System for Awards Management (SAM) - Disaster Relief Information

Remember:

• Registering does not mean you will get a contract, you have to market your company!
• Make sure you enter the data the same in all the various registrations. Use the same company name, address, numbers, e-mail and web addresses. This will make it easier for government agencies to cross check your information.
• The System For Awards Management (SAM) is the base registration for all federal databases. This has to match the information you submit to the IRS and Dun and Bradstreet.
