As of February 1st 2019, Financial Assistance registrants will now have to complete the “Reps and Certs” (Representations & Certifications) section of the SAM Registration. This additional section is primarily comprised of multiple legal questions, notarized documents and possible other additional documentation requests. It is highly advised to have a lawyer review or assist in completing this section for the first time. Once submitted below, a CRS will contact and assist you in completing this new requirement section properly. Organizations can be banned permanently if they knowingly misrepresent information within this section.
Having less than 60 days validity left on a SAM Registration will negatively affect being considered or awarded contracts & grants as well as payments going on hold once your SAM Registration expires if not submitted for renewal early enough.
