On April 4, say goodbye to DUNS and hello to UEI

The federal government will finally pull the plug on the use of Dun and Bradstreet numbers and fully move to a brand new identifier for contractors, called the unique entity identifier (UEI). On April 4, GSA will complete a major technology modernization project that started in 2012, picked up steam in 2016 and finally will come to completion after a six-month parallel test. Memi Whitehead, the deputy assistant commissioner of GSA’s Integrated Award Environment, spoke about the shift with Federal News Network Executive Editor Jason Miller on Ask the CIO.
