*The DUNS number is a unique nine-character number that identifies your organization. It is a tool of the federal government to track how federal money is distributed. Most large organizations, libraries, colleges and research universities already have DUNS numbers. Ask your grant administrator or chief financial officer to provide your organization's DUNS number.
If your organization does not have a DUNS number, use the Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) online registration to receive one free of charge.
