DLA set to expire CAGE codes
By Information Operations Strategic Communications | August 11, 2016
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 Aug. 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.
“Taking action to expire CAGE codes is a step in the right direction for data quality,” Smith said. “Requiring customers to renew their business information through an update to their CAGE record on a regular basis is good business for all. Ultimately, the goal is to provide current and correct information to everyone using this data.” More information
