Effective October 2020 the transition of DUNS to the new Unique Entity Identifier has been extended. If you are a company that is doing business with the federal government, or would like to you are required to obtain a DUNS number from DUN & Bradstreet. Effective April of 2022 that action will change. The original transition was set for December 2020 but it was found that the transition would require more time for testing.
Ernst & Young who will takeover the management of the system from Dun & Bradstreet has been awarded the contract to do so in a March 2019 contract award.
Going forward active SAM registrants will have their new UEI assigned within your SAM account. New entities coming to SAM will request their identifier from SAM.gov.
