A key prerequisite to sell to the federal government is registration in the System for Award Management (SAM).
SAM is the official U.S. government vendor registration system. SAM registration is free and valid for one year. Large prime contractors also require that a business be registered in SAM prior to doing business with them.
Beware of entities that charge a fee to help with your SAM registration! SAM registration is always free, and your PTAC counselor can help.
Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions on how to complete a SAM registration.
If you need assistance at any time, please contact your local MO PTAC counselor.
