This U.S. Department of Homeland Security memorandum discusses in detail, a class deviation for government contractors using the National Institute of Health's (NIH) Contractor Performance System (CPS). The purpose of this memorandum is: "To issue a class deviation from the requirements of Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) when using the National Institute of Health's (NIH) Contractor Performance system (CPS) for evaluation purposes. This class deviation is regarding the use of the SF 1420 and the SF 1421 for construction and Architect-Engineer (A-E) contracts. FAR 36.201 requires the use of SF 1420, Performance Evaluation (Construction) when evaluating a contractor's performance under a construction contract. FAR 36.604 requires the use of SF 1421, Performance Evaluation (Architect-Engineer), when evaluating a contractor's performance under an architect-engineer contract. NIH's CPS system provides a Contractor Performance Insert Form (evaluation form) for both construction and architect-engineer contracts. The CPS Contractor Performance Insert Forms include all the data elements required by the SF 1420 and SF 1421, therefore it is not necessary to complete the SF 1420 and SF 1421."
