The General Services Administration (GSA) has released a Request for Information for government-wide entity identification and validation services. For more information visit: https://www.gsa.gov/portal/content/155382.
Both industry partners and other stakeholders are invited to respond to this RFI. Currently, these services are provided by Dun and Bradstreet (D&B), whose contract with GSA expires in 2018. The government is exploring all viable means of continuing to meet its ongoing need for entity identification and validation services after the contract’s expiration. Additionally, both the FAR and 2CFR regulations have recently been revised to remove any proprietary references to Dun and Bradstreet (D&B) and DUNS. The RFI is posted on FBO, and will be available for review and comment until March 13, 2017.
