DFARS 204.404-70(a) prescribes use of the clause at DFARS 252.204-7000, Disclosure of Information, in contracts that require the contractor to access or generate unclassified information that may be sensitive and inappropriate for release to the public. The clause requires the contractor to obtain approval of the contracting officer before release of any unclassified contract-related information outside the contractor's organization, unless the information is already in the public domain. DFARS 204.603(1) prescribes use of the provision at DFARS 252.204-7001, Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) Code Reporting, in solicitations when CAGE codes for potential offerors are not available to the contracting officer. The provision requires an offeror to enter its CAGE code on its offer. If an offeror does not have a CAGE code, the offeror may request one from the contracting officer.
Affected Public: Business or Other For-Profit; Not-For-Profit Institutions.
Frequency: On Occasion.
Respondent's Obligation: Required to Obtain or Retain Benefits.
