The current FBO.gov website will retire over the Veterans Day weekend, beginning at 8pm on Thursday November 8th. The new system at beta.sam.gov will go live on Tuesday November 12th.
What You Can Do Right Now to Prepare
- If you don’t already have an account, create one now at the beta.sam site. If you’ve already created a Login.gov account, for example to login to SAM.gov, you can use the same login information in Beta.sam.gov
- Go to your current FBO account and make a note of all your ‘Saved Searches’ and ‘Watchlists’. These will NOT be migrated to the new site, so you’ll need to save the information before FBO goes out of action.
- Check out the beta.sam.gov website, and begin to familiarize yourself with the new system – you might want to begin at their Learning Center.
