Welcome to CCR

Introduction

The Central Contractor Registration (CCR) is the primary vendor database for the U.S. Federal Government. The CCR collects, validates, stores and disseminates data in support of agency acquisition missions.

Both current and potential government vendors are required to register in CCR in order to do be awarded contracts by the government. Vendors are required to complete a one-time registration to provide basic information relevant to procurement and financial transactions. Vendors must update or renew their registration annually to maintain an active status.

CCR validates the vendor’s information and electronically shares the secure and encrypted data with the federal agencies’ finance offices to facilitate paperless payments through electronic funds transfer (EFT). Additionally, CCR shares the data with government procurement and electronic business systems.

Please note that any information provided in your registration may be shared with authorized government offices. Registration does not, however, guarantee business with the government.

Who registers in CCR?

  • According to the FAR 4.1102 (October 1, 2003), "Prospective contractors shall be registered in the CCR database prior to award of a contract or agreement"
  • Prime contractors are not required to have their subcontractors register in CCR. If a prime's subcontractor wants to bid directly for contracts with the Government, they should register in the CCR.
  • EFT and assignment of claims as stated FAR 52.232-33 Para. H.:
    "EFT and assignment of claims. If the Contractor assigns the proceeds of this contract as provided for in the assignment of claims terms of this contract, the Contractor shall require as a condition of any such assignment, that the assignee shall register in the CCR database and shall be paid by EFT in accordance with the terms of this clause. In all respects, the requirements of this clause shall apply to the assignee as if it were the Contractor. EFT information that shows the ultimate recipient of the transfer to be other than the Contractor, in the absence of a proper assignment of claims acceptable to the Government, is incorrect EFT information within the meaning of paragraph (d) of this clause."
  • Until all intragovernmental transactions are routed through the Intragovernmental Transaction Exchange (IGTE), some government agencies may be required to register in the CCR as well. This may include agencies that receive payment via an electronic funds transfer (EFT) or whose trading partner (e.g., DoD, NASA) requires a CAGE code be submitted.

How to Register

Enter your registration on-line through the world wide web (www):

Step 1: For details on the information to gather before you register, see the section of this document, Information Needed to Register.

Step 2: Access the CCR online registration through the CCR homepage at http://www.ccr.gov. Click on "Start New Registration".

Step 3: Complete and submit the online registration. If you already have the necessary information on hand, the on-line registration takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, depending upon the size and complexity of your company.

Additional important information for Web users:
When you register via the Web, a temporary confirmation number will be assigned to you so that your application can be saved in the event you are unable to complete it during your initial online session. It is important that you write down your temporary confirmation number, as you must have it, along with your D-U-N-S number, to resume your application. Clicking "validate/save" will save the incomplete registration. A list of information you are missing will appear on the "Show Errors " list. Registrations-in-process are saved for up to 120 days for your convenience. Once your complete registration is submitted, the confirmation number becomes invalid. A Trading Partner Identification Number (TPIN) will replace it when the registration is active.

How to Know Your Registration Was Successful

You will be unable to submit your registration on-line unless all of the mandatory information is provided. You will be notified of missing information by a list of 'errors' on each page when you click "Validate/Save". Once you have provided the information click "Validate/Save" again to verify that all necessary fields are filled.

If your registration was submitted successfully then you will you receive two letters via U.S. mail or E-mail. This first notice is to welcome you to CCR and will include a copy of your registration. Please make sure you review the registration for accuracy.

The second notice contains your confidential Trading Partner Identification Number (TPIN). The TPIN is sent separately for security reasons. Receipt of your TPIN not only confirms that you are successfully registered in CCR, it is required to make or request any changes or updates to your active registration. The TPIN is your confidential password, to change your CCR information. The TPIN is not to be used on contracts or other government paperwork.

In addition to receiving these letters, you can verify the status of your registration on-line by visiting CCR's homepage at www.ccr.gov and clicking on "Search CCR". When prompted, enter your DUNS number and click "Search". The registration status is located at the top of the page.

