Federal Application Requirements

As of April 2022, the federal government stopped using the Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number to uniquely identify entities. Entities doing business with the federal government will now use a Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) which is created in the System for Award Management (SAM). The SAM can be located at SAM.gov. This transition allows the government to streamline the entity identification and validation process, making it easier and less burdensome for entities to do business with the federal government.
