What’s Changing at SAM Integration - Search Changes

After SAM.gov and beta.SAM.gov merge and become one system (called SAM.gov) on May 24, 2021, the ‘new’ SAM.gov will be more than a registration system only. You can expect changes to how you search for entity information. These updates apply to all SAM.gov users.

You are invited to participate in the next Integrated Award Environment online Stakeholder Forum on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. EDT.  Please register here for a meeting link to learn more about many of the changes coming.  

The improvements made to entity search functions incorporate user feedback heard from a wide variety of users. Throughout the process of creating the updated functionality of the new SAM.gov, we prioritized customer needs and feedback. The resulting product not only enhances and improves the overall user experience, but makes it easier to search for entity information. Check out our Before and After Comparison Guide for the new design.

Search improvements you should know about include but are not limited to:

  • The new look of the advanced search provides a more compact and streamlined search experience.
  • Advanced filters can be found on the same page as the search results allowing you to easily adjust the filters without having to start a new search or go to a different screen to edit the search. It is also easier to find, view, and download entity representations and certifications. 
  • The display of the filters in an easy-to-use list makes the search option easily accessible and expandable. You can view the full list of search options by clicking the bottom arrow..
  • Additional safeguards have been added to searching for entity registration information. All users will be prompted to sign in to view entity registration information. If a user does not have a SAM.gov account, they will need to create one. 
  • Federal users will now be required to request a role if they need access to For Official Use Only information or sensitive information about an entity. Agency administrators will grant these roles. 
  • The “Status Tracker,” a tool that allows you to check the status of your entity registration, will require that you be signed in.
  • You can limit your search to exclusions records only from either the entity information landing page or a new exclusions landing page.

Stay tuned to this space on Interact for more information about additional changes coming to the new SAM.gov on May 24.

* Please note that signing in is different from registering. You need to sign in to your SAM.gov user account through login.gov to search entity registrations. You do not need to register as an entity to search.
