  • 1.  USDOS: UEI requests

    Posted 07-15-2022 10:37
    Dear all:

    This is a quick update on where things stand with US Department of State partners seeking assistance with UEI requests that are denied, delayed, or otherwise stuck in the current backlog.

    Please note that State prefers that organizations go through their respective agreement officers (as applicable) to address any urgent UEI-related issues. The Agreement Officers will, in turn, elevate the requests internally within State to then be shared with their point of contact at the GSA/inter-governmental task force if they deem them to be truly urgent. 

    If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me directly. 

    Thank you!

    Cynthia Smith
    Director, Government Affairs and Advocacy
