The General Services Administration (GSA) no longer utilizes Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) reports to check the performance of companies wishing to sell to the federal government through the multiple award schedules (MAS) program.
Use of the D&B reports — known as Open Ratings Past Performance Evaluations — was discontinued in December.
MAS offerors now demonstrate their performance records through one of two means:
- Verifying in their eOffer submittal that they have three or more CPARS assessment reports that meet the solicitation criteria, or
- Submitting a past performance narrative and list of customer references as outlined in the solicitation.
If the offeror uses the second option, GSA will contact each customer reference and request they complete a past performance questionnaire. A copy of the questionnaire can be downloaded here: GSA MAS Past Performance Questionnaire.
