Two children play kick the can

Required use of SAM.gov UEIs postponed

For those of you keeping track, we wanted to let you know that the federal government has postponed the deadline for transitioning away from DUNS numbers. The federal government was supposed to begin using their own unique identifiers for entities registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) by the end of this year, but are now targeting April 2022.

There’s nothing Miami PIs need to do at this time. Whenever Miami is assigned its UEI, we will update the institutional codes and identifiers section of our “Budget Resources” webpage and make the necessary changes to our institutional profile in Cayuse. Proposal consultants will also work with their assigned PIs to ensure the correct data is entered into applications prior to submission, both before and after the UEI rollout.
