A Department Of Defense (DoD) PKI Certificate is required for all DoD employees accessing CPARS and FAPIIS. Non-DoD Government users may access CPARS and FAPIIS using a Personal Identify Verfication (PIV) card or with a password for those that do not have a PIV. Contractors are also encouraged to obtain and use a certificate, although a password may be used in lieu of a certificate for those that do not wish to obtain a certificate.

Determine if you have a valid DoD PKI Certificate.

All DoD employees (military and Civilian), including DoD Contractors that are working on site (military/government facilities) or contractors working offsite using Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) are eligible to obtain certificates from DoD PKI. If the contractor doesn't work on site or with GFE they are encouraged to obtain and use a certificate from an External Certificate Authority (ECA). Non-DoD Government employees may use their PIV card.

For more information view DoD Instructions for PKI and PK.

External Certificate Authority
External Certificate Authorities (ECAs) provide digital certificates to the DoD's private industry partners, contractors using their own equipment or working in non-government facilities, allied partners, and other agencies.

We recognize that our user may have various Internet Browsers. It is our goal to provide users with a modern and up-to-date experience on the CPARS system.

To access the CPARS applications, you will need to have access to the internet along with the following:

  • CPARS fully supports the latest three major desktop versions of Internet Explorer, and the latest major desktop version of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Older browsers may still view CPARS, however users should expect mixed results. A "major version" refers to a full numeric release, like 9.0 and 10.0 (not minor releases like 9.2.x and 10.2.x).
  • The Adobe Acrobat Reader should be installed. This allows you to view and print the PDF attachments in CPARS and FAPIIS. The reader can be downloaded and installed from Adobe Acrobat.
     
    If you have any problems downloading or installing the reader, please contact our Technical Support.

If you have any questions about our Browsers Compatibility Statement or Internet Compliant Standards, please contact us.
