Regarding: FAR Case 2008-027

Dear Ms. Flowers:

The Center for American Progress Action Fund would like to submit comments on the proposed regulations (FAR Case 2008-027) to require the General Services Administration to establish and maintain a contractor responsibility database.

The new Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System is a step in the right direction. Contracting officers have for too long lacked access to important responsibility data, and the federal government thus continues to award new contracts to companies with a track record of legal violations. The new contractor responsibility database can help ensure that the federal government awards contracts to responsible companies.
