On December 16, 2009, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (“Consolidated Appropriations Act”), Public Law 111-117, became law. Section 743(a) of the Consolidated Appropriations Act titled, “Service Contract Inventory Requirement,” requires agencies to submit to the Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”) an annual inventory of service contracts awarded or extended through the exercise of an option on or after April 1, 2011, and describes the contents of the inventory. The contents of the inventory include:
(A) A description of the services purchased by the executive agency and the role the services played in achieving agency objectives, regardless of whether such a purchase was made through a contract or task order;
(B) The organizational component of the executive agency administering the contract, and the organizational component of the agency whose requirements are being met through contractor performance of the service;

Section 743(a)(3)(A) through (I) of the Consolidated Appropriations Act. Section 743(c) of the Consolidated Appropriations Act requires agencies to “publish in the Federal Register a notice that the inventory is available to the public.”
Consequently, through this notice, we are announcing that the CPSC's service contract inventory for FY 2011 is available to the public. The inventory provides information on service contract actions over $25,000 that we made in FY 2011. The information is organized by function to show how contracted resources are distributed throughout the CPSC. We developed the inventory in accordance with guidance issued on December 19, 2011 by the OMB. The OMB guidance is available at: http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/procurement/memo/service-contract-inventory-guidance.pdf.
