Abstract : The purpose of the Defense Program of Contractor Performance Evaluation is to provide an orderly and uniform method of determining and recording the effectiveness of contractors in meeting their contractual commitments under contracts for advanced development, engineering development and operational-systems development. The existence of this procedure will increase the importance to the contractor of satisfying his agreements in regard to cost, schedule and technical performance. The Program provides a long-term incentive to contractors by creating within the government a 'memory' of their performance and a means for considering his record in future actions relating to source selection.
