Guide to SAM Registration
Prior to all bid submittals, as well as purchases where federal funds are used, vendors must register with the System for Award Management (SAM) or have an active registration with SAM.
The System for Award Management (SAM) is the official registration required prior to bidding on a contract with any federal government agency, including local governments who receive federal funds.
Registering online is accomplished on the SAM website at www.sam.gov.
Information concerning the process can be found in the Guide to SAM Registration.
