Why Your Business Needs A SAM (System for Award Management) Registration
If you’re a small business trying to increase your market share in the competitive business climate of today, getting your SAM Registration is not just important – it’s critical. A SAM registration, is the first step to doing business with the world’s #1 consumer, the United States government.
All federal agencies use the SAM database to identify businesses registered to do business with federal, state, and local level government. Both military and civilian agencies utilize SAM for a number of sourcing and procurement needs. They additionally use SAM to identify businesses with disadvantaged business designations such as WOSB or VOSB.
In the Federal Government’s pursuit of assisting small businesses, many federal contract officials base their recommendations for set-aside contracts on companies with their SAM Registration. Additionally, prime contractors utilize the SAM database to identify subcontractors/suppliers to meet procurement requirements for allocating work to businesses.
It’s pretty easy to see why registering your business with SAM could be advantageous.
The SAM Registration Process
The registration process has several steps and should be completed very carefully. This is to ensure timely acceptance so you don’t miss out on solicitations due to errors or incomplete information in your SAM registration. An estimated 20% of companies are currently registered in SAM with errors or incomplete information. As a result, government or prime contractors seeking the services or disadvantaged business designation they offer, will not be able to find them.

Registering your business with SAM opens the door to opportunities that can help you increase your business presence and market share in the industry you operate in.
Why? In a word – visibility.
To be sought out for what your business offers, you must be visible on every level. Successfully registering with SAM makes your business visible and accessible to every civilian and military federal agency out there who would otherwise not be aware of what your business has to offer. And you don’t have to navigate the process alone. After all, you are trying to run a business.
