a. As prescribed in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 42.1502 and 42.1503, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) evaluates contractor past performance on all contracts that exceed $150,000. The FAR requires that the Contractor be provided an opportunity to comment on past performance evaluations prior to each report closing. To fulfill this requirement VA uses an online database, Contractor Performance Assessment System (CPARS), which is maintained by the Naval Sea Logistics Center in Portsmouth, Virginia. CPARS has connectivity with the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) database, which is available to all Federal agencies. PPIRS is the system used to collect and retrieve performance assessment reports used in source selection determinations and completed CPARS report cards transferred to PPIRS. CPARS also includes access to the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS). FAPIIS is a web-enabled application accessed via CPARS for contractor responsibility determination information.
b. The Contractor will have an opportunity to review their ratings/comments, under the step “Contractor Comments” in CPARS. You will be notified via email by the CPARS system to review the report and provide comments. Each contractor whose contract award is estimated to exceed $100,000 may register with CPARS database at the following web address: www.cpars.gov in order to review the past performance evaluations. Help in registering can be obtained by contacting Customer Support Desk
