System for Award Management Registration Process –
“a federal vendor registration platform”


Are you still baffled about SAM and the time-consuming detailed task of the registration? And how about the Security Measures?


The federal government purchases products and services from just about every industry, from space ship parts to staplers, but in order to do business with the federal government, you must have an active SAM (System for Award Management) registration and that is the first step in obtaining Federal contracts. OK, so maybe you registered in SAM and are not sure the information you entered is accurate.


Did you know that if you fail to renew your SAM registration yearly that you are at risk of being denied federal contracts/awards?  Are you aware that it is recommended to validate your SAM registration several times a year to make sure that your information is current in order to prevent possible lapse in Federal Payments?

To further increase security and deter fraud, has partnered with and implemented a multi-factor authentication for registered users. Are you aware that your current username and password no longer work and that you have to create a account?
