Data Elements "Annual Revenue" and "Number of Employees" are not being treated as For Official Use Only (FOUO) as they are in SAM.gov. The data elements, "Annual Revenue" and "Number of Employees" will be removed from the FPDS Award and IDV screens, Atom Feeds, Interfaces, XML Archives and Web Services Schema.

For example:


The selected data elements in the above screen will no longer be displayed.



The Functional Dimension module was used by DoD only, and is no longer required. The Functional Dimension module will be removed from the FPDS contract screens, Government Office Selection screen, Government Office Get List and Help files.

See examples below:





Validation rule 10N33 is not firing on Validate or Approve but does fire on Correct.

10N33: If "Type of Set Aside" is 'Women Owned Small Business' or 'Women Owned Small Business Sole Source' the Vendor must be 'Women Owned Small Business', 'Joint Venture Women Owned Small Business', 'Economically Disadvantaged Women Owned Small Business' or 'Joint Venture Economically Disadvantaged Women Owned Small Business'.

When the “Fair Opportunity/Limited Sources” values ‘Competitive Set Aside’ or ‘Sole Source’ are selected on a Delivery/Task Order the “Type of Set Aside” can be changed. In some cases, when the value is changed from what was on the Referenced IDV, validation rules can be invoked that check to see if the vendor has the socioeconomic credits required by the Type of Set Aside. An example follows:

On PIID 3600-36C24218F2510A referencing 4730-GS07F0031T the Referenced IDV has ‘Woman Owned Business' (WOB) as a socioeconomic credit. The user selected the “Fair Opportunity/Limited Sources” value ‘Competitive Set Aside’ that allowed the “Type of Set-Aside” to be changed to ‘Woman Owned Small Business’ (WOSB). Rule 10N33 did not fire on Validate and Approve on the creation of 3600-36C24218F2510A. It did, however, fire when the user attempted to correct the action.



The V1.5 data element “Additional Reporting” was not added to the EzSearch 'Advanced Search' criteria and EzSearch Excel export. The V1.5 Data Element “Additional Reporting” will be added to the following:

• EzSearch Excel export
• Advanced Search drop down menu
• EzSearch FAQ



Validation rule DNB-014 is no longer valid, as confirmed by Dun & Bradstreet (D&B).

DNB-014: The DUNS Number entered is invalid (failed mathematical check). Please verify the DUNS Number and reenter a valid DUNS Number.

Validation rule DNB-014 will be removed. The rule was a mathematical check applied to a DUNS Number received from D&B to ensure the number was valid. As confirmed by D&B, this is no longer necessary. No


Currently, a Delivery/Task Order (DO) can have an earlier Solicitation Date than it's Referenced IDV. Two new validation rules have been created to prevent the user from entering a Solicitation Date on the DO that is earlier than the one on the Referenced IDV. See validation rules below:

DO Rule Code DOD2H05: Solicitation Date on the Delivery/Task Order cannot be earlier than the Solicitation Date of the Referenced IDV.

IDV Rule Code DOD2H06: The Solicitation Date provided is later than the Solicitation Date of a finalized document referencing this IDV. Please provide a Solicitation Date equal to or earlier than the Solicitation Date of finalized referencing documents.



Users can incorrectly enter Competitive Delivery Order "CDO" and Non-Competitive Delivery Order "NDO" for Extent Competed on V1.4 and V1.5 contracts. The ‘CDO’ and ‘NDO’ values can be selected on Delivery Orders (DO) against a Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) on new V1.5 contracts, as well as corrections to V1.4 contracts. These values were invalid for V1.4 and V1.5 and will be removed from selection on these contract versions. No


When a user reports a Part 8 BPA Call under a Single Award Part 8 BPA, the user must complete the "“Fair Opportunity/Limited Sources," "Number of Offers," and "Type of Set Aside" (in certain conditions) data fields. However, the FAR was changed a few years ago to not require additional competition for BPA calls if placed under a Single Award Part 8 BPA. The use case for Part 8 BPA Calls will no longer require an entry for the “Fair Opportunity/Limited Sources,” "Number of Offers," and "Type of Set Aside" data fields. Theses values will ‘Propagate’ from the Part 8 BPA and cannot be changed. Yes


DoD-only PIID rules DoD1A26 and DoD1A41 are causing issues sending new awards to FPDS. The DoD-only PIID rules DoD1A26 and DoD1A41 will be deprecated for V1.5 awards. Yes
