What do I need to do?

You need to create a login.gov account, if you don't already have one. Your old FPDS.gov username and password won't work anymore. You'll need to:

  • Create a login.gov account - you only need to do this once
  • Enter an email address - use the same email address you use for FPDS.gov (for system and individual federal or non-federal access)
  • Have a working phone number (mobile or landline) - login.gov will send you a security code

What is the difference between Login.gov Production and Sandbox environments?

Login.gov access is separated between production and non-production (test) environments. Users who are accessing production FPDS (www.fpds.gov) will need to register for a Login.gov (production) account. Users who need to test at beta FPDS (beta.fpds.gov) will need to have a separate, additional Login.gov account, within the Login.gov sandbox (test) environment. If you currently only have a production Login.gov account, please note that you will not be able to use this account within the beta FPDS test environment.

The URLs to access the respective Login.gov environments are as follows:

What email address do I use to create a login.gov account?

If you are an existing FPDS user, use the same email address you registered with in FPDS.gov so we can automatically link your FPDS.gov profile to your login.gov account. If you use a different email address, we won't be able to automatically link your profile.

Can I use my existing username and password?

No. You must create a new account with login.gov. This is a one-time step. For existing FPDS users, you should use your existing FPDS.gov email address. For new users, you will be able to create a new FPDS user profile once you complete the login.gov authentication.

What will happen to my FPDS.gov profile?

Nothing will happen to the information stored in your FPDS.gov account. If you use the same email to create your login.gov profile, you will keep all of your records, data access requests, and saved searches. If you use a new email address, nothing will happen to your FPDS.gov profile but you will be unable to access it.

What will happen to my Contract Actions in FPDS?

There is no impact to contract action data, data access requests, or roles. All data in FPDS will remain as-is. No contract data in FPDS will be impacted by the changes to the login process.
