On April 4, 2022, the federal government is moving away from the DUNS Number as its official entity identifier and toward the new Unique Entity ID (SAM), which will be generated in SAM.gov.

In preparation for this transition,both prime and sub-awardees should take action now to ensure they are able to report accurately in FSRS.gov.  

Don’t wait until the last minute! All sub-awardees should get their Unique Entity ID (SAM) at SAM.gov now. Sub-awardees do not have to go through the full registration process to obtain a Unique Entity ID (SAM).  

Prime awardees should communicate with all of their sub-awardees and ask each one for their Unique Entity ID (SAM) prior to April 4, 2022.  Entities (primes and subs) that already have a Unique Entity ID (SAM) can find it by following this FAQ, available at the Federal Service Desk (FSD.gov).  

If you can’t find your sub-awardee’s Unique Entity ID (SAM), it likely means they don’t have one yet.  Sub-awardees should be contacted directly to ensure they get their  Unique Entity ID (SAM) at SAM.gov. 

For more information about how to get a Unique Entity ID at SAM.gov, there is help available through this video and these instructions.

If you already have a Unique Entity ID (SAM), it’s currently visible in FSRS.  It will become authoritative for data entry on April 4, 2022. 

Keep in mind that prior to April 4, 2022, the authoritative unique entity identifier to use for subaward reporting is the DUNS Number. On and after April 4, 2022, the authoritative unique entity identifier for subaward reporting will be the Unique Entity ID (SAM).
