Contractor Performance Assessment Report System (CPARS)

The Contractor Performance Assessment Report (CPAR) is an evaluation of specific elements of the contractor's performance. The assessment, made by the Procuring Contracting Officer, creates a record in the system, both positive and negative, on a given contract during a specific period of time.

The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 15.304, requires that past performance information be collected and used in source selection evaluations for competitive negotiated procurements. The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) mandated the use of a web-enabled application developed by the Navy in response to a DoD directive requiring the collection and use of past performance information. This application entitled Contractor Performance Assessment Report System (CPARS) is an automated input system for contractor performance information that is now being used by all supply centers throughout DLA and the Military Services.

The Subsistence Directorate began compliance with the CPARS requirement by implementing its usage on October 2001. Ms. Elizabeth Romano, Chief of the Subsistence Support Office, Directorate of Procurement Management, presented the CPARS/DoD PPIRS topic at the Subsistence Worldwide Customer Conference in April 2002.
