Why was the SF 330 Part II incorporated in to ORCA?
To ease the burden on vendors, the government determined that the qualifications of A-E firms could be easily submitted via an electronic method. ORCA was chosen as the place to collect and store the 330 Part II information. Now a vendor can enter ORCA at any time and supply both their reps and certs and 330 Part II information. Since the site is available 24/7 the vendor can enter, update or change any of their information with the click of a mouse. If there is no change to the information posted, a company record remains active for 365 days. When a change is made, that record is archived and the current record becomes activated and the expiration date is reset for another 365 days. This reduces time spent and paper collected by both the government and the vendor.
