Part of: Record Group 330: Records of the Office of the Secretary of Defense
Function and Use: The agency created the database to provide administrative and management control over military supplies and services procurements within the Department of Defense. The agency also used these data to prepare special reports to the President, the Secretary of Defense, the Congress, and to private industry.
Scope & Content Note: This series contains information about contracts for goods and services between the private sector and the military services and agencies of the Department of Defense. Department of Defense (DD) Forms DD 350 and DD 1057 are the sources of the data. There is a record for each contract with information derived from DD 350, the Individual Contracting Action Report. The DD 350 is used in every fiscal year (FY). The DD 1057, the Monthly Summary of Contracting Actions, provides information on the total number of contracting actions and total number of dollars by month for each of the military services and agencies. There is a record for each of the contract categories listed in the DD 1057. The DD 1057 was used from FY 1984 through FY 2003. It was not used in FY 2004 and the following fiscal years. From FY 1976 to 1983, the records encompass armed forces procurement contracts with a value of $10,000 or larger. Beginning in FY 1983, the records encompass military contracts with a value of $25,000 or more. The specific information collected on DD Form 350, and thus represented in these records, varied somewhat over time. Each contract record potentially provides information about the following topics involved in defense spending: system administration; reporting dates; the government purchasing or contracting office, the business name of the government contractor, description of the military supplies, systems, or services for which contracted, and its dollar value; and type of procurement, including whether competitively bid, and whether the contract awardee was a foreign firm, minority business, small business, or women-owned business. Beginning in FY 1984, the records contain more detailed data in most of the above categories. There are two files for 1976.
Access Restrictions: Restricted - Partly. FOIA (b)(6) Personal Information. The Fiscal Year 1989 and later files contain Establishment Taxpayer Identification Number (ETIN). NARA has created public use versions of these files with the ETIN field masked.
General Note: This series is the successor to the series "Records of Prime Contracts Awarded by the Military Services and Agencies, 1965-1975."
