Set Reminders: It’s a good practice to set reminders for yourself to renew your SAM registration before its expiration date. The process can sometimes take a bit of time, so doing it ahead of the expiration is wise.
Keep Information Updated: When renewing, ensure all of your information is current. This includes points of contact, banking information, size standards, etc.
Annual Renewal Is Mandatory: Even if you haven’t utilized your SAM registration over the past year, you still need to renew it annually if you want to keep it active.
SAM.gov Notifications: Typically, the SAM system will send notifications to registered entities reminding them to renew. Ensure that the contact information you provide is accurate so you receive these notifications.
In summary, even if you haven’t been actively using your SAM registration, it will expire one year after your last update or initial registration. Renew it annually to keep it active.
When you enlist the assistance of the Federal Processing Registry, the reminders and renewals are taken care of for you so there is one less thing you need to worry about!
