The GSA/FAS - Office of Information Technology uses the web-enabled Contractor
Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS) to record contractor performance
information. A CPARS record is required for any Services and/or Information Technology
contract with a value greater than or equal to $1Million.
CPARS assesses a contractor's performance and provides a record, both positive and
negative, on a given contractor during a specific period of time. Each assessment is based on
objective facts and supported by program and contract management data, such as cost
performance reports, customer comments, quality reviews, technical interchange meetings,
financial solvency assessments, construction/production management reviews, contractor
operations reviews, functional performance evaluations, and earned contract incentives.
The CPARS record allows contractors visibility into the assessments and the opportunity to
electronically submit comments and indicate concurrence or non-concurrence with the
overall evaluation. Completed past performance assessments are automatically uploaded to
PPIRS for use in best value evaluations by source selection official across the Federal
Government. Please refer to the CPARS website located at for additional information on CPARS
