Is Preparing for SAM’s Rollout of the Unique Entity Identifier (UEI)

The System for Award Management (SAM) will introduce the Unique Entity Identifier (UEI), which is currently scheduled to replace the DUNS Number near the end of 2020. Users can expect to see UEI labels in March 2020 when implements the label change across the system in preparation for the SAM transition to the UEI. When using Workspace, applicants will see fields formerly labeled “DUNS” now labeled “UEI” starting in March 2020. For now, keep entering the DUNS Number when a field labeled “UEI” needs to be filled in.
