Are you interested in reviewing or updating your reference number data in the Federal Cataloging System (FCS)? The reference number consists of a Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) Code and Part Number. The Interactive Government/Industry Reference Data Edit and Review (iGIRDER) program was introduced to allow authorized individuals the ability to review and submit for correction reference numbers using a web-based application that serves as both a maintenance tool and information source for U.S. manufacturers, vendors and suppliers on U.S. CAGE codes only. Non-U.S. CAGE Code users should obtain a subscription to the NATO Master Catalogue of References for Logistics (NMCRL) which will allow the company to request actions as a "Private User" on reference numbers bearing their company's NCAGE code. More information on NMCRL, it's capabilities and obtaining a subscription can be found at:
