The Integrated Award Environment (IAE) facilitates the federal awards processes in multiple online systems, including the System for Award Management, or SAM. Those systems are used for registering to do business with the federal government, listing contract opportunities, capturing contractor performance, viewing contract data, searching assistance listings, reporting subcontracts, and more.
Currently, there are two sites with very similar names: SAM.gov and beta.SAM.gov. What is known today as beta.SAM.gov will eventually become the new SAM.gov and will offer a single login to navigate the federal award lifecycle. The system is called “beta.SAM.gov” not because it is a traditional beta system, but rather so that it can be differentiated from the current SAM.gov.
The following legacy systems have been decommissioned and their functionalities successfully transitioned to beta.SAM.gov:
- Federal Business Opportunities (legacy FBO.gov)
- Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (legacy CFDA.gov)
- Wage Determination Online (legacy WDOL.gov)
- Federal Procurement Data System Reports* (legacy FPDS.gov)
*Only contract data reports transitioned to beta.SAM.gov; the rest of FPDS functions remain at FPDS.gov

As legacy IAE systems are integrated, their functions are migrated into beta.SAM.gov. When complete, you will be able to seamlessly leverage vast stores of federal data and information in a single, unified experience.
