SAM Registration and SAM Renewal
Your first step to doing business with the Federal Government!
What Is a SAM Registration?
The System for Award Management (SAM) works as a payment gateway for contracts and grants. A SAM Registration must be active for a business to get paid. Being active in the SAM registry allows you to join in the billions of dollars being awarded to small businesses every year. A SAM registration renewal is required to maintain your status in the SAM system.
The United States Government is the largest purchaser of goods & services in the world. How would you like to be one of their suppliers? The government purchases only from SAM registered businesses. Therefore, the government doesn’t know you exist if you’re not in the SAM database. Make sure you process your SAM registration renewal in a timely manner each year.
SAM issues each company a CAGE code. What is a SAM CAGE code?
All companies registered with SAM will receive a SAM CAGE code. CAGE means Commercial and Government Entity Code. This code shows the government your approved to work. Also, your SAM cage code allows the Government to pay your company. This goes for all government funding, grants, and contracts. Your cage code will remain the same for each SAM registration renewal as long as your location has remained the same.

Can I register for SAM on my own?
System for Award Management or SAM registrations are a simple and easy process. It can be done at NO COST through SAM.GOV. However, it takes several hours and is often not completed properly.

Applications are, as a result, left unsubmitted or rejected by the government.

How often is SAM registration renewal required?
The SAM registration renewal must be completed yearly. The System for Award Management (SAM) was created to streamline the process of paying small businesses making payouts fast and easy. After a year, if you don’t renew you will stop getting paid. Renewing your registration every year shows you are still an option. This process is the same as it was originally. However, owners must be careful.
Can I renew SAM registration myself?
The process is the same as getting registered with SAM. However, you must match the information on your application with the information on file with SAM. Your renewal application will be rejected if it does not match. Anything new to your business must be reported to SAM before you complete your renewal. Addresses, phone numbers, NAICS codes, etc. if anything has changed you must update SAM registration first.
