Government Registration Guidance
With The Goal Of WINNING CONTRACTS
So SAM Registration is the first thing you will see, hear, learn about, and register for whenever you get started in this crazy world of Government Contracting. Is it important? Yes. Is it necessary to be registered in SAM to participate in government contracting? Yes. But will it lead to repeat business? No. MOST businesses, especially small businesses, get started by getting a phone call from an agency that has found them online or heard about them in some way and needs their products or services. That agency official, be it a contracting officer, program manager, or contracting specialist informs said company that in order to be eligible for this purchase they need to get registered in the System For Award Management, or SAM. Mr. or Mrs. business owner then struggles through the registration process themselves never really understanding the system, or they hire another company to help them get registered so that they can be set up and ready for the purchase from their friendly neighborhood contracting officer. Most of the time this initial registration process is successful and allows Mr. or Mrs. business owner to sell their product or service to this agency once, or if their lucky, multiple times; However, Mr. or Mrs. business owner is left thinking that any time the government needs their product or service they can simply be looked up through SAM and the process will repeat itself. At Government Contract Gurus we make sure your DUNS, SAM and DSBS are aligned, optimized, competitive and visible.
