Herndon, VA – November 7, 2019. Privia, the industry-leading capture and proposal management solution in the government contractor market, is keeping pace with the General Services Administration’s (GSA) transition from FedBizOpps.gov (FBO.gov) to System for Award Management (SAM.gov). Currently in Beta, SAM.gov will ultimately consolidate 10 procurement award sites into a single information portal, and the Privia team is busy assessing and testing the impact on their mission-critical Toolbar “import” feature to prepare clients for the transition.
The GSA announced that FedBizOpps.gov (FBO.gov) will begin to be decommissioned and its functionality transitioned into beta.SAM.gov starting on November 8, 2019. In order to transition roles from FBO.gov to beta.SAM.gov, active users will need to create a new account in beta.SAM.gov. For Privia’s 10,000+ users this means a necessary, yet seamless, software update once SAM.gov is finalized.
“Government contractors track dozens of opportunities at any given time,” said Jay McConville, Privia President and CEO, “so we are keeping a close eye on how the Beta progresses and have already developed the necessary software updates to our unique Privia Toolbar functionality. Changes to the beta.SAM.Gov site continue to happen frequently, so we will release our interface after full testing is completed and after the SAM.gov site is final.”
With Privia, government contractors identify and automatically import opportunities from Federal Government owned and operated free web sites, such as FBO.gov and SAM.gov, as well as third-party sites including Deltek’s GovWin IQ. Instead of downloading information and emailing it out to the team, Privia teams import and centralize opportunity information and materials and invite the team to collaborate, reviewing and commenting and coming to consensus on the bid decision.
“Although the Privia Toolbar update will be seamless for users,” continued Jay, “The changes SAM.gov finalizes will mean an upgrade to server software. We invite Privia teams to sign up now to prepare for the final transition to SAM.gov by scheduling their update with our Technical Support Team.”
