Software Resources Data Report


The Software Resources Data Report (SRDR) collects software metrics data to supplement actual Contractor Cost Data Reporting (CCDR) cost data to provide a better understanding and improved estimating of software-intensive programs.


The Defense Cost Resource Center (DCRC) is the OSD office responsible for administering the SRDR system. Access to SRDR data is readily provided by the DCARC to DoD government cost analysts and sponsored support contractors, who are registered users.


See: Cost and Software Data Reporting


General Requirements [1]
SRDRs are required on all major contracts and subcontracts, regardless of contract type, for contractors developing/producing software elements within Acquisition Category I and IA programs and pre-Major Defense Acquisition Program (MDAP) and pre-Major Automated Information System (MAIS) programs subsequent to Milestone A approval for any software development element with a projected software effort greater than $20M (Then year dollars). The SRDR requirement on high-risk or high-technical-interest contracts priced below $20M is left to the discretion of the DoD Program Manager (PM) based upon the advice of the Cost Working-level Integrated Product Team (CWIPT). These requirements must also be approved by the Chair, Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation (CAPE).


Level of Reporting [1]
The program office may choose to combine a set of smaller releases within a contract into a single release for reporting purposes. Separate software element developments within a single contract may be reported on separately or may be aggregated at the discretion of the DoD PM.


Report Timing [1]
Within 60 days of contract award, the software developer shall be required to submit an SRDR Initial Developer Report for the entire software product, customized as agreed to by the DoD PM.   The software developer also shall be required to submit an SRDR Initial Developer Report for each deliverable software release or element within 60 days of the beginning of its development. In addition, the software developer shall be required to submit an “as built” SRDR Final Developer Report, customized as agreed to by the CWIPT, within 60 days after delivery of each software release or element to the U.S. Government.


Formats and Instructions
SRDRs consist of the sample SRDR formats which are contained within the report instructions as follows: [1]
