“Over the past several years, the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) has worked with agency Chief Acquisition Officers (CAOs) and Senior Procurement Executives (SPEs) to improve the value of contractor performance assessments and increase the transparency of data about contractor integrity. Through these efforts, our past performance systems and regulations now support a single repository of this important information, contractor integrity information is now publicly available, and new data management tools have been developed to help agencies improve their reporting. These and other efforts have set a strong foundation for providing contracting officers (COs) important information about contractors when making source selection and award decisions. However, agencies must increase their use of these tools, as under reporting performance information leaves the government vulnerable to poor acquisition outcomes in the future.”
