Stakeholder Forum: Lastest News from beta.SAM.gov Recap

You may have recently noticed that there is a tremendous amount of activity going on at The Integrated Award Environment these days.  We are making moves, both behind the scenes and out front, that are having real-world impacts on our systems and the people who use them.  In line with FAS’s Federal Marketplace Strategy, we’re constantly striving to provide a modern acquisition experience through innovative and user friendly systems.  

Last week, we gathered for another of our online Stakeholder Forum sessions to talk about the latest news from IAE, to touch on a bit of what the future holds, and to discuss our path toward making your interaction with our systems  easy, modern, and efficient.

One of the most exciting aspects of the session was our ability to announce that WDOL.gov had officially decommissioned just a few days prior.  By all accounts, the transition was a successful one. That means all of the wage determinations work you used to do on WDOL.gov can now be done on beta.SAM.gov.  The transition of wage determinations functionality marks the second system (joining CDFA.gov) to move into beta.SAM.gov and the third system recently retired by The IAE (PPIRS.gov merged into CPARS.gov as well).

We also spent time discussing information that you need to know about the changes coming to the Unique Entity Identifier (ie: DUNS numbering).  Similar information is available at GSA.gov/entityid.

IAE presenters also discussed how to get involved in next month’s entity registrations workshops. If you are interested in participating in the workshops please sign-up by emailing newsamtesting@gsa.gov with “SAM Entity Workshops” in the subject line. 

With so many moving parts and so much going on to make the business of doing business with the federal government easier and better, please make sure to stay up-to-date on everything IAE here on Interact, on GSA.gov/IAE, and by emailing your questions to IAEOutreach@gsa.gov.

If you missed the June 2019 Stakeholder Forum or would like to hear it again, you can view the presentation, in its entirety, here.
