GSA Issues First, Second Set of Unique Entity Identifier Specifications

The General Services Administration has released the first and second group of specifications for a unique entity identifier as the agency prepares to transition from the DUNS number to a non-proprietary identifier.

GSA said the System for Award Management will assign the unique identifier used to track companies doing business with the government.

Group 1 sets specifications for the beta.SAM Entity Management application programming interface, SAM Entity Management Web Services and the SAM public RESTful API.

Group 2 establishes specifications for the beta.SAM Exclusions API and the SAM Exclusions Search Web Services.

GSA said it will release the additional sets of UEI specifications in the coming weeks. The Integrated Award Environment will issue its testing plans and finalize the release of updated technical specifications for interfacing platforms by Dec. 30.