Or

You may confirm your registration by calling the CCR Assistance Center at (888) 227-2423 or (269) 961-4725 internationally. The Interactive Voice Response (IVR) System for CCR Status allows a calling-party to check the status of their CCR registration based on entry of a DUNS number. Call 1-888-352-9333 - and select CCR from the Menu (Option 3)

Valid Statuses are:

Registered/Active
Pending: Registration is in process of being validated
Inactive: Registration has been cancelled or expired
Invalid: DUNS number is incorrect. Contact D&B to verify the DUNS number.

The calling party can always speak to a live agent for additional explanation.

How to Renew, Change or Cancel an Active Registration

Your Responsibilities

  • You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of your registration. You must use your DUNS number in conjunction with your TPIN number when making and/or requesting any changes to your profile.
  • You are responsible for updating all of your registration information as it changes
  • You must renew your registration at least once a year. If you do not renew your registration it will expire. An expired registration will affect your ability to conduct business (receive contract awards or payments) with the government.
  • Please remember that once you cancel your registration all payments, if ones are being made, will cease. A vendor must remain active in CCR until all payments are made to avoid discontinuation.
  • You may voluntarily cancel your registration at any time by going on line with your DUNS and TPIN or contacting the CCR Assistance Center at (888) 227-2423 or (269) 961-4725. If you cancel your registration, your information will be removed from the CCR database. If you cancel your registration by mistake, you may also call (888) 227-2423 or (269) 961-4725 to reinstate that registration.

To initiate any changes or submit a renewal:

Changes can be made to your registration by:

  1. Going to CCR's homepage http://www.ccr.gov and clicking on Active Registrations, Renew or Update.
  2. Enter your DUNS number and TPIN, then click "submit".
  3. Make the necessary changes then click the "validate/save" button for an update to register in the system.

To submit a renewal with no changes, follow the same steps listed above with the exception of making changes to your information. Reminder: you must click "validate/save" or the Renew Profile button in Registration Tools to activate the renewal, even if none of your information has changed. Please be aware that new requirements may have been implemented since your last visit. You may receive an error on your renewal if a new requirement isn't fulfilled.

Two ways to cancel an active registration:

  1. Go to www.ccr.gov and click on "Update your Registration". Enter your DUNS number and TPIN and click "submit". On the next screen click "Delete Profile" in the upper left corner to cancel your registration.
  2. Contact the CCR Assistance Center at (888) 227-2423 or (269) 961-4725 internationally.

Foreign Registrants

Reminder: Reminder: Foreign companies must first obtain a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) CAGE (NCAGE) code from the appropriate source. According to the FAR, if the contractor is working for a department under the Department of Defense umbrella, they will need to register in CCR for payment from DFAS.

The NCAGE code can be obtained directly from the Codification Bureau in your country. Please view the up-to-date list of countries and the information necessary to contact the Codification Bureau. If your organization does not already have an NCAGE assigned, for most countries you can obtain one by connecting to Form AC135. If you cannot submit this form by Internet, you can obtain an NCAGE by contacting the National Codification Bureau of the country where your organization is located. For a list of addresses, go to nato poc. Search for a CAGE Code on our website: http://www.dlis.dla.mil/cage_welcome.asp.

Information Needed to Register

*Items are mandatory

General Information: This section contains mandatory fields

*Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) Number: The Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number is a unique nine character identification number provided by the commercial company Dun & Bradstreet (D&B). Call D&B at 1-866-705-5711 if you do not have a DUNS number. The process to request a DUNS number takes about 10 minutes and is free of charge.

If you already have a DUNS number, the D&B representative will advise you over the phone. You must have a different 9 digit DUNS for each physical location/different address in your company as well as each legal division that may be co-located. When entering your DUNS number, enter only the numbers; do not include dashes. As a result of obtaining a DUNS number you might be included on D&B's marketing list that is sold to other companies. If you do not want your name/company included on this marketing list, D&B has asked that you contact them, anytime, at the same numbers noted above to request they be removed.

