Updated Product and Service Codes (PSC) Manual Is Now Available on Acquisition.gov

The August 2015 edition of the PSC Manual is now available for download at Acquisition.gov.


The updated PSC Manual will be effective on October 1, 2015. The changes to the manual include:


  • Updated product codes based on Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Federal Service Class (FSC) list changes

  • Addition of New Medical Services Codes, Category Q

  • Updated service code W070 - Lease or Rental of Equipment

  • Updated terminology in service code names to modern terms. For example, Automated Data Processing (ADP) was updated to Information Technology (IT)


The PSC Manual provides codes to describe products, services, and research and development (R&D) purchased by the U.S. federal government. These codes indicate “WHAT” was bought for each contract action reported in the Federal Procurement Data System - Next Generation (FPDS-NG).


PSC updates reflect changes in three areas:


  • The reporting of environmental attributes

  • Code changes reflecting updates for technology and terminology

  • The addition or end dating of codes


The PSC manual has been posted to Acquisition.gov in two locations:

<p>Is there a spreadsheet of the codes and descriptions? I think that would be more readable and more reusable.</p>
