Contractor Purchasing System Review (CPSR)

The objective of a contractor purchasing system review (CPSR) is to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness with which the contractor spends Government funds and complies with Government policy when subcontracting. The review provides the administrative contracting officer(1) a basis for granting, withholding, or withdrawing approval of the contractor’s purchasing system. UMD undergoes an evaluation of its purchasing system every three or as required by the Federal Government.  See FAR Subpart 45 for additional information.
