SAM.GOV 101 – Know The Facts:
To simplify and streamline the Federal Procurement process, the U.S. Federal Government created – SAM or “the System for Award Management,” and implemented the system through their website – SAM.GOV. The system combined the Catalog for Federal Domestic Assistance and all other federal procurement systems into one entity. This includes Central Contractor Registration (CCR), the Excluded Parties List System, (EPLS) and the Online Representations and Certifications Applications System (ORCA). SAM.GOV is now a streamlined one-stop shop for all federal procurement activities and award functions.
Is Registering in SAM.GOV Mandatory to be Awarded a Government Contract?
Yes! In order to be eligible to provide products or services to the federal government in any capacity, you must first be registered in SAM. But you also must register with SAM.GOV if any of the following apply:

Frequently Asked Questions About SAM.GOV Registration and Renewal –
What do I need before registering with SAM.GOV?
Before visiting the SAM.GOV public portal, you’ll need to have the DUNS number, as well as the tax identification number or EIN, for your business.
You will also need all pertinent information about your business, including the date you started, physical location, mailing address and designated points of contact within your organization.
And finally, as a result of security concerns, all new SAM.GOV registrants, renewals or amendments to existing SAM.GOV registrations must be accompanied by a Notarized Letter to the Federal Service Desk identifying a designated individual authorized to represent the entity (company).
How long is my SAM.GOV Registration valid?
Once your SAM.GOV Registration is approved, it is valid for 1 year. It is critical to carefully monitor the date for renewal to avoid being barred from bidding on a Federal Contract or applying for a Federal Grant, due to an expired SAM Registration.
*Important to note:
The System for Award Management (SAM) is still in the process of integrating CCR, ORCA and EPLS. As a result, new SAM.GOV Registrations and Renewals may take several weeks to process.
There are two major factors that can lead to missed federal contracting opportunities – processing time and registration or renewal rejection due to errors in form completion.
