FAR Council Finalizes Reporting Requirements for Executive Compensation and First-Tier Subcontract Awards
On July 26, 2012, the FAR Council issued a final rule
requiring certain contractors to report executive compensation, first-tier subcontract awards, and executive compensation information for first-tier subcontractors for public release on the USASpending website. While the final rule is very similar to the interim rule issued on July 8, 2010, there is a substantive change to the definition of first-tier subcontract, and the preamble to the final rule contains extensive commentary to guide the implementation of the rule, including discussion of the application of the public company exemption.
