    Past Performance

    CPARS (Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System)

    Past performance evaluations (PPEs) are usually electronically captured, kept and communicated. The process begins when an AO inputs adjectival ratings – Exceptional, Very Good, Satisfactory, Marginal, Unsatisfactory – and supporting narrative from a Contractor Performance Assessment Report (CPAR) which uploads to a database, the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS). Data from CPARS and other reports of “adverse actions” such as non-responsibility determinations or terminations for default flow to a separate database, the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS). CPARS and PPIRS are not publicly available but accessible only by source selection officials to use in making award decisions. But the public can access a separate final database called the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS). FAPIIS contains “adverse action” reports from PPIRS, plus other information related to “business integrity” including listings on the System for Award Management, administrative agreements with Suspension and Debarment Officials and records of certain criminal, civil and administrative proceedings.
