SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    The Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number is the nine-digit

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. The majority 
of offerors submit their DUNS through CCR as required by FAR 52.204-7,
