process by looking at the Navy's mandatory requirements for gathering past performance information and reviewing the current policies and practices for the collection and use of past performance information within two Department of the Navy buying commands. It then reviews the current practices of collection and use of past performance information within four firms in commercial industry, identifying any similar standards or guidance. The practices of the two "buying commands" are compared with the practices of the four commercial firms. Key findings of this study are 1) Government commands find it difficult to complete all past performance information requirements as regulated; 2) no set standards or prescribed guidance exist for commercial firms' collection of past performance information; 3) commercial firms employ practices that streamline the gathering and use of past performance information; 4) the Department of Navy could improve their use of past performance information by incorporating some of the commercial practices into their acquisition and contracting process.
