GSA To Implement DocuSign
by Maeghan Gale
GSA Implements DocuSign to Digitally Sign Documents.
Effective November 30, 2020, GSA will implement DocuSign to digitally sign documents. It is planned that DocuSign will replace digital certificates with GSA FAS ID in eOffer and eMod in late Q2 (April-June) of FY21.
Please be aware of the following eOffer/eMod timelines during the DocuSign transition scheduled Nov. 25-29, 2020.
- Offerors and contractors will not be able to submit new offers/requests for mods using the eOffer/eMod portal during the DocuSign transition period Nov. 25-29, 2020.
- In order for the transition to go as smooth as possible, there cannot be any partially signed documents during the transition. Thus, all documents pending signature must be signed by the contracting officer and offeror/contractor no later than Nov. 23, 2020.
Until the DocuSign and GSA FAS ID fully transitions (in 2021), digital certificates will continue to be required to access eOffer and eMod. Please note that while digital certificates won’t be needed for these applications after the transition, contractors may still need to maintain their digital certificates for other government and non-government customers.
