  • ESF Reporting Help Desk, August 10, 2022: Please reference this guidance regarding the inability to obtain official Unique Entity Identifiers (UEIs) for the EANS, GEER/ESF-Gov, and ESSER/ESF-SEA Annual Performance Report Reopen periods. If an entity has applied for a UEI but has not yet received the UEI by the respective APR reporting deadline, submit with the provided temporary UEI. These temporary UEIs will need to be updated to actual UEIs at a later date. If an entity has applied for a UEI but SAM.gov denied the UEI because it was determined the entity is not unique (shared name, tax ID, etc.), reporting for that entity should be aggregated to the level/entity recognized by SAM.gov as unique.
