DLA set to expire CAGE codes

August 30, 2016 in News

The Defense Logistics Agency is changing the way it manages Commercial and Government Entity codes by assigning an expiration date to all new or updated codes after August 25.

This is the first time in the 44 years since CAGE codes have been assigned that DLA will expire CAGE codes, and it will be accomplished in a phased approach, said Wyoma Smith, CAGE program manager in DLA Information Operations.

In the first phase, expiration dates will only be applied to domestic U.S. CAGE codes that are new or updated after August 25, Smith said. Records used in verification transactions will have an expiration date set if the record is saved. Records that are associated with System for Award Management registration will have their expiration dates reset based on the date of an update or assignment of a CAGE code, Smith said. For example, if a customer renews their registration every year, their expiration date will reset every year. Or, if a customer renews an expired SAM registration, CAGE will pick up that data and reset the expiration date.
