General topics discussed at this week's session as well as any helpful links are provided below:

1) On April 4, 2022, the unique entity identifier changed from the DUNS Number to the Unique Entity ID, which is generated by SAM.gov.  A company's old DUNS Number and its new Unique Entity ID are not linked, and you cannot use the old DUNS number to find the new Unique Entity ID associated with the company. SAM.gov | Home

2) Weekly Protest of Power – Protest was sustained where the agency unreasonably found a protester's proposal unacceptable based on the failure to submit a password prior to the proposal due date to decrypt a required document in the proposal.  GAO found the encrypted document related solely to responsibility and the agency had both the document and the password in its possession prior to evaluating the protester's proposal. Chags Health Information Technology, LLC | U.S. GAO
