Title: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2019-005, Update to Contract Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS)  

DoD, GSA, and NASA issued a final rule amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement changes regarding the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS). This rule establishes that the Contract Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS) is the official system for past performance information.   

Effective January 15, 2019, PPIRS was officially retired to conclude its merger with the CPARS. Data from PPIRS has been merged into, making CPARS the official system for past performance information. This merge simplifies functions such as creating and editing performance and integrity records, changes to administering users and running reports, generating performance records, and viewing/managing performance records.  Users will now have one location and one account to perform all functionality.
