In order to improve the security of the FPDS user log in process, FPDS now integrates with login.gov to enable multi-factor authentication.

  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA) for FPDS-NG is now mandatory for individual FPDS users as of Saturday, December 5, 2020. There are no changes for FPDS System account users.
  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a security enhancement that requires two forms of authentication when individual users log into FPDS-NG and adds critical protection for your sign-on credentials.
  • All individual users should create an account with login.gov with the same email address associated with your FPDS-NG account.
  • By creating a login.gov account with the same email address as the existing user FPDS-NG account, after integration with login.gov, the process will enable the user to log into FPDS-NG to perform normal business activities.
