Central Contractor Registration (CCR) System Shut Down
Thursday, May 17 2012 @ 09:51 AM CDT
The Central contractor registration system will shut down next Wednesday, May 23, 2012. Companies currently use the online database to update their contractor registration with the federal government, and is required for many who receive ARRA funds. The Washington Business Journal says, the General Services Administration is leading an effort to consolidate the various systems used for federal procurement into one: the System for Award Management. Ultimately, the new system will make life easier for contractors by allowing them to log in and enter their information into one online system rather than many.
