Government to Release Private Contractor Information Contained in FAPIIS

Jan.24.2011

On January 24, 2011, the FAR Council issued an interim rule to implement a congressional mandate that the public must have access to all information (excluding past performance reviews) in the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (“FAPIIS”), which was created in 2010 as a one-stop shop for contracting officers to review information about prospective contractors’ business ethics, integrity, and performance.  After April 15, 2011, the public will have access to contractor-provided information about criminal, civil, and administrative proceedings, as well as government-provided information about contract terminations for default or cause and suspension and debarment.
