“After Veterans Day weekend, federal agencies will no longer be able to post their procurements to Federal Business Opportunities, or FBO.gov, as the General Services Administration migrates those capabilities to a tab under beta.SAM.gov. Not every agency will transition immediately.”
“At least one contracting office, the Federal Aviation Administration’s headquarters office, won’t be posting to the Contract Opportunities page on SAM.
