Starting August 8, 2020, the General Services Administration (GSA) will implement a multi-factor authentication process for government contractors accessing the Mass Mod Portal. This applies to both new and existing users. According to GSA, the change aligns with the agency’s IT modernization efforts to build and maintain a more modern and secure infrastructure for its IT systems.
What to Expect
To register for Multi-Factor Authentication, navigate the Mass Mod home page and click on the “Register” button. After submitting your information, you will receive an email to activate your Multi-Factor Authentication account. The system will then walk you through the next steps to set up the Multi-Factor Authentication. Steps include setting up Google Authenticator in addition to email authentication. For detailed instructions, please view this GSA user guide.
There are a couple of things to keep in mind as you start this process and accept the Mass Mods.
- The MAS Refresh #4 Mass Mod is coming on August 14, 2020. In order to sign this, you must have the multi-factor authentication process set up.
- The move to Multi-Factor Authentication only impacts the Mass Mod portal. It does not impact the digital certification requirement for the eOffer/eMod application.
- Only authorized negotiators listed on the contract will be able to sign Mass Mods on behalf of a company.
