IAE Stakeholder Forum: Recap and Materials

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

 

On June 12, the IAE hosted another online event in our ongoing series aimed at creating and increasing conversation and dialogue between stakeholders and the folks here who make the systems work.

 

The entire session was based on leaving the program open to the questions that participants sent in.  While a few of the questions were about the transition, most revolved around SAM.gov and the entity registration process. One of the main topics of this event was the steps GSA is taking to address fraudulent activity in the System for Award Management (SAM). More than 125 attendees joined to hear IAE’s Outreach and Stakeholder Engagement Director Nancy Goode and Business Operations Director Memi Whitehead discuss how the activation process will change for submission of a notarized letter in SAM.gov. While the submission of a notarized letter which identifies each entity's authorized administrator is not changing, some registrations will now be activated before GSA receives and approves the physical notarized letter. This impact will roll out in two phases:

  • Effective June 11, 2018, entities who create or update their registration in SAM.gov to apply only for federal assistance opportunities such as grants, loans, and other financial assistance programs no longer need to have an approved Entity Administrator notarized letter on file before their registration is activated.
  • June 29, 2018, all non-federal entities who create or update their registration in SAM.gov will no longer need to have an approved Entity Administrator notarized letter on file before their registration is activated. All non-federal entities still must mail the original, signed copy of the notarized letter to the Federal Service Desk.

All accounts must submit a notarized letter within 30 days or your account may no longer be active.

 

Participants also heard how SAM.gov is increasing security by integrating with Login.gov to implement multi-factor authentication for registered SAM.gov users. On June 29, 2018, when users go to SAM.gov and log in, they will be asked to create a Login.gov user account. They must know the email address associated with their current SAM.gov user account to automatically migrate their roles.

 

Goode and Whitehead explained that the IAE will post messages on SAM.gov along with the FSD website before the Login.gov transition takes place. The IAE also will engage in a wide range of public-facing messages to ensure stakeholders are ready for the switch.

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