SAM.gov drops support for Internet Explorer 7/8

Effective October 28, 2016, the System for Award Management (SAM) will no longer support Internet Explorer versions 7 & 8 (IE7 & IE8). 

Microsoft announced in January 2016 only the most current version of Internet Explorer (IE) will receive technical support and security updates.  

Following our quarterly release on October 28th, we will block users from accessing SAM if they are coming in from an IE7 or IE8 browser. Users will either need to upgrade to a Internet Explorer version of IE9 or higher, or access SAM with another supported browser type (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc).
