The System for Award Management (SAM) is the federal government’s vendor database and award management platform for all federal payouts (grants, contracts, and loans). All awardees must use this system to collect payment and fulfill any reporting requirements mandated by the funding opportunity. For those who seek a new government contract, you can also use your SAM.gov account to search for and save open federal funding opportunities, federal assistance listings, and past awards.
Unfortunately, the process of registering is time-consuming and involves multiple steps. To make the process even more difficult, several major changes were implemented in early 2022 that can leave even seasoned SAM users frustrated and confused.
Our 5-page download offers tips and advice to help you breeze through SAM registration like a pro!
