Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS)

Last Updated : 03/27/2014

​According to their website, “CPARS hosts a suite of web-enabled applications that are used to document contractor and grantee performance information that is required by Federal Regulations.  FAR Part 42 identifies requirements for documenting contractor performance assessments and evaluations for systems, non-systems, architect-engineer, and construction acquisitions.  FAR Part 42 also requires documenting additional contractor performance information in the Federal Awardee Performance & Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), including Terminations for Cause or Default, DoD Determination of Contractor Fault and Defective Cost or Pricing Data and to make the information available in the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS). FAR Part 9 identifies requirements for Contracting Officers to enter Determinations of Non-Responsibility in FAPIIS. The Grant Community is also required to utilize FAPIIS to document Terminations for Material Failure to Comply and Recipient Not Qualified Determinations. The CPARS applications are designed for UNCLASSIFIED use only. Classified information is not to be entered into these applications."
