Federal contractors that perform work funded, in whole or in part, by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 must report on certain aspects of that work under an interim rule issued by the FAR Councils on March 31, 2009. As currently written, the interim rule provides that recipients of Recovery Act funds must report information including, but not limited to—
a) The dollar amount of contractor invoices;
b) The supplies delivered and services performed;
c) An assessment of the completion status of the work;
d) An estimate of the number of jobs created and the number of jobs retained as a result of the Recovery Act funds;
e) Names and total compensation of each of the five most highly compensated officers for the calendar year in which the contract is awarded if in its preceding fiscal year the contractor received 80 percent or more of its annual gross revenues and $25 million or more in annual gross revenue from federal funds, and such information is not publicly available through SEC filings; and
f) Information on first-tier subcontractors, including the same executive compensation information required from prime contractors.
