I.IntroductionThe Product and Service Codes (PSC) Manual provides codes to describe products, services,and research and development (R&D) purchased by the federal government. These codesindicate “WHAT” was bought for each contract action reported in the Federal Procurement DataSystem (FPDS).The PSC manual has been updated to reflect changes in three areas:1. The reporting of environmental attributes;2. Code changes reflecting updates for technology and terminology;3. The addition or end dating of codes.The previous revised manual updated codes and reporting processes described in this manualwent into effect on October 1, 2011. The updates in this revision will be effective October 1,2015.5

II.Guidelines/PolicyTwo FPDS data elements are the primary focus of the changes in this manual. The PSC isentered in FPDS in data element 8A, “Product or Service Code.” Environmental attributes areentered in data element 8L, “Recovered Materials/Environmental Attributes.”These product/service codes are used to record the products and services being purchased by theFederal Government. In many cases, a given contract/task order/purchase order will includemore than one product and/or service. In such cases, the “Product or Service Code” data elementcode should be selected based on the predominant product or service that is being purchased.For example, a contract for 1000 of lumber and 500 of pipe would be coded under 5510,“Lumber & Related Wood Materials.”Similarly, a given contract/task order/purchase order may include products/services with andwithout environmental attributes. In such cases, data element 8L, “RecoveredMaterials/Environmental Attributes,” should be filled in based on the predominant product orservice that is being purchased. For example, a contract for 1000 of energy star refrigeratorsand 500 of standard refrigerators would be coded under 4110, “Refrigeration Equipment” withthe “Recovered Materials/Environmental Attributes” data element 8L selected as “energyefficient.”Determining the environmental attributes associated with acquisition of services presentschallenges. Many service acquisitions tend to be predominantly labor-based, which in itself doesnot have environmental attributes. However, in accomplishing the objectives of the servicescontract, environmental attributes may apply and it is important to provide agencies both theflexibility and information to make such decisions. GSA will update this manual with additionalguidance as soon as it becomes available.6

III.Environmental Reporting RequirementsStatutory requirements and Executive Order 13514 direct the Office of Management and Budget(OMB) Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) to report on procurement of products andservices with environmental attributes including recycled content, biobased, and energy efficient.FPDS will be used to collect data on the procurement of products and services with theseenvironmental attributes. The initial phase of implementation allows for the collection of thethree attributes listed above plus an “environmentally preferable” attribute which includes otherattributes. The following definitions apply to data collected in FPDS.ENERGY EFFICIENT. Per FAR 2.101, “Energy efficient” means a product that—oMeets Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Agency criteria foruse of the Energy Star trademark label; oroIs in the upper 25 percent of efficiency for all similar products as designated bythe Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP).As used in this definition, the term “product” does not include any energy-consumingproduct or system designed or procured for combat or combat-related missions (42 U.S.C.8259b).BIOBASED. Per FAR 2.101, “biobased product” means a product determined by the U.S.Department of Agriculture to be a commercial or industrial product (other than food or feed) thatis composed, in whole or in significant part, of biological products, including renewabledomestic agricultural materials (including plant, animal, and marine materials) or forestrymaterials.ENVIRONMENTALLY PREFERABLE. Per FAR 2.101, “environmentally preferable”means products or services that have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and theenvironment when compared with competing products or services that serve the same purpose.This comparison may consider raw materials acquisition, production, manufacturing, packaging,distribution, reuse, operation, maintenance, or disposal of the product or service. For the ProductServices Code Manual, this includes categories such as EPEAT registered, water efficient,Significant New Alternatives Program (SNAP)/non-ozone depleting, recovered content, andenvironmentally preferable products/services (EPA designated). For the Product Services CodeManual, environmentally preferable also includes building-related or facilities-related serviceswhich are associated with “green” industry standards and certifications, such as the US GreenBuilding Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)certification. Environmentally preferable excludes products or services that are predominatelybio-based or energy-efficient as these two categories are defined in the Products and ServicesCode Manual.7

IV.Reporting of Environmental Attributes in FPDSThe tracking of environmental purchases is going to be accomplished through data element 8L,the “Recovered Materials/Environmental Attributes” data element in FPDS. The “RecoveredMaterials/Environmental Attributes” data element is an existing field in FPDS which has beenmodified to allow expanded environmental reporting. The field now includes a dropdown boxwith the following options: RCRA FAR 52.223-4RCRA FAR 52.223-4 and 52.223-9No clauses included and no environmental includedEnergy efficientBiobasedEnvironmentally preferableRCRA FAR 52.223-4 and energy efficientRCRA FAR 52.223-4 and biobasedRCRA FAR 52.223-4 and environmentally preferableRCRA FAR 52.223-4 and biobased & energy efficientRCRA FAR 52.223-4 and biobased & environmentally preferableRCRA FAR 52.223-4 and biobased & energy efficient & environmentally preferableThere will not be a validation rule associated with this data element. It will be possible to selectan environmental attribute that does not apply to the given product or service. For example, onecould designate PSC 7350 Tableware as “Energy Efficient.” Therefore, please use caution andselect the appropriate field based upon the contract requirements.8

