Past Performance Information Retrieval System


Screen Shot 2016-01-29 at 11.06.03 AMThe Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) is a web-enabled, enterprise application that provides timely and pertinent contractor past performance information to the Department of Defense (DoD) and Federal acquisition community for use in making source-selection decisions (e.g., awarding contracts). PPIRS assists acquisition officials by serving as the single source for contractor past performance data.

PPIRS consists of three components, Report Card (RC), Statistical Reporting (SR) and Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS). These three 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). The FAR requires federal agencies to post all contractor performance evaluations in PPIRS.

Government access is restricted to those individuals who are working on source selections. Contractors, who must be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) and also have a Marketing Partner Identification Number (MPIN), may view only their own data.

Access to FAPIIS is granted when approved for access to either PPIRS-RC or PPIRS-SR. The General Services Administration (GSA) and Integrated Acquisition Environment (IAE) sponsors PPIRS-RC; the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) sponsors the PPIRS SR, which the Naval Sea Logistics Center in Portsmouth administers.

All data in PPIRS is classified as Source Selection Sensitive and is not releasable unless directed by the agency who submitted the data. This policy is in accordance with FAR 42.1503(4)(d).
