Start a SAM Registration

A SAM registration is required for any entity to bid on and get paid for federal contracts or to receive federal funds. These include for profit businesses, nonprofits, government contractors, government subcontractors, state governments, and local municipalities.

Start a New SAM Registration

Start a new System for Award Management (SAM) Registration in order to work as a federal contractor or receive business or nonprofit grants. Once approved, your SAM Registration will be valid for one year.

Renewal of SAM Registration

A SAM registration must be renewed each year to remain active and compliant. SBP recommends renewing 90 days prior to the SAM expiration date. If you are renewing an existing SAM registration, please click here.
