The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Contractor Performance System (CPS) is a multi-agency shared file used to collect, maintain, and disseminate contractor performance evaluations for Federal departments/agencies. The Office of Acquisition Management and Policy, Office of Administration, Office of the Director/NIH, is responsible for the design, development, and implementation of this system as well as its oversight and management. The NIH Center for Information Technology provides all technical support for the NIH CPS.
The CPS is an Internet based system for capturing, maintaining, and disseminating contractor performance evaluations on quality of products/services, cost control, timeliness, business practices, and customer satisfaction throughout the Federal Government's acquisition offices worldwide. Only authorized Federal acquisition personnel have unlimited access to the NIH CPS and can retrieve evaluations for use in the contract award process.