B. General Comments1. Code Structure: The PSCs will continue to be 4-position codes, with productshaving a digit in the first position and services and R&D having a character in thefirst position. The only significant change to the content of the codes involves themulti-use facility codes. They have been changed from 3 digits to 2 characters tomake more efficient use of the available positions.2. Product Codes: The product codes are managed by the DLA LogisticsInformation Service and have been incorporated into the manual based on the listof Federal Supply Classes (FSC) obtained from DLA Logistics InformationService in July 2011.3. Abbreviations and Formatting. Abbreviations were made consistent. Where codenames included the hierarchy, the delimiters between levels were made to beconsistent (e.g., the dash and colon in “Architect and Engineering ServicesConstruction: Office Buildings”).4. Terminology. The terminology used in the service code names was updated to usemodern terms. For example, “Automated Data Processing” (ADP) was updatedto “Information Technology” (IT).5. New Codes Added. Based upon feedback and recommendations from the blog,for any service that could not be readily classified under an existing code, a newcode was added. The summary table above provides the number of changes.Appendix 1 provides a detailed list of codes.6. Codes End Dated. If two codes covered the same service, one code was retainedand the other was end dated. Product codes which were not on the list of FSCs asof July 2011 were also end dated. The ended codes can no longer be selected inFPDS, but the legacy data are retained. The summary table above provides thenumber of changes. Appendix 1 provides a detailed list of codes.C. Research and Development Code Summary1. New Codes Added. A seventh R&D stage, “Commercialization” was added to themanual. This stage has been available in FPDS for some time, but it is new to themanual.2. R&D services may or may not have environmental attributes.D. Services Code Summary1. The multi-use facility codes have been changed from a 3-digit scheme to a moreefficient 2-character scheme. There are currently 73 types of facilities that fallwithin 15 categories. It is not efficient to use three code positions to capture thefacility type. For example, under the previous scheme, the first facility category,“Administrative Facilities and Service Buildings,” contained three facility types—“Office Buildings,” “Government Conference Space and Facilities,” and“Government Other Administrative and Service Buildings”—and used the codesending in 111, 112, and 119. Under the new numbering scheme, these same threefacility types are captured using codes ending in AA, AB, and AZ, respectively.2. With only two code positions used for the facility type, it became possible to splitthe Z codes into Z1 “Maintenance of Structures and Facilities,” and Z2 “Repair or10

Alteration of Structures and Facilities.” For example, previously the servicecalled “Maintenance, Repair, or Alteration of Office Buildings” was captured bycode Z111. Now, this service is split into two codes: Z1AA represents“Maintenance of Office Buildings” and Z2AA represents “Repair or Alteration ofOffice Buildings.”3. The C1 “Architect and Engineering” codes are now able to capture the detailedfacility types—not just the facility category. For example, previously the codeC111 only captured the facility category— “Administrative Facilities and ServiceBuildings.” (Three types of facilities fall into this category.) Now C1AA, C1AB,and C1AZ capture the facility types “Office Buildings,” “Government ConferenceSpace and Facilities,” and “Government Other Administrative and ServiceBuildings,” respectively. Used as a search criteria, “C1A*” still captures thesame level of detail (at the facility category level) as the former “C111” code.4. Note: The C2 “Architecture and Engineering Services – General” codes have notbeen changed. They capture general services and are not related to specificfacility categories/types.As mentioned above, it can be difficult to determine whether a service has environmentalattributes. GSA will update this manual with additional guidance as soon as it becomesavailable.The reference tables of multi-use codes for product-based and facility-based codes have beeneliminated. Instead, the complete list of 4-digit codes is provided in the manual.E. Product Code Summary1. The product codes are managed by DLA Logistics Information Service. Thecodes have been incorporated into the manual based on the Federal Supply Class(FSC) list obtained from DLA Logistics Information Service in July 2011. As aresult, no new codes were added; however, several codes were end dated. Theended codes were primarily associated with detailed ship types and fiber optichardware types. In the future, the product code list will mirror the FSC list. Anychanges to product codes will be handled through the DLA Logistics InformationService change control process. DLA Logistics Information Service can becontacted at fiigs@dla.mil.11

VI.ReportsAd hoc reports may be created for any FPDS data. The Ad Hoc Reports Manual is available athttps://www.fpds.gov. The Ad Hoc Reports Manual is listed under the Training Tab on the site.The ezSearch tool provides the ability to search for contracts based on free text. All contractssearched are in Final status. Any DoD contract that is less than 90 days old will not be includedin the search. For specific directions on the use of ezSearch, see the help material at thefollowing link: https://www.fpds.gov/help/index.jsp.12

VII.Change Control Procedures for Product and Service CodesThe General Services Administration manages the services codes and the research anddevelopment codes in this PSC Manual and reported in the FPDS. Therefore, any changes tothese codes will be processed in accordance with the change control procedures described below.The product codes in this PSC Manual are managed by the DLA Logistics Information Service.Therefore, changes to the product codes are handled via DLA Logistics Information Service andtheir established processes.

