Online Representations and
Certifications Applications (ORCA)
ORCA is an e-Government initiative that has been developed to replace
the paper based Representations and Certifications (Reps and Certs) process.
Previously, vendors had to submit Reps and Certs for each individual large
purchase contract award. Now, using ORCA, a contractor can enter their
Reps and Certs information, once, for use on all Federal contracts. This
site not only benefits the contractor by allowing them to maintain an
accurate and complete record, but also the Contracting Officer as they
can view every record, including archives, with the click of a mouse.
Registration in ORCA is required
if the solicitation being responded to requires an active registration
in CCR. ORCA is an on-line system that is located on the Internet. The
ORCA site can be found by going to http://www.bpn.gov
and clicking on "Online
Reps and Certs Application" on the left side of the screen.
The vendor must accomplish
the following before registering in ORCA they must:
- obtain a DUNS Number
- register in CCR
- an MPIN must be entered
into an active CCR registration.
