The transition from fbo.gov to beta.SAM.gov did not come with the highest praises from the federal contracting community. Beta.sam.gov seemed to leave out some key features that FBO offered, including email tracking of solicitations and fewer opportunity results from certain agencies. One of the biggest complaints is that saved searches and tracked solicitations did not migrate to the new interface. Unless all account information was manually saved prior to the port, it was all lost once beta.sam.gov went live. GSA is responding to the outcry from the industry but hope that the tool will be what FBO once was is dwindling.
