A. Purpose

    The Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number is the nine-digit 
identification number assigned by Dun and Bradstreet Information 
Services to an establishment. The Government uses the DUNS number to 
identify contractors in reporting to the Federal Procurement Data 
System (FPDS). The FPDS provides a comprehensive mechanism for 
assembling, organizing, and presenting contract placement data for the 
Federal Government. Federal agencies report data on all contracts in 
excess of the micro-purchase threshold to the Federal Procurement Data 
Center which collects, processes, and disseminates official statistical 
data on Federal contracting. Contracting officers insert the Federal 
Acquisition Regulation (FAR) provision at 52.204-6, Data Universal 
Numbering System (DUNS) Number, in solicitations they expect will 
result in contracts in excess of the micro-purchase threshold and do 
not contain FAR 52.204-7, Central Contractor Registration. This 
provision requires offerors to submit their DUNS number with their 
offer. If the offeror does not have a DUNS number, the provision 
provides instructions on obtaining one.
