SUMMARY: Addendum to the circular for "Processing of Transactions for Federal Grants" concerning the request for a DUNS number.

Informational circular 04-A-006 published on September 17, 2003 provided and revised the documentation required for federal grant moneys and contained documentation on the final revisions to Circular No. A-133. This informational circular also contained information concerning the Dun and Bradstreet (D&B) Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number. A policy directive was issued by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to implement the requirement for grant applicants to provide a DUNS number when applying for Federal grants or cooperative agreements on or after October 1, 2003. As previously stated a DUNS number must be included in every application for a new award or renewal of an award, whether an applicant is submitting a paper application or using the government-wide electronic portal (Grants.gov). Guidelines on how to obtain a DUNS number can be obtained at OMB's Grants.gov online portal. Applicants can receive a DUNS number at no cost by calling the toll free DUNS number request line at 1- 866-705-5711 or online at http://www.dnb.com/us/. Additional information has come to our attention since issuing informational circular 04-A-006 and applicants should note that obtaining a number through the Web site may take up to 30 days and the phone requests are processed within 24 hours.
