Following the completion of the evaluation, the Evaluation COR/Manager and others involved in the evaluation should consider not just the content of the evaluation report, but what they have learned from the entire evaluation process that might help in conducting the next evaluation. An After-Action Review (AAR) is one formal means of capturing such lessons.
If the evaluation was contracted, the Evaluation COR should, when applicable, access the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS) to file a Contractor Performance Assessment Report within 60 days of the completed evaluation. CORs completing an assessment report should ensure that the report contains an accurate portrayal of the contractor’s performance. Contractors utilize the completed past performance reports when responding to solicitations. These reports are also used by Contract Officers and CORs when assessing the past performance of contractors and to incentivize contractors to produce superior products and services.
