On January 25, 2018, USCIS announced an additional requirement to the E-Verify program for federal contractors and subcontractors with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)  requirement. Effective January 5, 2018, new federal contractors and subcontractors with a FAR requirement must provide their Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) during the E-Verify enrollment process. As to existing E-Verify employers designated as federal contractors with a FAR requirement, they do not have to provide their DUNS number, but will be prompted to enter it in E-Verify when they update their profile.
