Stakeholder Forum Recap: Upcoming Transitions and the Current State of IAE

Thank you to everyone who participated in the most recent IAE Stakeholder Forum program.


On Sept 25, the IAE hosted another Stakeholder Forum  online event, the last of Fiscal Year 2018 in our ongoing series aimed at creating and increasing conversation and dialogue between stakeholders and the teams here who make the systems work.

Kicking off the session was Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) Product Owner Katherine Rollins, who talked about the transition of FBO—called Contract Opportunities - into  beta.SAM.gov. Rollins then gave a demonstration of the beta.SAM.gov site, which included how to use the search tool and find contract opportunities. This was followed by Program Manager Zack Sionakides, who demonstrated how to use the APIs to find contract opportunities under the Data Services section in beta.SAM.gov.   

Lastly, the almost 200 attendees also heard from beta.SAM.gov Design Lead Christy Hermansen. She provided an update about Wage Determinations OnLine (WDOL.gov), what will happen when it’s decommissioned, and what users should know and do to prepare for the transition, including these key points:

  • Subscriptions will not migrate to beta.SAM.gov.
  • Monitor WDOL.gov for announcements about the transition.   
  • Visit beta.SAM.gov and create a user account.
  • Start “following” wage determinations.
  • Provide us feedback through the feedback tool located on any page on beta.SAM.gov.


Hermansen also provided step-by-step illustrations of the process for finding and viewing wage determinations on beta.SAM.gov.  


Due to technical issues, some participants couldn’t hear the speakers or had issues logging into the meeting space; we are working to fix these issues for future events. However, if you missed this Industry Day program, you can still view the attached presentation slides along with the questions and answers below.


Stay tuned for an upcoming post about the IAE’s next Stakeholder Forum.
