A CAGE (Commercial and Government Entity) code is a unique identifier assigned to suppliers, contractors, and entities doing business with the government. It’s primarily used in the United States by various government agencies, including the Department of Defense (DoD), NASA, and other federal civilian agencies.
This code helps in identifying and tracking companies and organizations that engage in government contracts, grants, or other agreements. It includes a five-character alphanumeric code that represents a specific entity.
Obtaining a CAGE code involves registration in the System for Award Management (SAM) database, and it’s crucial for businesses seeking to work with the government or obtain federal contracts.
