Abstract:

Confidence in a prospective contractors ability to perform satisfactorily is an important factor in making a best value source selection decision. One method of gaining this confidence is the evaluation of a prospective contractors performance on recently completed or ongoing contracts for the same or similar goods or services. Past Performance Information PPI motivates contractors to improve their performance because of the potential use of that information in future source selections. It is equally useful as a means of communication, providing feedback and additional performance incentives for ongoing contracts. Excellent past performance also indicates a heightened probability of delivery of high quality products, which are on time and within cost. Definitions of terms and references used in this guide are set forth in Appendix A.
