Effective July 1, 2009, the FAR requires federal agencies to post all contractor performance evaluations in PPIRS.
In May, 2010, the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) and the Acquisition Committee for eGovernment (ACE) determined that the Defense (DoD) Contractor Performance Assessment System (CPARS) will be utilized as the single past performance reporting system federal-wide to collect and transmit performance evaluations to PPIRS. Further, no new systems will be built. Agencies should not invest any resources into developing or improving a capability for past performance reporting. This decision was based on NIH's retirement of CPS, the on-going efforts to establish a standard method and criteria for conducting past performance reporting, and the recent implementation of Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS) which already requires Agency use of CPARS as the data entry module.

Providing Information for Best Value Awards!
Welcome to the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS). In July 2002, DoD endorsed the Past Performance Information Retrieval System as the single, authorized application to retrieve contractor performance information. PPIRS is a web-enabled, enterprise application that provides timely and pertinent contractor past performance information to the Department of Defense and Federal acquisition community for use in making source selection decisions. PPIRS assists acquisition officials by serving as the single source for contractor past performance data. Confidence in a prospective contractor's ability to satisfactorily perform contract requirements is an important factor in making best value decisions in the acquisition of goods and services. PPIRS consists of two components, Report Card (RC) and Statistical Reporting (SR). Both components support the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) requirement to consider past performance information prior to making a contract award (FAR Parts 9, 13, 15, 36 and 42).
Government access is restricted to those individuals who are working on source selections, to include contractor responsibility determinations. Contractors may view only their own data. A contractor must be registered in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) system and must have created a Marketing Partner Identification Number (MPIN) in the CCR profile to access their PPIRS information.
Access to FAPIIS is granted when approved for access to either PPIRS-RC or PPIRS-SR.
PPIRS is sponsored by the DOD E-Business Office and administered by the Naval Sea Logistics Center Portsmouth.
