Wouldn't the CMRA be applicable to this since the original warranty that came with the original equipment expired well over 3 years ago? Wouldn't I also need to use the Service Contract Act on this?
There are multiple contracts in CHESS, for example services or hardware. In this case it will depend on which contractual vehicle you wrote the order off of. If the contract has 52.237-4511 CONTRACTOR MANPOWER REPORTING, the contractor will need to do the report their time, if it doesn't the contractor does not. Below is an example of the clause located in previous CHESS service contracts.

The contractor shall report ALL contractor labor hours (including subcontractor labor hours) required for performance of services provided under this contract for the year via a secure data collection site. The contractor is required to completely fill in all required data fields using the following web address: http://www.ecmra.mil/, and then click on "Department of the Army CMRA" or the icon of the DoD organization that is receiving or benefitting from the contracted services.
Reporting inputs will be for the labor executed during the period of performance during each Government fiscal year (FY), which runs October 1 through September 30. While inputs may be reported any time during the FY, all data shall be reported no later than October 31 of each calendar year, beginning with 2013. Contractors may direct questions to the help desk by clicking on "Send an email" which is located under the Help Resources ribbon on the right side of the login page of the applicable Service/Components CMR website.
