SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    On March 31, 2009, the Councils published an interim rule in the 
Federal Register, FAR Case 2009-009, American Recovery and Reinvestment 
Act of 2009 (the Recovery Act)--Reporting Requirements (74 FR 14639). 
The rule implements section 1512 of Public Law 111-5, the American 
Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the ``Recovery Act''), which 
requires Federal contractors that receive awards (or modifications to 
existing awards) funded, in whole or in part, by the Recovery Act to 
report quarterly on the use of the funds at federalreporting.gov.
    To comply with the reporting required by FAR 52.204-11, Federal 
contractors must first register at federalreporting.gov. Registration 
is now open to Federal contractors. The reporting tool will be 
available on October 1, 2009. Reports, which are due October 10, 2009, 
can only be submitted once registration is authorized. For more 
information on the registration and authorization process, go to 
federalreporting.gov. For information regarding the Paperwork Reduction 
Act, see Information Collection Request (ICR) Reference Number 200907-
0430-001 and OMB Control Number 0430-0002 available at http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain (select ``Recovery Accountability and 
Transparency Board'' from the ``Select Agency'' drop down menu and
