FedBizOpps to be Decommissioned by Fiscal Year 2020

Jeff Brody

The General Services Administration’s Integrated Award Environment will transition all functions of the Federal Business Opportunities website to the System for Award Management’s beta website as it plans to retire the former by fiscal year 2020. A GSA Interact blog post published Tuesday says the move is to streamline the awards process in the federal government.

The SAM beta site will feature a search tool, a workspace and a reporting tool designed to increase business knowledge and facilitate daily tasks and the search for contract opportunities. The IAE will conduct an industry outreach day, user testing and other activities to prepare federal agencies for the migration to the SAM beta website.
