adding at the end the following new subsection:
    ``(p) Database, Analysis, and Annual Report With Respect to Bundled 
Contracts.--
            ``(1) Bundled contract defined.--In this subsection, the 
        term `bundled contract' includes--
                    ``(A) each contract that meets the definition set 
                forth in section 3(o) regardless of whether the 
                contracting agency has conducted a study of the effects 
                of the solicitation for the contract on civilian or 
                military personnel of the United States; and
                    ``(B) each new procurement requirement that permits 
                the consolidation of two or more procurement 
                requirements.
            ``(2) Database.--
                    ``(A) In general.--Not later than 180 days after 
                the date of the enactment of this subsection, the 
                Administrator of the Small Business Administration 
                shall develop and shall thereafter maintain a database 
                containing data and information regarding--
                            ``(i) each bundled contract awarded by a

                        been displaced as a prime contractor as a 
                        result of the award of such a contract.
            ``(3) Analysis.--For each bundled contract that is to be 
        recompeted as a bundled contract, the Administrator shall 
        determine--
                    ``(A) the amount of savings and benefits (in 
                accordance with subsection (e)) achieved under the 
                bundling of contract requirements; and
                    ``(B) whether such savings and benefits will 
                continue to be realized if the contract remains 
                bundled, and whether such savings and benefits would be 
                greater if the procurement requirements were divided 
                into separate solicitations suitable for award to small 
                business concerns.
            ``(4) Annual report on contract bundling.--
                    ``(A) In general.--Not later than 1 year after the 
                date of the enactment of this paragraph, and annually 
                in March thereafter, the Administration shall transmit 
                a report on contract bundling to the Committees on 
                Small Business of the House of Representatives and the 
                Senate.
                    ``(B) Contents.--Each report transmitted under 
                subparagraph (A) shall include--
