FBO.gov is Moving to the SAM.gov Beta Site - USFCR

The GSA has announced that FedBizOpps.gov (FBO.gov) will begin decommissioning, and its functionality will transition into beta.SAM.gov starting November 8, 2019.

beta.sam.gov (FBO.gov) officially merged with sam.gov on May 24th, 2021. Every business, nonprofit, and government entity looking to secure federal contracts or grants must be registered in this system. If you require assistance with your SAM registration, you can speak to a contracting specialist at: (866) 216-5343 or get started with your registration now.


What is FBO?

FBO (known as FedBizOpps) is how federal contracting agencies post notices on proposed contract actions valued at more than $25,000. These notices include solicitations, pre-solicitations, sole-source justifications, and other notices.

New Accounts and Migration

In order to transition roles from FBO.gov to beta.SAM.gov, you will need to create a new account in beta.SAM.gov. As part of the ongoing efforts to enhance security and to move to single sign-on for all IAE applications, GSA is implementing login.gov in beta.SAM.gov. A few weeks before the transition, you will need to create a new login.gov account or be ready to use your existing login.gov account. You also will be able to use your government-issued CAC/PIV card to log in. Government officials who have roles in FBO.gov will be required to complete a simple process to migrate their roles. By providing your username and password from FBO.gov on beta.SAM.gov, you will inherit all the roles you have now.

Start or Renew a SAM Registration with USFCR

NOTE: Legacy users will be able to migrate their roles only if their FBO.gov account is active. This means their FBO user account password cannot be expired.

What Action is Required by You?

If you are a USFCR SAM.gov verified vendor, we advise you to begin to use other resources for researching government opportunities. Your choices are to use USFCR's Advanced Procurement Portal (APP) or learn the limited SAM.gov beta site (beta.sam.gov) functionality.
