Federal Processing Registry

Your first step in Government Contracting

Hassle-Free SAM Registration & Renewals


SAM Registration | ORCA Certification | CCR Registration | CAGE | FEMA

The System for Award Management (SAM) is your first step in receiving grants or conducting business with the US Federal Government.

Without an active SAM Registration, you cannot be compensated for past contracts or be considered for new contracts or Federal funding opportunities. The SAM registration will need to be renewed before contract payment occurs.

If your SAM has lapsed or is in danger of expiring, now is the time to renew so you do not lose out on contract or funding opportunities.

Your profile is necessary for compensation on contracts that have been fulfilled as well as future contract opportunities.

  • It’s required. In order to contract with the federal government businesses and agencies must complete the required registration with SAM.
  • Fast electronic payments. During your registration and anytime after you update your profile you can enter your preferred payment method, including electronic fund transfers, making it easier for government agencies to pay you regularly and on time directly to a bank account of your choice.
  • Incorporates all other databases. CCR, ORCA, FedReg, and EPLS are all phased out or in the process of being phased out in entirely. Entities only need to register in SAM, which maintains all important data about your business.
  • Get on the government search list. Procurement officers, contract specialists utilize SAM to identify a small business for prime and subcontracting opportunities. In fact, SAM is the primary source for federal government agencies, and even most state and local government agencies, to find potential vendors who might be interested in entering the government marketplace. Agencies also look for potential vendors based on the information kept in SAM for their set-aside contracts for underrepresented groups such as women-owned small businesses and veteran-owned business.
  • Streamlines and integrates processes associated with procurement awards. The information kept in SAM eliminates some of the redundancies that were present when different government agencies required vendors to register in one or more of the prior databases. While procurement processes may still vary from one agency to another, potential contractors need only to fill in their information once (making sure to keep the information up to date) for the process of being able to apply for government procurements.

Why Should I Renew My SAM Early?

In order to receive Federal Contracts, it is required that your business be registered in the system (or the System for Award Management). Having less than 60 days remaining on your Federal SAM Registration significantly reduces your chances of getting awarded a contract after placing your bid. Not updating the registration before this date may delay Federal payments, and will inevitably affect your future Federal contracts. Being that the systems do not update instantly after renewal, it is ideal to renew early. In order to maintain your “active” status, after either an address or POC change, you will need to renew at least 30 to 60 days early.

When You Don’t Need To Renew Your SAM?

  • A Dissolving or Retiring Business
  • Not planning on receiving grants or payments from the Federal Government

Thank you Mimi, for your work.

The process was long and grueling, but only because we went through a recent name change. Our FPR representative, Trell, was beyond professional, timely in responses, and a pleasure to work with. Five stars for Trell!

Sandy C

I had to use their service when I had issues with my registration update on the SAM’s website, Preston was amazing, he not only got everything done for me but made some necessary changes to the account.

I just completed working with Jada to have my registration renewed. My initial contact was Mike, who was quite clear and helpful. He advised that Jada would be in touch within three days. Jada made contact the next day, and the communication and assistance since has been superb. Thank you for the wonderful assistance.

Howard B

I have worked with Federal Processing Registry for over 5 years. They have been very helpful & professional.

Paul B

This service is definitely worth using! As an HR office of 1 this task was daunting to me when it was needed…esp with no one on-site to educate me how to do it. We purchased the 3 year plan and worked with Mimi all 3 years. She made the process so easy! The only thing I would change is that before the renewal time expired, I would hear from her, or the company that they were ready to start the process. I get so many solicitations from other companies, that its time consuming to distinguish what is a new solicitation and what is not. After a while, I start ignoring all notifications.

Sherry J

Nicole was extremely knowledgeable, patient and supportive in guiding me through this process. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing to ensure a thorough and accurate SAM registration was completed.

Sharon B

Dina offers the best guidance through the entire process. She is always pleasant and a pleasure to talk to. Thank you, Dina!

Dr Marie

Dina is amazing. I get “junk” mail continually throughout the months and at her request, forward them all to her. She determines if they are spam or legit. I couldn’t do this without her. My last two renewals have been with her. Truly, an amazing employee!


Nicole was extremely helpful, like a saving grace!!!! She is very knowledgeable and was able to help me with my SAM renewal in just a few short mins.

I recently had the pleasure of utilizing the Federal Processing Registry’s SAM (System for Award Management) renewal service, and I must say, I am thoroughly impressed. From start to finish, the experience was nothing short of exceptional.

Kevin N

We had some hiccups this year with our renewal. We had a change of personnel, and this is the first year the task of renewing was on my plate. I had no idea how to navigate the Registry to get our status updated. The whole idea of it seemed daunting. Until I was connected with an EXTREMELY helpful and knowledgeable agent, Mimi Fields. The patience and guidance she offered was outstanding. She walked me through every obstacle, answered every phone call and replied to every email. I could not be happier with the service she provided. True asset to her organization. Thank you, Mimi.

