FPDSHD-55569 Voiding an FPDS-NG document locks the PIID so that it may not be used again. From the perspective of the user, this action is permanent and the document cannot be deleted, restored, or recreated. If the “Void” function is chosen incorrectly by the user for a contract that he or she wishes to delete and recreate, the user must request a Data Management fix to delete the “Void” contract. Therefore, deprecation of the “Void” function shall be considered. As per the decision made by the FPDS-NG CCB, the “Void” function shall be deprecated from the system. No
