Registration with the System for Award Management

Contractors that provide services to government agencies are required to file registration information with the System for Award Management (SAM), unless the purchase is made with a government purchase card.

Registration with SAM is easy. You can register online in a matter of minutes with SAM or call 1-866-606-8220. SAM uses the Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) to identify contractors. If you do not have a DUNS number, you may obtain one or call 1-866-990-5845.

Once you are registered in SAM, all of the information required to conduct future business with ARC -- or with any agency of the government -- is maintained in the system and only needs to be renewed once a year.

Please note that changing your business name, "doing business as" name, or division name in SAM without providing the responsible Contracting Officer a minimum of one business day's written notification will delay payment processing.
