Can I Update My SAM Registration Information?


Yes, you can update your SAM (System for Award Management) registration information at any time. In fact, it’s important to keep your SAM registration accurate and up-to-date to ensure that your entity’s information is current for federal agencies and other organizations that rely on SAM for procurement and assistance purposes.

Here’s how you can update your SAM registration information:

  1. Access Your SAM Account: Log in to your SAM account using your username and password. If you’ve forgotten your login credentials, you can use the “Forgot Username” or “Forgot Password” links on the SAM login page to recover them.
  2. Navigate to Your Entity Registration: Once you’re logged in, navigate to your entity’s registration record. This is where you can review and edit your registration information.
  3. Make Necessary Updates: Within your entity’s registration record, you’ll find sections where you can update various pieces of information. These may include contact information, legal business name, tax identification number (TIN), size and type of business, certifications, and more. Ensure that you make accurate and complete updates.
  4. Review and Certify: After making your updates, carefully review the entire registration to ensure accuracy. Once you’re satisfied that the information is correct, certify the registration. Certifying confirms that the information is true, accurate, and complete to the best of your knowledge.
  5. Submit the Updates: After certification, submit the updates to SAM. You will receive a confirmation of submission.
  6. Allow for Processing: SAM will process your updates, which can take some time. The processing time may vary depending on the backlog and the nature of the changes.
  7. Check Status: You can check the status of your update in your SAM account. SAM will notify you once the update is processed and reflects the changes.

Remember that some updates, such as changes to your legal business name or entity structure, may require additional documentation to support the changes. Be prepared to provide any requested documentation promptly to expedite the update process.

Maintaining accurate and up-to-date information in SAM is essential to ensure your entity’s eligibility for federal contracts, grants, and other federal assistance programs. If you have any questions or encounter difficulties during the update process, SAM provides customer support services to assist you.
