In making the determination of a contractor's responsibility, contracting officers must consider links to the Excluded Parties List System, the Past Performance information Retrieval System
and any other relevant past performance information.
The performance information on orders worth more than $100,000 must be reported to the Past Performance Information Retrieval System
, the governmentwide database.
In July 2002, the Past Performance Information Retrieval System
(PPIRS) became the single, authorized application providing past performance reports to the entire Federal acquisition community as a part of the President's e-Government Integrated Acquisition Environment (IAE) initiative.
For instance, the Past Performance Information Retrieval System
, maintained by the Defense Department, contains data on how well companies have lived up to the terms in their past contracts with the government.
The Past Performance Information Retrieval System
(PPIRS) is a government-wide portal through which contractors can access government performance assessments of their contracts.
