Auto-filing of Award Forms in the ECF
Attention GSA Users: All existing award forms have been filed in the ECF as of 31 Jan 2014.
As we continue to move toward complete electronic contract filing, existing signed award forms (i.e. 300, 30, 1449, 1155, and 26) within the applications are being rendered as PDFs and filed in the Electronic Contract File (ECF) under the appropriate 'tab' (either "Award Documents" or "Contract Modifications") with the appropriate 'category' and all other necessary meta-data for the attachment. This ensures a more complete contract file as we prepare for eventual integration with GSA's repository for all acquisition documentation, the Enterprise Content Management System (ECMS). The enhancement also ensures that as new awards are signed they will also be auto-filed in the ECF as well.
New Awards and Mods: You will continue to be able to create, edit, and sign award forms as normal. As new awards and mods are signed, the system will generate and file a PDF version of the award form in the ECF immediately following the signature by the Contracting Officer. These attachments will appear within the ECF within a few moments after signature.
Existing Awards and Mods: You will continue to be able to view signed award forms as normal. Additionally, existing award forms are now rendered as PDFs and auto-filed in the ECF. You will be able to download the PDF versions from the ECF as they are rendered and filed.
This enhancement does not affect Clients or Contractors (as the ECF is accessible to GSA Users only).
