AD HOC REPORTS USERS: UPDATE YOUR REPORTS TO USE THE UNIQUE ENTITY ID (SAM)

On April 4, 2022, the DUNS Number will no longer be used to identify entities doing business with the federal government. It is being replaced by the Unique Entity ID (SAM). 

If you are using a DUNS Number as a filter or attribute on an ad hoc contract data report in the SAM.gov DataBank, you need to replace the DUNS field with a Unique Entity ID (SAM) field. If you don’t update your ad hoc reports, they may not display the expected results after April 4, 2022, or may generate an error until you remove or replace DUNS fields with Unique Entity ID fields.

To update your report, please follow the steps in the user guide here

The Unique Entity ID (SAM) attributes you can add to your ad hoc reports are:

  • Ultimate Parent Unique Entity ID (SAM)
  • Unique Entity ID (SAM)

The DUNS Number attributes you should remove from your ad hoc reports are:

  • Ultimate Parent Unique Entity ID (DUNS) (formerly named Global DUNS Number)
  • Unique Entity ID (DUNS) (formerly named Vendor DUNS Number)

Note that the Federal Service Desk (FSD.gov) can’t fix or change your ad hoc reports. You need to take action and follow the steps in the user guide to be sure your ad hoc reports show the expected information. 

Learn more about the transition from the DUNS Number to the Unique Entity ID (SAM) here.
