In the title compound, [Cd(C2N3)2(C10H8N2)2], the CdII ion is coordinated in a distorted octahedral environment by four N atoms from two chelating 2,2'-bipyridine ligands and two N atoms from two monodentate dicyanamide ligands. The dihedral angle between the mean planes of the two bipyridine ligands is 87.67 (6)°.
