U.C.E.D.C. Event: Navigating the Registration Process for SAM (System for Award Management)
The System for Award Management, or SAM, is a government-wide portal that consolidates multiple systems and information sources used by the federal government in conducting the acquisition and financial assistance for cooperative agreements and grants. In order to do sell your products or services to the federal government as a contractor, you are required to register your business in SAM. There is never any cost to register in SAM and free help is available for those who need it at a local Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) in their geographical area. To find a PTAC that serves your location/area, please visit: https://www.aptac-us.org/find-a-ptac/ SAM is the primary supplier database for the federal government for collecting, validating and storing data from suppliers and then making that data available to various government acquisition agencies. An active SAM registration opens the door to the largest buyer of products and services in the nation, the U.S. government, which is why thousands of small business owners apply for SAM registrations each year. In this webinar, we’ll walk you through the registration process. You’ll also learn about what information you need to register, why a business should apply for a SAM’s number and much more.
