The Defense Logistics Agency procures, manages, stores, and distributes almost every consumable item the military needs to operate. Commodities include everything from maritime and land weapons systems support to medical supplies. The following links provide information on how to do business with DLA, solicitations for work and contracting services.

CAGE Codes
DLA Logistics Information Service has sole responsibility for assigning and maintaining the CAGE Code Master File. The CAGE Code is a five position code that identifies contractors doing business with the Federal Government, NATO member nations, and other foreign governments. The CAGE Code is used to support a variety of mechanized systems throughout the government and provides for a standardized method of identifying a given facility at a specific location. The code may be used for a facility clearance, a pre-award survey, automated Bidders Lists, identification of Debarred Bidders, fast pay processes, etc.

NOTE CONCERNING CCR AND CAGE CODES: Registration in the CCR database is required prior to the award of any contract, basic agreement, blanket ordering agreement or blanket purchasing agreement unless the award results from a solicitation issued on or before May 31, 1998. Having a CAGE Code alone is no longer sufficient to qualify a contractor to do business with The Federal Government. If you do not have a CAGE Code, one will be assigned to you upon completion of your CCR registration.

Contracting
To be considered for an award, you will need to be registered in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR). Access the CCR Web site for online registration and additional information on CCR.
