Out with the DUNS, In with the UEI: GSA Announces Transition Deadline for April 2022

Aug.10.2021

On July 28, 2021, the GSA shared a blog post on its outreach site, GSA Interact, announcing the final transition deadline of April 4, 2022, from using the 9-digit Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS number) to the new 12-digit alphanumeric Unique Entity ID (UEI) codes in SAM.gov.  On that date, no new DUNS numbers will be issued, and only the new UEI will be provided in SAM.gov data and reports.  All entities already registered in SAM.gov have been assigned a UEI, which is viewable in the entity registration record in SAM.gov.  Contractors should prepare their own internal systems and processes to accept the new UEI numbers and to stop using the DUNS number for federal awards processes by April 2022.
