Veterans Day Sees Uncle SAM.gov Absorb FedBizOpps

Nov.19.2019

Over the Veterans Day weekend, the General Services Administration closed the FedBizOpps (FBO) website, used for posting all open government contracting opportunities, and migrated FBO’s functionality to beta.SAM.gov. By way of the migration, GSA enhanced FBO’s search functionality on beta.SAM.gov; instituted two-factor login authentication; and attempted to improve the site’s user interface. FBO is the third of ten procurement systems to migrate to beta.SAM.gov. Although a smooth transition was promised, the new website requires users to create a new log in to access the website, and users are experiencing latency and slow performance that at times result in users being unable to log in to the application.
