SAM.gov Changes You Need to Know About

The General Service Administration’s (GSA) Integrated Award Environment (IAE) is working hard to deter fraudulent activity in the System for Award Management (SAM.gov). We have already introduced several enhanced controls. More changes are coming that will impact you.

The recent requirement to submit a notarized letter which identifies each entity's authorized administrator is not changing. However, because of the work we’ve already done, some registrations will now be activated prior to GSA receiving and approving the physical notarized letter. This will be true for all registrations after June 29. If you don’t submit the notarized letter within 30 days, your registration may no longer be active. We will make this change in two phases:

  • Effective June 11, 2018, entities who create or update their registration in SAM.gov to apply only for federal assistance opportunities such as grants, loans, and other financial assistance programs no longer need to have an approved Entity Administrator notarized letter on file before their registration is activated. Federal Assistance entities still must mail the original, signed copy of the notarized letter to the Federal Service Desk. Failure to do so within 30 days of activation may result in the registration no longer being active.
  • Effective June 29, 2018, all non-federal entities who create or update their registration in SAM.gov will no longer need to have an approved Entity Administrator notarized letter on file before their registration is activated. All non-federal entities still must mail the original, signed copy of the notarized letter to the Federal Service Desk. Failure to do so within 30 days of activation may result in the registration no longer being active.

Up until June 29, users may still receive automated email notices from SAM.gov stating that the notarized letter is required prior to account activation. Please disregard that portion of the email.

 

There are some other critical changes coming soon to the way you log in to SAM. Please stay tuned to this space for information in the next few days. To prepare for the changes, make sure you know the email address you use to register your entity in SAM!