DUNS +4: The use of DUNS+4 numbers to identify vendors is limited to identifying different CCR records for the same vendor at the same physical location. For example a vendor could have two records for themselves at the same physical location to identify two separate bank accounts. Vendors wishing to register their subsidiaries and other entities, should ensure that each additional location obtains a separate DUNS number from Dun & Bradstreet at 1-866-705-5711. If you have questions regarding the use of DUNS +4 please contact our CCR Assistance Center at 1-888-227-2423.

CAGE Code - The Commercial And Government Entity (CAGE) Code is a five character ID number used extensively within the Department of Defense and NASA. Vendors with a U.S. address may submit the application without a CAGE Code if they do not have one. If your application does not contain a CAGE Code, one will be assigned to you. The CCR registration process will also verify existing CAGE Codes for all applicants. To speed up the process, make every effort to use a current CAGE Code in your application. You must have a separate CAGE Code for each physical location and separate division at the same physical location. Each separate CCR registration must have its own CAGE Code. If you think you have a CAGE Code, search the DLIS CAGE web at http://www.dlis.dla.mil/cage_welcome.asp Foreign vendors must include an NCAGE Code on the registration or it will be considered incomplete.

*Legal Business Name and Doing Business As (DBA) - Enter the legal name by which you are incorporated and pay taxes. If you commonly use another name, such as a franchise or licensee name, then include that in the DBA space below the Legal Business Name. Your legal business name as entered on the CCR registration MUST match the legal business name at Dun & Bradstreet. If the information does not match, your registration may be rejected during processing. Do not type "same" or "as shown above" in the DBA field.

*US Federal TIN - The Tax Identification Number (TIN) is the nine-digit number companies use for income tax purposes. If you do not know your TIN, contact the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) at 1-800-829-1040. If you operate as an individual sole proprietorship, you may use your Social Security Number if you do not have a TIN/EIN. If you are located outside the United States and do not pay employees within the U.S., you are not required to provide a TIN. When entering your TIN or SSN on the web site, enter only the numbers; do not include the dashes (Example: 123456789 not 123-45-6789) Note: Authority: 31 U.S.C. 7701 (c) (3) Principal Purpose(s). The TIN may be used by the Government to collect and report on delinquent amounts arising out of the offerer's relationship with the Government.

Division Name and Number: If you do business as a division of a larger company, use this space to indicate the proper name for your division. If some other identifier commonly distinguishes your division, enter that in the space on the right. Otherwise, leave blank.

*Physical Street Address 1: PO Box and c/o MAY NOT BE USED IN THIS SPACE. You must include a valid street address where your business is located. If you use a PO Box for correspondence, this may be included in the space allocated for "mailing address" under the tab "Address Info". Your street address, as entered on the CCR registration, MUST match the street address for which Dun & Bradstreet has you registered. If the information does not match, your registration may be rejected during processing. You may not register a branch of the business with the branch address and the headquarters DUNS number.

Physical Street Address 2: Use this space to continue your physical street address, if needed.

*City, State, Zip: The 9-digit zip code is mandatory. When entering the nine-digit zip code on the web, enter numbers only; do not include the dash. (Example 123456789 not 12345-6789)

*Country: Choose the appropriate country code abbreviation from the list provided.

Mailing Address Information: If you are unable to receive mail at your physical address enter a proper mailing address here. A Post Office Box is permissible. Any address used here will receive all CCR correspondence. If the Point of Contact is in a different location than the legal business address and wishes to receive the mail directly, please enter the appropriate address here.

*Date Business Started: Enter the date your business was started in its present form. This may be used to distinguish you from others with similar names. When entering the information on the web site, you must enter as mm/dd/yyyy. (Example: 01/01/1995)

*Fiscal Year End Close Date: Enter the day on which you close your fiscal year. For example, if you use the calendar year, this would be 12/31. When entering the information on the web site, you must enter as mm/dd.

*Average # of Employees and Annual Revenue - Be sure to provide accurate information about the number of employees and 3-year average annual receipts for your business, as these values can determine your business size classification. Annual revenue cannot be zero. You must enter a number. When entering revenue in the web site, enter numbers only, no dollar signs or commas.

Company Security Level: If applicable, choose the correct level of security for the facility.

Highest Employee security Level: If applicable, choose the highest level of security for an employee located at that facility.
