The Commerce Standard Acquisition and Reporting System (CSTARS) is an enterprise-wide procurement system supporting the underlying standard acquisition business process for the Department of Commerce. CSTARS is an IT-enabled tool that DoC acquisition professionals use to provide the highest level of customer service for acquiring products and services. CSTARS is currently in production at the Office of the Secretary (OS), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Bureau of the Census (BOC).

CSTARS can be used to create requisitions, review and approve documents, create purchase requests, build procurement plans, manage vendors - utilizing the Central Contractor Registry, create solicitiations, create awards, provide reports, and monitor workload. The program maintains strong sponsorship and support from the Deputy Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Deputy Chief Information Officer (CIO), and the Department's Procurement Executive. Monthly user group meetings are held at the various user locations to resolve outstanding issues, and maintain user participation and ownership.
