Our Limited Access Death Master File (LADMF) Subscription pricing is increasing the coming Fiscal Year 2023, beginning October 1, 2022.

NTIS strives toward excellence in customer service and hopes these changes will grow the level of resources toward our LADMF Subscription program to increase support for our customers.

Biennially, in accordance with the requirements of OMB Circular A-25 Revised (User Charges) and in accordance with Department of Commerce policy contained in Chapter 11 (Fees and Revenues) of the Accounting Principles and Standards Handbook. As a result of this review, NTIS provides assurance that a) existing user charges are adjusted to reflect unanticipated changes in costs or market values; and b) that all agency programs have been reviewed to determine whether fees should be assessed for Government services or the user of Government goods or services.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team at subscriptions@ntis.gov.
