USAID: Intersection of UEI Exception/Deviation and FFTA Reporting

  • 1.  USAID: Intersection of UEI Exception/Deviation and FFTA Reporting

    Posted 10-05-2022 14:50
    Several of you have reached out to me with questions about the intersection of USAID's UEI assistance exception guidance/acquisition deviation and FFATA reporting requirements which necessitate a UEI. Here is the guidance I have been given from USAID:

    "Access to to conduct any FFATA -related reporting will not be available to the prime until they have a UEI.  

    When the deviation under AAPD 22-03 is utilized, prime contractors will need to wait until their UEI is obtained before conducting any FFATA reporting.  In AAPD 22-03, Section II ("Required Actions") notes under Step 10 ("Update the award and systems") that the CO must update the Federal Procurement Data System – Next Generation (FPDS-NG) with the UEI; this is the step that will then allow the prime contractor to then conduct FFATA reporting in

    Similarly, under AAPD 22-04 for assistance awards, prime recipients will not be able to conduct any reporting in until they have a UEI."
