“As of Nov. 12, Federal Business Opportunities, the website for publishing all public government procurements, will be officially decommissioned. After Veterans Day, the authoritative source for federal solicitations will be under a page on beta.SAM.gov.”
“According to the current timeline from the General Services Administration, the current FBO.gov site will enter a ‘data freeze’ beginning on Nov. 8.

“Users will have to use an existing account through Login.gov—or create a new one—in order to get full use of the new opportunities site. Federal employees using their FedBizOpps accounts to migrate over to Login.gov should have their information and roles transferred, as well, though the nomenclature for those roles might change…”

For example, the new site will allow users to choose between more filter options, including by solicitation type and four-digit product services codes.” Read the full article here.
