I read this on Fed Scoop in March of 2019. The contract was awarded to Enst and Young for the next 5 year. 41.75 million dollar contract. It did state they were looking to phase out DB. When you go to set up a SAM account now it still ask for DB number but you will soon get a new SAMMI SAM Managed Identifier number. DB will still provide some reporting and data integrity service.
