GSA’s Plan Fails, Causing a 74% Reduction in New SAM Registrations

May 10, 2018 4:50:44 PM / by Hayden Johnson posted in System for Award Management (SAM), General Services Administration (GSA), News

In March 2018, the General Services Administration began requiring notarized letters from entities registering in SAM.gov. SAM is an acronym that stands for the System for Award Management.

Finding Help with the System for Award Managment (SAM)

What is SAM?

If you are interested in working as a contractor for the government, there’s no way around it: You must complete a SAM registration. SAM is the US government’s System for Award Management. SAM.gov centralizes all business and agency information so that contracting officers can get the most accurate idea of what your business does, how they do it, and where they do it.

SAM is free to complete, but due to the complexity of the form and the possibility of punishment for inputting incorrect information, it is highly recommended to use a third-party registration firm such as US Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR). In this post, case managers from USFCR share some helpful tips for undertaking the SAM registration on your own versus the benefits to working them at USFCR.

SAM Registration_ Should You Do It On Your Own_

Contributed by Marianne Swager

At the end of fiscal year 2016, more than 1.7 million businesses had completed a SAM Registration, but less than 500,000 actually were eligible to receive a government contract. Why? Because the other 1.2 million or so did not complete their SAM Registration correctly, which meant they did not qualify for a government contract. Also, they face potential penalties of between $10,000 and $100,000 for not having a valid SAM Registration while still pursuing government contracts.
