NCAGE/CAGE[edit]

Each NATO member nation manages NCAGE identifications for entities in their country, and DLA/DLIS manages CAGE identifications using the Central Conrtactor Registry (CCR) for entities generally within the United States. NCAGE designations within the UK, for example begin with U or K and are followed by three alpha and one numeric character. US CAGE codes are 1 numeric, 3 alphanumeric and 1 numeric. The first character of a CAGE/NCAGE code will tell you whether it's a CAGE or an NCAGE and what country assigned the value.Gletiecq 20:43, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Centric[edit]

The last edit appears to have changed the bias in the article to an anglo-centric one. And introduced comment on the system not just the code. Not sure about the use of NCAGE in all my dealings with NSNs in the UK everbody calls it the CAGE Code.MilborneOne 13:00, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

I agree. Wikipedia is not supposed to be US-centric, but that doesn't mean the solution is to force a UK POV on to everything (the UK ain't the center of the world, either). I reverted the POV edit, and integrated the information in what I hope is a more balanced, international fashion. —DragonHawk (talk) 18:25, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Validation[edit]

I have a bunch of CAGE codes that appear to be invalid because leading and trailing zeros have been converted to alphabetic "O"s. Is there a reference somewhere that shows that this is categorically invalid? I would like to automatically invalidate these records. 192.91.171.36 (talk) 20:54, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
