FAA to Cease FedBizOpps Contracting Announcements

The Federal Aviation Administration is advising interested vendors that contracting opportunities with the agency and other related announcements will be posted on the new FAA Contract Opportunities website. FAA said Thursday it will stop issuing announcements via FedBizOpps as it waits to resolve system compatibility issues with the SAM.gov platform.

The move comes as part of the General Services Administration’s efforts to transition 10 legacy contracting sites, including FBO, into a consolidated System for Award Management platform. FAA noted that it does not plan to transfer its contracting opportunities to the beta system.

The FBO migration is slated for Nov. 8 to 11.
