I tend not to recommend it. There are converters but the inherent differences can get you in trouble. Once you convert it and save it to Project Server, how will you update it? You can replace it I guess.

My recommendation is typically (always depends on the situation of course) to create a separate project that includes your deliverables, along with the key predecessors from the P6 project (assuming that’s the core project). Then have the sub-contractor provide you updates on only those key predecessors, that you then update your project manually (also using a filter that views only those tasks). If the tasks are few enough it isn’t hard. Either way, I’d try to be creative on it. Hope that helps…
