January 1, 2022 - As of April 4, 2022, the federal government will stop using the DUNS number to uniquely identify entities doing business with the federal government. A Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) will replace DUNS numbers. All entities must register in SAM.gov for a UEI. You will no longer be required to get an identifier from a third-party website. 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.
