HI. I work for a small DoD prime contractor. We would like to hire an individual subject matter expert (not a company) to do some work on our contract. I am trying to determine if he absolutely has to have a CAGE code and be set up in SAM in order for me to subcontract with him (after approval of the Request for Consent, etc). I am finding conflicting information. The DAU Ask the Professor says "no" but I realize they are not always accurate over there. Anything definitive would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
The answer to my question is paritally within the topic "GSA Schedule CAGE Code Challenge" but not quite on point. Many of the larger companues have more than one CAGE and DUNS combinations. Somwehere along the line I picked up the attititude that if the GSA Schedule was awarded to Willy Coyote Inc. with a CAGE of 12345 and DUNS of 222 333 444 any orders placed by Roadrunner AFB against that schedule had to match the aforementioned. Now that CPARS validates the CAGE on the GSA Schedule CAR/FPDS/NG with the CAGE on the order, we're having a few issues becuase the award cites to a different CAGE than what is in FPDS and the contract specialists are running into a hard stop error when they try to a CPAR. My suggestion is to modify the CAGE code on the order to match what is on the schedule. Once the order is in FPDS with the correct CAGE it will update CPARS and all should be good from that point on. For what ever reason many of our awards use different CAGE codes than are on the schedules. Before I get any 'Deer in the head lights looks' and the urge to pummel someone, can anyone point to a reference that says what CAGE & DUNS combinations to use on a GSA order? Commons sense doesn't count as a reference. Thanks,