VIII.Frequently Asked Questions What changed?The PSC manual has been updated to reflect changes in three areas:1. The reporting of environmental attributes.2. Code changes reflecting updates for technology and terminology.3. The addition or end dating of codes How do I select product/service codes?For a given contract action, the product or service code should be selected basedon the predominant product or service that is being purchased. Why is it important to collect codes accurately?These codes are used to gather data that forms the basis of legally-mandatedreports. Policy and acquisition decisions made by Government and privatesector executives may be informed by the data captured in and reported fromFPDS. Why are we collecting environmental attributes?The purchase of certain environmentally friendly products and services must bereported per statute and executive order. The central collection of certain datathrough FPDS will minimize reporting burden on agencies. How do I determine if a service has environmental attributesDetermining the environmental attributes associated with acquisition of servicespresents challenges. Many service acquisitions tend to be predominantly laborbased, which in itself does not have environmental attributes. However, inaccomplishing the objectives of the services contract, environmental attributesmay apply and it is important to provide agencies both the flexibility andinformation to make such decisions. GSA will update this manual withadditional guidance as soon as it becomes available. How are environmental attributes captured in FPDS?Environmental attributes are entered in data element 8L, “RecoveredMaterials/Environmental Attributes.” The element can capture variouscombinations of RCRA, energy efficient, biobased, and environmentallypreferable attributes.15

Section AResearch and Development Codes17

Research and DevelopmentIf the contract action is for research and development (R&D) work, report an R&D code. Do notassign an R&D code to supplies or housekeeping services purchased in support of research anddevelopment work; such supplies shall be coded using the appropriate product PSC and theservices using the appropriate service PSC.The R&D code is composed of two alphabetic and two numeric digits. The first digit is alwaysthe letter "A" to identify R&D, the second digit is alphabetic "A to Z" to identify the majorcategory, the third digit is numeric 1 to 9 to identify a subdivision of the major category, and thefourth digit will be 1 to 7, to identify the appropriate stage of R&D shown below.Stages of R&D Codes (4th Position)—Code Meaning(1) Basic Research(2) Applied Research and Exploratory Development(3) Advanced Development(4) Engineering Development(5) Operational Systems Development(6) Management and Support(7) CommercializationProcurement personnel responsible for R&D actions shall obtain sufficient information fromrequisitioning personnel to permit accurate classification. When completing this item, the preciseR&D Service being purchased shall be coded.Example: A contract for research on air pollution by aircraft shall be shown under “R&DEnvironmental Protection (AH2*)” for air pollution, and not under aircraft. Test and evaluationeffort shall be coded under the stage of R&D involved. For example, the testing of adevelopmental prototype would generally be coded under Code 3, Advanced Development.Definitions of Stages of R&DThe following terms and categories relating to "research and development" are for managementof R&D and RDT&E programs. The term "research and development" normally encompassesthe "first" five categories below. For example, construction of recreational facilities at aninstallation used exclusively or generally for research and development would not normally beprocurement of "research and development" but it is sometimes included in the sixth category inorder to classify obligations according to the ultimate purpose of the procurement.(1) Basic Research - includes all scientific effort and experimentation directed towardincreasing knowledge and understanding in those fields of the physical, engineering,environmental, social, and life sciences related to long-term national needs. It providesfundamental knowledge ultimately required for the solution of social, economic, political,physical, or military problems. It forms a part of the base for subsequent applied researchand exploratory and advanced development in the various disciplines, and new orimproved functional capabilities.18

(2) Applied Research and Exploratory Development - includes all effort directed toward thesolution of specific problems, short of major development projects. This type of effortmay vary from fairly fundamental applied research to quite sophisticated bread-boardhardware, study, programming, and planning efforts. It would thus include investigationsand minor development effort. The dominant characteristic of this category of effort isthat it be pointed toward specific problem areas with a view toward developing andevaluating the feasibility and practicability of proposed solutions and determining theirparameters.(3) Advanced Development - includes all effort directed toward projects which have movedinto, e.g., the development of hardware for test. The prime result of this type of effort isproof of design concept and/or prototype.(4) Engineering Development - includes those projects in full-scale engineering developmentfor Government use but which have not yet received approval for production or hadproduction funds included in the budget submission for the current or subsequent fiscalyear. Thus are characterized by major line item projects.(5) Operational Systems Development - includes those projects still in full-scale engineeringdevelopment but which have received approval for production, or production funds havebeen included in the budget submission for the current of subsequent fiscal year.(6) Management and Support - includes all effort directed toward support installations oroperations required for general research and development. Included would beconstruction of a general nature unrelated to specific programs, maintenance and supportof laboratories, operation and maintenance of test ranges, and maintenance of testaircraft, equipment, or ships. Costs of laboratory personnel, either in house or contractor,would be assigned to appropriate projects or program areas above.(7) Commercialization - Includes all effort directed toward transition of a product from R&Dto commercial sales and usage.19
