The Naval Sea Logistics Center Portsmouth provides supplier performance and material quality support/services across a customer base that includes the Department of the Navy (DON), Joint Services, Department of Defense (DoD) as well as Federal and Civil Agencies.
Office personnel provide a broad range of analytical, technical, and project management expertise in evaluating material quality assurance and/or supplier performance programs to include management of automated information systems in support of these efforts. The office is proactive in collecting, compiling, and providing data for both the acquisition and technical communities to:
- facilitate and enhance assessment of supplier performance and material quality;
- apply this information in the product and services acquisition process and contract award decisions; and
- provide senior officials with relevant decision information on supplier performance to prompt policy and operational changes, revise technical requirements, and re-engineer business processes.
DoD PIV-Auth Certificate
The DoD is in the process of changing the certificates that are on the Common Access Card (CAC). The CAC certificates that are available to login to CPARS are the following:
- Identity (ID)
- Signature (Email)
- Authentication (PIV_Auth)
As of 31 July 2019, the ID and Email certificates will no longer be accepted and only the PIV_Auth certificate can be used to login to CPARS.
DoD Users: All CAC users that received their card before 24 February 2018 will need to activate the new PIV_Auth certificate. Instructions to activate the certificate or verify that it has been activated can be found on the Navy Infosec Website (https://infosec.navy.mil/PKI/usn_piv_activation.pdf). CAC users who received their card after 24 February 2018 should already have this certificate activated and no further action is needed.
Note that this only applies to CAC users. DoD ECA and Federal PIV certificates are unaffected by this change.
Contractor Performance Assessment and Reporting System (CPARS) hosts a suite of web-enabled applications that are used to document contractor and grantee performance information that is required by Federal Regulations. FAR Part 42 identifies requirements for documenting contractor performance assessments and evaluations for systems, non-systems, architect-engineer, and construction acquisitions.
Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS) is a web-enabled application that is used to collect contractor and grantee performance information including Terminations for Cause or Default, Defective Cost and Pricing Data, Determinations of Non-Responsibility, Terminations for Material Failure to Comply (grants), Recipient Not Qualified Determinations (grants), DoD Determination of Contractor Fault and Administrative Agreements.
Product Data Reporting and Evaluation Program (PDREP) is the Department of the Navy program that supports requirements regarding the reporting, collection and use of supplier performance information identified in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) and Navy regulations. PDREP supports Navy management of the supply chain ensuring first time quality and on-time delivery of materials for both critical and non-critical applications. PDREP promotes continuous process improvement for increased material readiness and decreased deficiency issues, providing an overall cost savings to DoD and the Navy.
Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS) Mission: “Guiding the DoD in Responsible Acquisition Decisions”. Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS) is a web-enabled enterprise application that gathers, processes, and displays data about the performance of suppliers. SPRS is the Department of Defense’s single, authorized application to retrieve suppliers’ performance information. The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Subpart 213.1 requires contracting officers to consider this data for supply contracts valued at less than or equal to $1 million.
