What is the CSD number?

A csd number is the supplier number generated by csd for you after you have completed registrations with csd.

The csd number comes with a unique registration reference number

CSD numbers: “R” and “M” numbers

Q: If the CSD supplier number does not show on LOGIS, does it mean the supplier is not registered on the CSD?

No. It merely means that the CSD supplier number is not linked to an existing supplier yet. Please check on CSD using the CSD supplier search function.

Q: When a supplier has an MAAA number, does that mean the supplier has been vetted?

An RAAA number is the reference for registrations in process. An MAAA number means that the supplier has been registered on the CSD, but it does not mean that all supplier information has been vetted. Please do not assume that all verifications have been done – still check on the CSD.

Q: What happens if a company has a R000 number and now needs to be paid? Is this a valid number?

The R000 number refers to a supplier registration process that is not completed. Contact the supplier and request the supplier to complete the online registration process. Once the supplier has finished the registration, s/he must provide the OoS with his MAAA number. If a supplier has difficulty in completing the process, the organ of state should try and assist the supplier by making use of the online support tools.

Q: I can’t find a supplier with a MAAA number on the CSD.
Confirm the supplier registration by clicking on the “Am I Registered?” link under Help on the CSD website. Enter the provided MAAA number and search. If no result is returned, make use of the support tool to verify the status of the supplier registration process by confirming the
associated information of the supplier (e.g. email address, cell number or ID number).

Q: Which number must we use to search for suppliers – the CSD number or unique registration number?

The CSD user registration number can be used on the “Am I Registered?” link if you are searching for a specific supplier. Use the Support tool and enter the company registration number, supplier name or company ID to search for a specific supplier.

Q: When a supplier went back to update his details on CSD, he got an “R” number despite already having a MAAA number. Does this mean that, if you add branches, you get a new MAAA number?

(On LOGIS suppliers need separate numbers for branches.)
Every time a supplier makes an update to their supplier profile, they should make sure that they submit the changes. If a supplier does not submit the changes, the supplier will have a new RAAA number under his/her supplier records. As soon as it is submitted, only the original MAAA supplier record will remain.

Q: The department has entity numbers, but BAS requires a MAAA number. What must the department do?

BAS makes provision for both, the entity number or the CSD number.

Q: Does the R number have a duration or expiry date?

Not at the moment. Suppliers who have not completed the registration process are informed regularly via email to complete the registration process.
