Register Your Business in the CCR: A Government Contracting First Step
In my last post, I described the necessity of a D-U-N-S number in government contracting. After you acquire a D-U-N-S number, you’re ready to register in the Central Contractor’s Registry (CCR). Registering your business in the CCR not only makes your company visible to the government, but it’s also a requirement according to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). So what do you need besides a D-U-N-S number to register? You need:
- CAGE Code
- Company and Corporate information
- Federal Tax Identification Number
- SBA-defined socioeconomic characteristics
- NAICS code
- Product Service code
- Federal Supply Classification code
- Financial information
- Point of Contact (POC) information
- Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) information
Registering in the CCR is an essential first step into government contracting. Below is a video from SBA, which will encourage your decision into seeking business with the government and help you brainstorm how to make yourself attractive to the government after you register.
