Detailed questions about the conversion from DUNS number to UEI number should be directed to the GSA by creating an incident ticket with the Federal Service Desk online at FSD.gov or by calling (866) 606-8220. Information about the UEI transition can be found by accessing GSA.gov and searching on ‘Unique Entity Identifier Update’.
For further information on the transition to UEI Number, access SAM.gov. Look for the Register Your Entity or Get a Unique Entity ID section on the page then click Learn More to display detailed information about the DUNS to Unique Entity ID (UEI) transition.
UEI numbers used by eligible recipients must be the same across all programs. If you have identified a difference between the number listed in SAM.gov for the legal entity (participating in one or more Treasury programs) with the UEI number that is specific to Treasury or experienced another issue with the UEI number on the Treasury Portal, please send an email to LATCF@treasury.gov. Please note that the GSA manages the issuance of UEI numbers and SAM.gov registration.

Beginning April 4, 2022, the Federal Government transitioned from the DUNS number issued by Dun and Bradstreet to the Unique Entity Identifier (UEI). At that point, entities doing business with the federal government must use a Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) number assigned in SAM.gov and will no longer use a third-party website to obtain their identifier number.
Entities are able to manage organizational information, such as legal business name and physical address associated with a UEI number, directly from SAM.gov.
No action is required if you have an existing and active registration in SAM.gov. If you are registered in SAM.gov, your UEI number has already been assigned and is viewable in your SAM.gov account. Your UEI number is located below the DUNS number on your entity registration record.
Please ensure your legacy DUNS number is accessible for historical reference where needed, as the DUNS number will no longer be visible to users in SAM.gov after April 4, 2022. Similarly, Treasury will automatically populate your existing account records with the GSA-issued UEI number in the Treasury.gov submission and compliance portal, as applicable.
Eligible entities can apply at Portal.Treasury.gov/Cares. From there, you will need to either create an account (your identity will need to be verified through ID.me) or log in. Once logged into the portal, you will see a submission ID beginning with ‘LATCF-XXXX’. Click on the pen icon to begin and follow the instructions.
The deadline to complete the submission is October 31, 2022 at 11:59 AKDT (Alaska Daylight Time). If a Tribal government does not complete its submission by that deadline, the Tribal Government will not be eligible for either the first or second payment under the LATCF.
The details can be found on the LATCF program page at Treasury.gov/LATCF or on the Treasury portal at Portal.Treasury.gov/cares.
All Entities can obtain a Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) number on the SAM.gov website and register for an account if needed.
New SAM.gov registrants will be assigned a UEI number as part of their SAM registration.
All existing Entities with an existing and active registration with SAM.gov will be assigned a UEI number that can be used for reporting activities.
For more information, please access the SAM.gov website.
