Past performance is vitally important to contractors that work with the federal government. Often times too late, contractors will find out that a bad past performance rating can kill what would have been an otherwise successful bid. Many contractors also do not realize that the federal government's official repository of past performance, the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System or CPARS, provides a process for reviewing, responding, and concurring/non-concurring with the government's ratings and narratives. Further, contractors are unaware that a bad past performance rating can be challenged as part of a claim.

In this presentation, we will cover: 
• What is past performance information? 
• How can I protect my past performance and defend it? 
• What is CPARS and what is the process for federal government past performance reviews? 
• How do I challenge a bad past performance rating? 

Please join government contracts attorney Paul Hawkins to learn more about the tools you may have at your disposal to protect this very important part of your business.
