Finding Help with the System for Award Managment (SAM)

Nov 29, 2017 11:59:35 AM / by David Rockwell posted in System for Award Management (SAM)

What is SAM?

If you are interested in working as a contractor for the government, there’s no way around it: You must complete a SAM registration. SAM is the US government’s System for Award Management. SAM.gov centralizes all business and agency information so that contracting officers can get the most accurate idea of what your business does, how they do it, and where they do it.
