Register Your Business in the CCR: A Government Contracting First Step

Register Your Business in the CCR: A Government Contracting First StepIn 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.  

Have you already registered for the CCR?  We’d love to hear your experience!
