NAICS Codes must be listed in the Business Type field in VIP profiles

Verification applicants are placing North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Codes in the wrong place in their online VIP profile. It is required that NAICS Codes are listed in the proper location within a firm’s VIP profile. The field titled Business Type is the only location to list NAICS Codes in a VIP profile.


NAICS Codes are not to be listed in any other field in VIP. Specifically, listing NAICS Codes in the VIP profile fields titled Capabilities Narrative or Capabilities Keywords is not allowed.


Business Type field is located between the Business Information and Capabilities sections of a firm’s VIP profile.
