DoD Contracting Opportunities

As part of the Recovery Act, DoD has identified over 4,000 construction, facility repair, and research projects.

DoD American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 Supplemental Job Guidance

The Department of Defense (DoD) is providing this information for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding recipients that is necessary to effectively implement the reporting requirements included in Section 1512 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The July memo issued by OMB (M-09-21Guidance) indicates that prime recipients and sub- recipients are the owners of the data submitted. Recipients are to report on the amount of recovery funds received, a list of projects and activities for which the funds will be used, an evaluation of the completion status of the project or activity, an estimate of the number of jobs created and/or retained by the project or activity, and details surrounding State and Local government investment in the project or activity. Due to the limited number of grants, recipients of Recovery Act funded grants are required to report directly to Federal Reporting.gov. Statistical methodologies will not be used for reporting jobs created and/or retained by the project or activity. Utilization of this online reporting tool will ensure standardized reporting compliance for the Department's Recovery Act funded grants. DoD expects all grantees to directly and comprehensively collect the jobs information for their projects, as well as the projects of any sub-recipients and vendors.

 

Roadmap to Recovery: 2,300 Projects in the Next 100 Days

By August 31, the Department of Defense (DoD) plans to have construction and facility repair projects underway in 49 states, plus Guam and the District of Columbia, using $1.9 billion of Recovery Act funds. This means construction has started, not merely that a contract has been awarded. About 225 of these projects should be completed by Labor Day. These are roads, roofs, windows, and air conditioning systems that will be fixed in the first 200 days of the Recovery Act.

The 2,300 projects that will be underway by Labor Day are listed below by location:

Defense is Moving 

Swiftly on Recovery Act
Click to enlarge

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 includes approximately $7.4 billion in Defense-related appropriations, which account for less than 1 percent of the total $787 billion stimulus package signed on February 17 by President Obama. DoD intends to spend this funding with full transparency and accountability.

As stated on Recovery.gov, the purpose of the Recovery Act is to create and save jobs, jumpstart our economy, and build the foundation for long- term economic growth. DoD is pursuing three broad goals with its Recovery Act funding:

  • Preserve and create American jobs
  • Care for U.S. Service members and their families
  • Improve DoD energy efficiency

Spring 2009 Program Plans:

Appropriations in this bill are available for obligation through the end of fiscal 2010, and through the end of fiscal 2013 for military construction.

Recovery Act funding addresses some of the unique economic pressures faced by American service members because of their voluntary commitment to serve our nation. Specific investment in military construction will further President Obama’s goal of providing stimulus to the economy while helping to improve the quality of life for our troops and their families. In addition to providing much needed facility improvements, this bill also provides more funding for our energy research programs, so that DoD can continue to lead the way in the national effort to achieve greater energy independence.

Department of Defense's (DoD) Recipient Reporting Information

Section 1512 of the Recovery Act requires recipients of Recovery Act contracts, grants, and loans to report quarterly on their use of Recovery Act funding. The first of these reports was submitted in October 2009 for the period ending September 30, 2009 and has continued at the end of each quarter since then. The Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board has identified and deployed a nationwide data collection website Federal Reporting.gov to collect this data. Information on all primary and secondary recipients is reported on this website. Following each quarterly reporting cycle, the data is available on the Recovery.Gov website.
