GSA Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) Next Generation (NG)
Data Element Dictionary


Version 1.0




September 02, 2003

















The FPDS-NG User's Manual and Data Dictionary were developed to familiarize users with FPDS-NG data requirements and assist them with FPDS-NG data entry.  They are not intended to serve as a substitute for the Federal Acquisition Regulation, Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement, or Department/Agency procedures.  They do not relieve FPDS-NG users from reviewing these regulations and procedures which form the basis and set the context for FPDS-NG data entry requirements.  If an FPDS-NG user has questions regarding how a particular procurement was conducted, he/she should discuss them with the servicing contracting officer or procurement policy officials prior to attempting to enter data into FPDS-NG.

Information entered into FPDS-NG is post-award information. Contract formation or pre-award decisions and actions, such as the type of contract to be used, applicability of certain statutes, extent of competition, must be concluded prior to contract award and therefore, prior to FPDS-NG data entry.  FPDS-NG is designed to capture and summarize a variety of information on pre-award decisions and actions after the fact. This manual is not intended to guide contracting personnel's pre-award decisions which are directed by regulation and procedure.

Definition: A multi-year contract means a contract for the purchase of supplies or services for more than 1, but not more than 5, program years. Such contracts are issued under specific congressional authority for specific programs. A multi-year contract may provide that performance under the contract during the second and subsequent years of the contract is contingent upon the appropriation of funds, and (if it does so provide) may provide for a cancellation payment to be made to the contractor if appropriations are not made. The key distinguishing difference between multi-year contracts and multiple year contracts is that multi-year contracts buy more than 1 year's requirement (of a product or service) without establishing and having to exercise an option for each program year after the first.
Instruction: Enter code Y when the definition for multiyear contract applies. Do not report contracts containing options as multiyear unless the definition above applies to the contract.

A requirements contract provides for filling all actual purchase requirements of designated Government

A Requirements IDC or Multi-Agency Contract is a contract for all of the agency’s requirement for the supplies or services specified, and effective for the period stated, in the IDC or Multi-Agency Contract. After award, the contract is a mandatory source for the agency for the supplies or services specified. The quantities of supplies or services specified in the IDC or Multi-Agency Contract are estimates only and are not purchased by this contract. Except as this contract may otherwise provide, if the Government's requirements do not result in orders in the quantities described as "estimated" or "maximum" in the Schedule, that fact shall not constitute the basis for an equitable price adjustment.



An indefinite-quantity contract provides for an indefinite quantity, within stated limits, of supplies or services during a fixed period. The Government places orders for individual requirements. Quantity limits may be stated as number of units or as dollar values.

An Indefinite-Quantity is a contract for the supplies or services specified, and effective for the period stated, in the IDC or Multi-Agency Contract. The quantities of supplies and services specified in the IDC or Multi-Agency Contract are estimates only and are not purchased by this contract.


A definite-quantity contract provides for delivery of a definite quantity of specific supplies or services for a fixed period, with deliveries or performance to be scheduled at designated locations upon order.

A Definite Quantity IDC or Multi-Agency Contract is a definite-quantity, indefinite-delivery contract for the supplies or services specified, and effective for the period stated, in the IDC or Multi-Agency Contract.
