GSA is making changes to the unique entity identifier (UEI) that is used to do business with the federal government. Currently, GSA uses the proprietary D-U-N-S® number as the unique entity identifier for doing business with the government. We are moving to a new, non-proprietary identifier that will be requested in, and assigned by, the System for Award Management (SAM.gov).
GSA’s Office of Systems Management, Integrated Award Environment is hosting a meeting to provide information about the new Unique Entity ID standard. The meeting is open to all: current and potential federal awardees (contracts, grants, loan recipients, etc.) and the public. The meeting will be held on Thursday, July 25, 2019, starting at 1:00 p.m. eastern time (EDT).
