to chart the Agency's progress in achieving a statutorily required small disadvantaged business goal. Annual reporting is not frequent enough to determine the extent of small disadvantaged business participation in NASA programs. However, in the interest of regulatory reform, NASA is reducing the frequency of SF 295 reports from quarterly to semiannually. NASA will also continue to rely on semiannual SF 294 reports of subcontracting activity under individual contracts. The SF 294 enables the Agency to administer subcontracting plans by monitoring the prime contractor's achievement of subcontracting goals under individual contracts.
Contracting officers are required to insert the clause at 1852.21975, as revised, in all applicable solicitations and contracts. Current contracts containing subcontracting plans shall also be amended to require semiannual submission of the SF 295.
