Contractors who are looking to bid, or who must report, on federal stimulus projects can find help online with two federal portals: www.recovery.gov and www.federalreporting.gov.
FederalRecovery.gov, which was revamped Sept. 28, 2009, allows users to find stimulus projects by congressional district, state or ZIP code. Visitors can use its mapping application to find stimulus projects in their local communities.
As of Oct. 1, companies that receive federal stimulus funds were required to begin filing reports on FederalReporting.gov.
Subcontractors on stimulus projects whose prime contractors will not report on their behalf must register on the federal reporting Web site with a company name, e-mail address, DUNS number and Central Contractor Registration number. Once registered, subcontractors must report the company’s physical address, award number, project location, amount of Recovery Act funds used, and the number of jobs created or retained.
