Maintaining Your SAM and DSBS Registrations Can Be Overwhelming

Here Are a Few Things People Are Unaware of


Are you aware that contracting officers avoid doing business with vendors who are less than 60 days from expiration?



Did you Know that ORCA, CCR, and ELPS have all merged to become one integrated system known as the System for Award Management?



If there are any errors or incorrect data entered into the registration database, those errors will be at best migrated into SAM, and at worst, may complicate the migration process.



The next phase of migration will fold 10 different federal procurement systems into the one Integrated Awards System (IAE)



System for Award Management

The System for Award Management (SAM) has a relatively new government website that consolidates the government procurement systems listed below and serves as a central registration site for government vendors.

  • Central Contractor Registration (CCR)
  • Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA)
  • Excluded Parties List System (EPLS)

While federal contract opportunities have varying  standards and requirements, there is a core set of data that is required.  Instead of repeatedly submitting the same company information with each bid, the government created procurement systems for companies to submit this information on

Do You Need to Register on

Any company that would like to do business with the federal government or needs to report subcontract information must register in the System for Award Management (SAM Database). registration is also a requirement for companies that want to obtain a GSA Schedule Contract.

SAM Registration Process

There is no fee for you to register on SAM yourself.  You can go to, create a user account, and then click “Register/Updated Entity” to begin the registration process.  If you have all the information below readily available, you can expect to spend approximately 1-3 hours entering all the required data.  Once submitted, a SAM Registration is typically approved or “activated” in 3 weeks or less.

Having the following information will expedite the SAM Registration process.

Dun & Bradstreet DUNS Number:  A DUNS Number is a nine-digit identification number for each physical location of your business.  As with SAM Registration, obtaining a DUNS Number is free; it is provided by Dun & Bradstreet and can be requested if you visit

Employer Identification Number (EIN):  North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code(s). NAICS codes are used to classify products and/or services offered by companies.  You can search for the appropriate NAICS code by keyword on the Census website:

Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) Code:  If you do not already have a CAGE Code one will be assigned to you by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).

The SAM Registration process can be broken down into the four categories listed below.

Core Data: Company Name, DUNS, CAGE code, TIN, General & Financial Information
Assertions: Type of Goods/Services, Company Size
Representations and Certifications (Reps & Certs): Small Business Size Status, Acceptance of Common Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Clauses and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) clauses

What our happy customers say

  • I want to pass on a special thank you to Dana Sanders and Nicole Ryan for their commitment and dedication to their clients and the process associated with getting a company registered with SAM and CAGE.  They went above and beyond to help us work through getting our registration accurate and active.  They also had to work on several special issues related to our DUNS account which made it extremely difficult.  They were always professional and kind.  I always looked forward to speaking with them on the phone.  Thank you again

  • I am writing to advise you of the great work that Dana does.3D Systems is a complex multinational company with a few different government tentacles.Dana has been a great advocate in helping to streamline and update our SAM accounts, while doing so with the most awesome customer service.

    She has helped fix many of our issues, and has always communicated quickly with me in advising that things are updated.I truly value the fact that I have Dana on my side, and knowing that I can reach out to her at any time with questions (which are always answered!).

  • Dana & Careigh – I can’t begin to express my appreciation for all the work and help and hours you spent on straightening out my SAM registration.  I am over the moon happy!!!  As you know, I am very busy and have limited spare time to work on any other than my regular work.  So trying to straighten out the error on the SAM registration, by myself, would have been impossible.

    The two of you have been beyond helpful and pleasant to deal with, when I have been at my wits end.  If there was an award for going over and beyond helping someone you two deserve it!!!

    Again, thanks so really takes a big stress off my plate.  You guys are the best!
