Federal Contractor Coverage

Companies that want to conduct a preliminary search of existing federal contracts can utilize a number of free online resources offered by the federal government. These include, but are not limited to, the following websites:

  • System for Award Management (SAM) – SAM allows companies to search by name and/or a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number. Results can provide valuable search information, such as a DUNS number (if not known already), status information (active/inactive), business information, company contact information, North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) numbers and descriptions, and much more. Using this website to obtain a DUNS number can also make searching other websites more efficient.
  • Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) – FPDS can be searched using a company name or DUNS number. Results can include the company name and location information, dates that the contracts were signed, parent company information, contract amounts, the contracting agency, and more. The results page also provides a link to more detailed information about the employer, the contracting agencies, and contract specifics such as the type of contract, effective and completion dates, what product or services are being contracted for, competition information, etc. Companies that are unsure if they have a contract or subcontract meeting the monetary threshold for coverage will find this website very helpful.
  • USASpending.gov – USASpending can be searched using a company name, DUNS number, award number, or keyword. Search options can be further refined by specific types of spending (contracts, grants, loans, or other financial assistance) and the fiscal year in which the spending occurred. Results can include the company name, award ID, award amount, award type and date, contracting agency, legislative mandates (which identify whether the McNamara-O’Hara Service Contract Act of 1965, the Walsh-Healey Public Contracts Act of 1936, or the Davis-Bacon Act of 1931 applies to the contract), and more. The results can provide even more details such as historical information, the product or service being contracted for, the place of performance, detailed contract amounts and information, etc. As with FPDS, companies that are unsure if they have a contract or subcontract meeting the monetary threshold for coverage will find the USASpending website to be very helpful.
  • The United States Department of Labor (DOL) has two separate websites that show whether OFCCP or other federal agencies have audited, cited, or closed matters related to specific facility locations in the past. These include the DOL’s Data Enforcement website and the DOL’s National Pre-Award Registry website. Unlike FPDS and USASpending, these two websites will not provide specific contract information; rather, these websites provide the results of investigations and completed audits. Such information can be helpful in determining whether coverage existed previously and what types of issues were investigated, and absent a change in circumstances from the prior investigation or audit, a company may be able to more easily determine current coverage.
  • One of the results displayed when searching for a company on the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services’ E-Verify website is whether the company has designated itself in the past as a federal contractor. Although this will not provide any contract-specific or past audit information, a “yes” result identifies that a company has notified the government via other means or filings that it is a federal contractor.

 

Note that just because a company is listed on any of the above websites does not mean it is automatically covered by some or all federal contractor regulations. These websites, and others like them, simply provide companies with a resource to determine what contracts may exist so that an analysis can be completed in light of federal contractor coverage thresholds.
