The General Services Administration will administer a virtual meeting July 25 with current and potential government contractors to discuss details for a new unique entity ID standard.
According to a notice posted Wednesday by the Office of the Federal Register, the government will phase out the Dun & Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System and utilize a new identification for federal government contracts, agreements and contracts.
An interagency group will develop the new unique entity ID and will be used by GSA's Integrated Award Environment Systems until December 2020. In addition, GSA will retain D-U-N-S IDs assigned to awards for record purposes after the transition.
Interested attendees may send an email to GSA to receive details on how to attend the virtual meeting.
