Subcontracting for Small Business 

DoD Prime Contractor Directory 
Our fiscal year 2017 DoD Prime Contractor Directory identifies large prime contractors that are required to establish subcontracting plans with goals. The list includes company names, prime contract numbers, contract periods of performance, NAICS codes, company points of contact (POCs), POC phone numbers and POC email addresses. You can use this directory to find the contact information of prime contractors for potential subcontracting opportunities. The directory is generated from data contained in Individual Subcontract Reports (ISRs) reported by prime contractors in the Electronic Subcontracting Reporting System (eSRS) and data contained in the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS).


All contracts with "N/A" listed for periods of performance are Indefinite-Delivery-Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contracts that have task orders with their own periods of performances; the task orders are not listed; only the IDIQ contract. includes details about subcontract awards. You can use to connect subcontract awards to prime contracts and identify prime contractors that are awarding subcontracts in your local area.
