MAINTAINING YOUR SAM REGISTRATION CAN BE OVERWHELMING.
HERE ARE A FEW THINGS PEOPLE TEND TO BE UNAWARE OF.
The System for Award Management (SAM) is a relatively new government website that consolidates the government procurement systems listed below and serves as a central registration site for government contractors.
Central Contractor Registration (CCR)
Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA)
Excluded Parties List System (EPLS)
While federal contract opportunities have varying requirements, there is a core set of data that is required across the board. Instead of repeatedly submitting the same company information with each bid, the government created procurement systems for companies to submit this information on SAM.gov.
Do You Need to Register on SAM.gov?
Any company that would like to do business with the federal government or needs to report subcontract information must register on the System for Award Management (SAM). SAM.gov registration is also a requirement for companies that want to obtain a GSA Schedule Contract.
SAM Registration Process There is no fee for you to register on SAM yourself. Go to https://www.sam.gov, create a user account, and then click "Register/Updated Entity" to begin the registration process. If you have the information below readily available, you can expect to spend approximately 1-3 hours entering the required data. Once submitted, a SAM registration is typically approved or "activated" in 3 weeks or less.
Having the following information will speed the SAM registration process.
Dun & Bradstreet DUNS number. A DUNS number is a nine-digit identification number for each physical location of your business. As with SAM registration, obtaining a DUNS number is free; it is provided by Dun & Bradstreet and can be requested at http://fedgov.dnb.com/webform.
Employer Identification Number (EIN)
North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code(s). NAICS codes are used to classify products and service offered by companies. You can search for the appropriate NAICS code by keyword on the Census website here: https://www.census.gov/eos/www/naics/.
Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) Code. If you do not already have a CAGE Code one will be assigned to you by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) after you complete your SAM registration.
The SAM registration process can be broken down into the four categories listed below.
Core Data: Company Name, DUNS, CAGE code, TIN, General & Financial Information
Assertions: Type of Goods/Services, Company Size
Representations and Certifications (Reps & Certs): Small Business Size Status, Acceptance of Common Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Clauses and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) clauses
