How do I Report Changes in My Business Size or Status in SAM?

 

Reporting changes in your business size or status in SAM (System for Award Management) is essential for maintaining accurate eligibility information for federal contracts, grants, and assistance programs. Here’s how to report changes in your business size or status in SAM:

Reporting Changes in Business Size:

  1. Log In to SAM: Start by logging in to your SAM account using your username and password.
  2. Access Your Registration: Once logged in, navigate to the section of your SAM registration where you can update your organization’s information.
  3. Update Business Size: Look for the section that allows you to update your business size. This may include options such as “Small Business,” “Large Business,” “Disadvantaged Business,” or other relevant categories.
  4. Provide Documentation: In some cases, you may be required to provide supporting documentation or certification to verify your business’s new size status. Prepare any necessary documentation and attach it as instructed.
  5. Review and Confirm: Carefully review the updated business size information and any attached documentation to ensure accuracy.
  6. Certify and Submit: As part of the update process, you may be required to certify the accuracy of the information you’ve provided. Make this certification and submit the changes.
  7. Verification: SAM may conduct verification checks to confirm the accuracy of the updated business size information.
  8. Confirmation: You should receive confirmation that your SAM registration has been updated to reflect the changes in your business size.

Reporting Changes in Business Status:

If there are changes in your business status, such as becoming a certified minority-owned business, a woman-owned business, or obtaining a specific certification, follow a similar process:

  1. Log In to SAM: Log in to your SAM account.
  2. Access Your Registration: Navigate to the section of your SAM registration where you can update your organization’s information.
  3. Update Business Status: Find the section that allows you to update your business status or certifications. Choose the appropriate category and provide any required details or documentation.
  4. Provide Documentation: Depending on the change in status, you may need to provide supporting documentation or certification. Attach any necessary documentation as instructed.

It’s essential to report changes in your business size or status in SAM promptly to ensure that your eligibility information is accurate. Delays in updating this information can affect your ability to participate in federal contracting or grant opportunities, as eligibility for certain programs may be contingent on your business’s size or status.
