Can I Update My TIN in SAM If It changes?


Yes, you can update your Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) in the System for Award Management (SAM) if it changes. It’s important to keep your SAM registration information accurate and up to date, including any changes to your TIN. Here’s how you can update your TIN in SAM:

  1. Access SAM: Log in to your SAM account using your username and password. If you don’t have an account, you’ll need to create one.
  2. Navigate to Your Entity Registration:
    • Once logged in, go to the “My SAM” tab, where you can access and manage your entity registration.
  3. Edit Your Registration:
    • Find your entity registration in the list of registrations associated with your account and click on it to access the registration details.
  4. Update TIN Information:
    • Look for the section of the registration where your Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) is recorded. This section may be labeled “Financial Information” or something similar.
    • Update your TIN with the new, correct number.
  5. Save Changes:
    • After updating your TIN, be sure to save your changes. SAM will prompt you to review and confirm the modifications.
  6. Certify and Submit:
    • Review the entire registration to ensure all information is accurate, including your updated TIN.
    • Certify that the information is current and complete.
    • Submit your registration to apply the changes.
  7. Confirmation: Once your changes are successfully submitted, SAM will provide a confirmation that your registration has been updated with the new TIN.
  8. Check for Updates: Periodically review your SAM registration to ensure that all information, including your TIN, remains accurate and up to date. Timely updates can help prevent issues with federal transactions and compliance.

It’s crucial to promptly update your TIN in SAM whenever it changes, as an accurate TIN ensures that federal agencies can process payments and awards correctly. Additionally, maintaining current information in your SAM profile helps you remain in compliance with federal regulations and demonstrates your commitment to accurate record-keeping.

Remember that maintaining the accuracy of all information in your SAM registration is an ongoing responsibility, and it’s essential for businesses and organizations involved in federal contracting or grant-related activities.
