The Department of Defense (DoD) has established a Central Contractor Registration (CCR) database to facilitate doing business with DoD activities. This database will act as a repository of information on all companies who are currently seeking to do business with DoD.
To alleviate the potential for missed valuable business opportunities, it is MANDATORY that all vendors be registered under the CCR program. Those vendors who are not registered will not be awarded DoD contracts.
Registrations entered via the CCR website are processed in 24-48 hours and notified via email when active.
To register in the CCR Program database, select from the following options:
•If you are EDI-capable through a DoD-certified Value-Added Network (VAN), you can register using an 838 (Trading Partner Profile) transaction set (this is the recommended route for EDI-capable companies and is the quickest and easiest method)
•You can register on-line by completing an electronic questionnaire at the CCR Web site: http://www.ccr.gov/
•Registration applications and information packets may be obtained by calling the DoD CCR Assistance Center:
