Procurement Information Circular
March 23, 2005
PURPOSE: To establish a method of providing accurate and current guidance to the Centers for reporting their procurement data to the Federal Procurement Data System.
REFERENCE: FAR Subpart 4.6 and NFS Subpart 1804.6, Contract Reporting.
BACKGROUND: Historically, occasional minor administrative changes to the Federal Procurement Data System necessitated frequent re-issuance of the Procurement Information Circular that provided highly detailed coding instructions. In order to avoid the administrative burden of those re-issuances, detailed current guidance will be continuously maintained at http://ec.msfc.nasa.gov/hq/library/FPDS-NG/index.html.
EFFECTIVE DATE: This PIC is effective as dated and shall remain in effect until canceled or superseded.
