Very Important News about Integrated Acquisition Environment (IAE)
The Integrated Acquisition Environment used to consist of eight systems: CCR, FedReg, EPLS, eSRS, FBO/FedTeDS, FPDS, ORCA and WDOL, but as of May 29, 2012 the systems were integrated into one. While the systems previously interacted, there were no shared services between them. Each system had its own database, unique data elements, reporting capabilities, user accounts, security certifications, etc. and was maintained by separate agencies. The new IAE acquisition strategy aggregates these services, ultimately moving these separate and disparate support systems to a single integrated platform where common business services are shared. The system monitoring IAE is the System for Award Management (SAM).

Individual Subcontracting Report (ISR)
An ISR is required for each contract containing an Individual Subcontracting Plan. It is also required semiannually from a prime contractor and its lower tier subcontractors. An ISR is not required for Commercial or DoD Comprehensive Subcontracting Plans (CSP). A Summary Subcontract Report (SSR) is required from each prime contractor/subcontractor with at least one contract supporting DoD that includes an ISR. An SSR, which includes all subcontracting under federal government contracts and non-government contracts, must be submitted semiannually.
