Short for Commercial And Government Entity Code. Used to identify manufacturers/suppliers to DoD and other Govt entities ie 0GU83 is for MATECH and 6P199 is for Center Industries/Parsons(bought Center) makers of standard 30rd magazines. Some supply items don't always have the manufacturer. Cage 6P199 hasn't had marked floor plates since about 2005. When ordering more instead of using an NSN or NIIN the cage code would be used to identify the manufacturer and in most cases what items they supply for the military.
