The Naval Sea Logistics Center (NSLC), Detachment Portsmouth developed the Contractor Evaluation System (CES) as an easier way to evaluate potential contractors. The system includes inputs from many sources including Material Inspection Records, Product Quality Deficiency Reports (PQDRs), Surveys, Test Reports, and Special Quality Data.
The CES is a standardized database used to collect and process past history on contractor performance by commodity, via the Federal Supply Classification. Users such as quality assurance and technical personnel can retrieve a profile on each contractor’s performance. The CES can also generate summary and detail reports. Data on subcontractors is provided by the prime contractor through NSLC, Detachment Portsmouth’s Navy/Prime Contractor Partnership Program.
The contractor quality history is used to ensure that contracts are not awarded to contractors with a previous history of providing unsatisfactory products. The history also helps determine what actions would be necessary to assure product quality if the contract were awarded, as well as what additional expenses should be included in the potential contractor’s bid to account for any oversight costs.
