SAM.GOV Changes Registration Procedures to Fight Fraud

Avoid Renewal Delays … take these two steps now.

Starting 01 July 2018 there are two important changes to your SAM.GOV registration – you need to:

  1. Create a Login.gov account and use that for accessing your SAM record (see the yellow banner at the top of SAM.GOV)
  2. Submit a notarized letter to SAM.GOV designating an “authorized Entity Administrator” who can make changes to your account (see the red ‘Alert’ text just below the blue menu banner on SAM.GOV)

According to SAM.GOV, until you set up your Login.gov account, your current SAM.GOV credentials will not work.

Upon your next registration anniversary, your renewal may be held up until you submit your notarized letter; any new registrants must submit the letter to open a SAM.GOV account.

You can read all about these changes on SAM.GOV; however, note that these two issues are dealt with separately on the website. It’s wise to get ahead of this and prevent an avoidable renewal delay – which could impact future contract awards.

Please note there are many companies offering to handle this on your behalf … for a FEE. There is no need to pay anyone to do this – the process is relatively simple and FREE.
