If you are having trouble registering in SAM.gov, follow the steps below:

    1. To start the SAM Registration, access to the old registration itself is necessary. If no one has access, a notarize letter will need to be prepared.
    2. After access is granted, update the SAM Registration with relevant and recent information.
    3. After the registration is complete, it will go through IRS and CAGE/DLA validation.
    4. Once active, it must be renewed every year* to continue with any active federal contracts or grants.

*If it goes inactive, all payments will cease until it is activated again.
