Improving Contractor Past Performance Assessments (05/16/2017)

Reference: DPAP memorandum (05/16/2017)

Summary:  The Department of Defense Inspector General (DoDIG) recently issued Report No. DODIG-2017-081, Summary of Audits on Assessing Contractor Performance: Additional Guidance and System Enhancements Needed" dated May 9, 2017. The report identified shortcomings in the preparation of contractor performance assessment reports (PARs) and identified potential improvements for the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS). As a reminder, the Federal Acquisition Regulation requires agencies to assign responsibility and management accountability for the completeness of past performance submissions. Components should review their processes and procedures to ensure quality control and compliance with past performance reporting requirements. Assessing officials should complete the CPARS Quality and Narrative Writing training to periodically re- familiarize themselves with the requirements. Further details are provided within the memorandum.
