    Is there a Government system which allows for the Government or the Public to look up cure notice data on contractors? I assume that if the answer is no, then this information would need to be FOIA'd in order to obtain this kind of information.


    Answer

    There is really only one repository within the Government that is mandatory to report performance.  This system is the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS).  We use many different systems such as the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS) to feed info into the PPIRS system.  All information in the PPIRS system is considered source selection sensitive.  Therefore Government personnel would not even be access the info without a need to know or an active source selection.

     

    There is a public access to the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS) section of PPIRS.  This will only tell you the number (not details) of more serious actions such as:

    Administrative Agreement

    Defective Pricing

    DoD Determination of Contractor Fault

    Non-Responsibility Determination

    Recipient Not-Qualified Determination

    Termination for Cause

    Termination for Default

    Termination for Material Failure to Comply

     

    If you were to submit a FOIA request, cure notice information would be redacted from the request.  Therefore, there is really no way for a contractor to retrieve another contractor’s cure notice info, but if the contractor did not cure the situation and it led to a Termination for Default, limited info will be available in the FAPIIS system.
