System for Award Management (SAM)

System for Award Management (SAM)

16 November 2018

The System for Award Management (SAM) is a Federal Government owned and operated free web site that consolidates the capabilities in Central Contractor Registration (CCR)/FedReg, Online Representations and Certifications Applications (ORCA) and the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS).

Both current and potential government vendors are required to register in SAM in order to be awarded contracts by the Government. ABC Sales & Services is required to update or renew our registration annually to maintain an active status. SAM allows Government agencies and contractors to search for ABC Sales & Services based on our ability, size, location, experience, ownership, and more.

SAM allows users to search for firms certified by the SBA under the 8(a) Development and Hubzone Programs. SAM also incorporates the ORCA system which is web-based system where the vendor provides required information about the firm (e.g., accounting procedures; travel policies) and verifies that the firm meets certain Federal requirements (e.g., complies with equal opportunity legislation).

SAM validates the vendor's information and electronically shares the secure and encrypted data with the Federal agencies' finance offices to facilitate paperless payments through electronic funds transfer (EFT). Additionally, SAM shares the data with Government procurement and electronic business systems. A vendor only needs to input business information in one database, which will then automatically populate the SBA database.
