Title: ●Construction and Architect-Engineer Services Performance Evaluation (DFARS Case 2010-D024) 
Abstract: This rule amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to remove the requirement to prepare contractor performance evaluations for construction and architect-engineer services by using DoD-unique forms. In 2010, consistent with the Office of Federal Procurement Policy memorandum dated July 29, 2008, Improving the Use of Contractor Performance Information, the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS) was named as the sole system for collecting past-performance information. As such, CPARS will support Governmentwide data collection requirements for contractor past performance reporting, to include construction and A&E contracts, and DFARS is being updated to delete the outdated procedures and references to the obsolete DoD forms. The clarifications proposed require no additional effort by contractors as the changes simply update the DFARS to reflect the current automated process being used. CPARS is already being used by DoD personnel to report construction and A&E services contractor past performance, and the DFARS is merely being updated to remove references to obsolete forms and procedures and reflect the current process. No start-up costs are expected as only Internet access is required should small entities elect to comment on their past performance rating in CPARS. Accordingly, any economic impact is expected to be minimal.
