GSA has started requiring SAM registrants to use a login.gov account as an increased security measure on SAM.gov. Login.gov accounts provide a multi-point verification for users keeping all business information stored on sam.gov much safer.
For business owners not registered on login.gov, you have to create an account in order to continue to access SAM.gov. A few tips for registering at login.gov….
- The login.gov account needs to use the same email as your current sam.gov registration
- You will receive an email verification link on this email account
- A second security verification by either a cell phone or a landline phone is required to complete your registration
The process to create the login.gov account only takes a few minutes. The directions listed map the process from beginning to completion for account registration.
