Contracting Opportunities

The NRC awards a wide variety of contracts to commercial firms, non-profit organizations and universities each year. The NRC buys a broad range of products and services, including technical assistance and research in nuclear fields, information technology, facility management and administrative support.

Service Contract Reporting

On December 31, 2013, the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council issued a rule, effective January 30, 2014, requiring contractors to begin reporting the total amount invoiced and the direct labor hours expended on the services performed under certain contracts. These changes are required by section 743 of Division C of the FY 2010 Consolidated Appropriations Act (P.L. 111-117).

The information is collected through the System for Award Management (SAM) and included in the agency service contract inventory. Contractors are encouraged to review the Fact Sheet in the link below and to make note of reporting dates and deliverables to ensure their compliance with the law and regulation.
