Contractors would use DocuSign when applying via eOffer/eMod, a tool designed to electronically facilitate contract offer submissions and modification requests, GSA said Wednesday. DocuSign's implementation on eOffer/eMod aims to provide a secure, legally compliant signing tool for GSA's information technology transformation pursuits.
GSA also plans to apply the Federal Acquisition Service ID multi-factor authentication to eOffer/eMod in the second quarter of 2021. FAS ID's multi-factor authentication adds a second layer of security to protect contractor accounts and GSA applications from unauthorized access.
The eOffer/eMod tool's transition to DocuSign will run from Nov. 25th to 29th, a period when users will temporarily not be able fully submit offers and modification requests. Users will also be required to present digital certificates when accessing eOffer/eMod during the tool's transition to FAS ID.
