The numbers are distributed by the private company Dun & Bradstreet (D&B). Companies interested in contracting with the government must have a different 9-digit D-U-N-S number for each physical location and different address in the company, as well as each legally distinct division that may be co-housed at the same address or location.Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) –FDOT DUNS # Definitions
North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code: The NAICS codes are used as a categorization system within contracting data to give a higher level of detail about the type of economic or industrial output being done under a contract. These codes were created jointly by the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and are assigned by the federal government according to the NAICS. Example – – = Highway, Street, and Bridge Construction – = Bus and Other Motor Vehicle Transit Systems Definitions
