Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System

CPARS (Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System Exit Disclaimer: You Are Leaving www.ihs.gov) is a web-enabled application that collects contractor Past Performance Information (PPI) as required by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) for award actions valued over the simplified acquisition threshold. CPARS is a web-enabled application that collects and manages a library of automated contractor report cards. A report card assesses a contractor’s performance and provides a record, both positive and negative, on a given contract for a specific period of time. Each report card is based on objective facts and is supported by program and contract management data. Use of CPARS promotes report card consistency, increases data integrity, motivates improved contractor performance, and improves Government-Contractor communication.

CPARS is composed of three modules. The CPARS module assesses performance on contracts for Systems, Services, IT, and Operations Support. The Architect-Engineer Contract Administration Support System (ACASS) module assesses performance on Architect-Engineer contracts. The Construction Contractor Appraisal Support System (CCASS) module assesses performance on Construction contracts.
