Austin_​Tetra_​Number_​PDS The taxpayer identification number of the contractor providing the product or Service. It may be the Social Security Number of the contractor. The A-T Number is being added to support an ongoing requirement to identify purchase card merchants socioeconomic reporting information. It is a tracking method to monitor sales through credit and debit card purchases.

A-T Numbers are the key to linking corporate family relationships within the A-T database. Since each location of a business has its own unique A-T Number, a large organization has many different A-T Numbers within its corporate "family." The A-T Number is non-indicative so it remains with a business throughout its lifecycle and is never reused.

The A-T Number will only be displayed in CCR Tools. The A-T Number will be used by the Acquisition Information Reporting (AIR) systems within the Integrated Acquisition Environment (IAE). Additional information about Austin Tetra can be found at: www.austintetra.com.
