NOTE: The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) requires that contractors be registered in the Central Contractors Registration Database and the On-Line Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA) database, prior to being awarded a contract. The first step to register is to obtain a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, which is a unique nine-character identification number provided by the commercial company Dun and Bradstreet (D&B). To request a DUNS number call D&B at the toll free number 1-866-705-5711 or register on-line at http://www.dnb.com/ccr/register.html. Obtaining a DUNS number through this process is free of charge. After obtaining your DUNS number register in CCR and OCRA by visiting the two following websites: http://www.ccr.gov and http://orca.bpn.gov. The CCR Customer Assistance Center can be contacted toll free at: 1-888-227-2423. It behooves anyone who is submitting a bid to begin this process as soon as possible since it can take several days to complete. If the low apparently successful bidder does not become registered in both the CCR and the ORCA database within three business days of being notified of its successful bid, the Contracting Officer will proceed to award to the next otherwise successful registered bidder. Processing time, which normally takes 48 hours, should be taken into consideration when registering. Bidders who are not registered should consider applying for registration immediately upon receipt of this solicitation. If you are not interested in submitting a bid, no response is necessary.
