  • Label changes—Several FedBizOpps labels were changed to SAM/FBO to stay current with the status of the changes being made by the government.
  • Field changes—The Posting Email ID field is new for site setup.
  • Field changes—The SAM/FBO Posting Email ID field is new for solicitations and .NET awards.
  • File name changes—SAM now requires unique file names for each version of attachments in postings

These changes are described in more detail below and are organized by functional area.
