In 2022, the Duns and Bradstreet (DUNS) number was phased out and replaced with SAM’s own Unique Entity Identifier (UEI). Obtaining that UEI is part of the process of registering in SAM, so you don’t “need” a UEI as you automatically receive one when you register for the first time.

If you are unsure if you have a UEI, follow the steps below:

    • At the top of this page, select “SAM * UEI Status Tool”
    • Input your company’s full legal business name (or CAGE Code, if known)
    • Solve the security question and select “Check SAM Status NOW”
    • Allow the page to generate a brief summary of your SAM Registration that includes:
      • UEI
      • Expiration Date
      • Primary NAICS Codes
      • PSC and FSC Codes
      • Primary POC’s
      • and more
    • If you are having trouble, do not hesitate to reach out to the USBRI Help Desk at 1-888-646-9998.

Need to Register or Renew?

If you checked your SAM Registration status and its set to expire in the next 4-6 weeks (or you don’t have one), start the renewal process now. Processing times are taking longer due to new procedures with SAM and USBRI is urging those who have ongoing contracting work with the federal government to start now. You do not want to miss out on payments due to a missed or lapsed registration. Begin the process now with a CRS by clicking the button below.
