The report templates and user guides set out the reporting requirements for primary contractors relating to Qualifying Defence Contracts (QDCs) and Qualifying Subcontracts (QCSs) under the Defence Reform Act and Single Source Contracting Regulations 2014. They assist contractors in completing the statutory reports required for QDCs and QSCs.
The report templates directly follow the requirements set out in the Regulations for each report, while the user guides provide guidance on how to complete the information required by the template.
A year after they were originally published, the SSRO has published ‘Version 2’ of the report templates and user guides.
In addition, the SSRO has updated all 17 user guides. The most commonly used user guides (the Contract Reporting Plan, Contract Pricing Statement, Contract Notification Report and the Quarterly Contract Report) now include screen shots of the report templates to further assist contractors in completing the reports. An example is shown below.
