MANPOWER REPORTING
                              BACKGROUND
•   Initiated by the Department of the Army in 2002

•   The Army Business Initiative Council (BIC) approved development and use of
    CMR on May 8, 2002. On September 2, 2002 it was approved by the Department
    of Defense BIC. The Office of Management and Budget approved this data
    collection requirement pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act on November
    24, 2003 (OMB number 0702-0120). Contractor labor hours and associated labor
    costs are to be treated as proprietary information when linked to contractor name
    and contract number.

•   The Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Manpower & Reserve Affairs)
    operates and maintains a secure Army data collection site where the contractor
    will report ALL contractor manpower (including subcontractor manpower)
    required for performance of contracts.
ACCOUNTING FOR CONTRACTOR SERVICES




                        Secretary of the Army
                          Signed 07 Jan 2005

                      Requirement to include CMR
                       in all new contract actions
                      60 days from date of memo
                          WHAT IS CMR?
The Contractor Manpower Reporting (CMR) system is a business process to
collect the following information:
  • Funding source
  • Contracting vehicle
  • Organization supported
  • Mission and function performed
  • Labor hours and costs for contracted efforts
• Contractors report actual labor hours, dollars, and other information directly
  from their accounting systems directly into this system, or through their Army
  Requiring Activity, using their existing timekeeping, personnel, accounting
  systems as well as information supplied with the contract.
• Existing financial management and procurement systems do not completely
  distinguish between goods and services, nor do they identify the specific
  organization for which the work is being performed.
         WHAT DOES CMR ACCOMPLISH?
•   CMR enables the Army to:

(1) Fully understand the composition of the Army workforce -military, civilian,
  and contractor, and allow for more informed workforce staffing and funding
  decisions

(2) Provide better oversight of our workforce, avoid duplication of effort, or
  shifting of in-house reductions to contract;

(3) Better account for and explain our total Army workforce.
          Why Contractor Manpower Reporting?

Contractor work force is nearly 1/3 of Title 10 manpower
      Documented at Unit Level,
           By Function
Military - 36%           Civilian - 32%
                                                 Functions
                                                Plan & Program
                                          Acquire & Sustain Personnel
                                                    Training
            Contractor - 32%              Acquire & Sustain Equipment
      Currently No Visibility by             Installation Operations
      Organization or Function
                                            Information Management

                 WHEN TO INCLUDE CMR

  in ALL service contracts if any of the following is true:

• Army Dollars are funding the contract.

• Any Army missions are being supported by the contract.

• Any Army military, civilian or contractors are supported/benefit from the
