On April 4, 2022, the U.S. Department of Education will join other Federal agencies and transition to utilizing new Unique Entity Identifiers (UEIs) for grant recipient and applicant organizations, rather than the previously utilized DUNS numbers. The UEI is administered through (System for Award Management).

Organizations that have already registered a DUNS with have now been assigned a UEI in that system.

Entities that do not have a registered DUNS in should ensure that they are registered well before the switch takes place. We recommend that organizations initiate the process with no later than March 1, 2022, as it may take some time for registration to be completed.

For detailed information about this change, please refer to the Fact Sheet found here: UEI Transition Fact Sheet.​
