Planned UEI Updates in Grant Application Forms


Beginning in December 2020, the D-U-N-S® number will be replaced by a “new, non-proprietary identifier” requested in, and assigned by, the System for Award Management (SAM.gov). This new identifier is being called the Unique Entity Identifier (UEI), or the Entity ID.

 

SAM's Timeline for New Form Versions with UEI Updates

We encourage all Grants.gov users to bookmark and regularly consult GSA's UEI Update page in order to stay up-to-date with the ongoing transition. Grants.gov will continue to work with GSA regarding these upcoming changes. Please review, below, Grants.gov's Timeline for New Form Versions with UEI Fields, as well as the list of federal grant application forms that will be impacted by the transition from DUNS Numbers to the UEI.