Mat K.

Preston is a rock star. He got done what I couldn’t. So well worth the money spent to engage these guys. He walked me thru the steps, and then took over the process when I continued to strike out. He was very professional and it has been a pleasure working with him! I’ll reengage them next year!

Rick K.

We have a handful of multifamily properties with government contracts. While we have often registered these internally, we needed assistance the past year as new verification rules were implemented. We worked with Trell Garland at Federal Processing Registry. She was very efficient, getting our companies registered promptly and accurately. She was knowledgeable about what was needed, explained it to us, and got the work done.

Drew L.

Our company has used Federal Processing Registry over the past five years. The service provided is unmatched! They easily navigated through all the changes and perform the time-consuming part of the annual SAM renewal. In a small company this is a priceless service since it frees up employee’s time to complete other company tasks. We are grateful for their repeated excellent service.

Janice B.

I am visually impaired. I was referred to Federal Processing Registry by a friend who is also visually impaired. I want to express my gratitude to the awesome team (especially Dina) who made it so much easier for people like me to renew our SAM registration. The service is worth every penny for people like me trying to navigate all the additional prompts. Thank you for making my life a little easier.

Dorothy J.

Recently I signed up with Federal Processing Registry to renew our SAM registration. But after thinking about it, we decided to do the renewal ourselves. So we canceled and they promptly refunded us. We had over a million dollars in outstanding payments due to us from our federal contracts.

Nearly six weeks later, despite our best efforts, we were unable to do the renewal. So many new steps and red tape. It was mind-boggling. We were now facing the real possibility of laying off employees and cutting back all expenses because of this.

So, hat in hand, we went back to them to help us out of this serious dilemma. They were able to get the renewal done for us. Literally saved our company. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Let the pros handle it.

I was lost and stuck trying to renew my SAM registration. So frustrated trying to do it on my own. We were coming up on the deadline to be able to receive our grant payment. Out of desperation I signed up for their service since they have a guarantee. I couldn’t be more pleased in how kind, patient and professional my processor was. There were complications but they solved all the issues for us and completed the renewal in time. If you are stuck, lost or have issues like I was, I highly recommend giving them a shot.

I just wanted to take a moment to compliment you and your department on an exceptional employee. We were attempting to change the POC for our SAM registration, and at our end we managed to invent a way to drive the machine off the rails. Marnie was an amazing help. I’m not sure how best to describe her disposition throughout the day, but she had me convinced that she had no other task on her to-do list today but to graciously and cheerfully assist just me in correcting our issues. It was as if she took great professional satisfaction in solving our problems and she left me with the feeling like we made HER day, when in fact it was really the other way around.

Thank you once again for all your assistance….this was a complicated registration especially when we were removing the retired person and adding me along with getting the entity under my name. Nice job, I could not have done this without your expertise. I truly appreciate all your help.

Federal Processing Registry Reviews
Susan S.

Although I began the process well before our expiration date, we were stuck in the morass of red tape, viscous circles, administrative headaches, and getting nowhere as the deadline rapidly approached.

Mary’s professional, kind, friendly approach helped keep me calm. She advocated for us and unraveled the red tape without once becoming frustrated, or upset. Her expertise and skill were obvious as she carefully explained the process, and where I had taken a wrong turn. In spite of the error being mine, she helped me navigate to where I was supposed to be, made certain our re-certification was completed, and that I had all the tools I needed to proceed with my job successfully.

She is a wonderful ambassador for your organization and I appreciate her very much.

Why Register?

The federal government purchases products and services from just about every industry, from space ship parts to staplers, but in order to do business with the federal government, you must have an active SAM registration. The government makes the registration forms available for free, but completing the SAM Registration on your own can take between 20 and 40 hours — and, making sure your Registration is current and complete can take even longer.

In 2016, the General Services Administration (GSA) made 77 client-facing enhancements and changes to the System for Award Management (SAM), including seven revisions to FAR subpart 4,18, FAR 52.204-17, FAR 52.204-3, and FAR 52.212-3. These changes affected the type of information a company must submit when completing a SAM Registration. For companies with current SAM Registrations at the time these regulation changes went into effect, the SAM Registration had to be updated to remain in compliance. The GSA also made an estimated 500 changes to Schedules in place during 2016, and we made sure that our clients with affected Schedules remained in compliance with these changes.

The Federal Processing Registry is a professional, licensed, and bonded independent third party that assists entities needing help getting their System For Award Management (SAM) registration completed.

We specialize in assisting those who find SAM renewal challenging. Our expertise ensures a smooth, hassle-free experience for our clients, akin to how many rely on accountants for tax preparation. While some manage on their own, our professional assistance ensures everything is done correctly, providing peace of mind and efficiency in the process. Just like accounting, our field requires specialized knowledge, which we offer to streamline your SAM renewal needs.
