WHAT IS SAM.GOV?
*The System for Award Management (SAM) is
combining federal procurement systems and
the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance
into one new system. This consolidation is
being done in phases. The first phase of SAM
which began late July 2012 included the
functionality from the following systems:
• Central Contractor Registry (CCR)
• Federal Agency Registration (Fedreg)
• Online Representations and
Certifications Application (ORCA)
• Excluded Parties List System (EPLS)
WHAT LEGACY SYSTEMS ARE MOST IMPORTANT
TO YOU?

Central Contractor Registry (CCR)

CAGE Code - Commercial And Government Entity (CAGE) Code is a five-character ID
number used extensively within the federal government, assigned by the Department of
Defense’s Defense Logistics Agency (DLA)

Online Representations and Certifications (ORCA)
GETTING STARTED IN SAM.GOV

Create a New User Account

Register as a New Entity
OR

Migrate a Legacy Account (if you had a previous
registration in CCR or ORCA)
TYPES OF SAM.GOV ACCOUNTS
An Individual account:
•Contains your own personal information.
•May stay with you even when your role in your organization or the permissions
you need to do your job change.
Just because you have an account does not mean you have the ability to create or edit
records, to do those activities you must have roles. With an account, Federal
Government employees can also request access to view sensitive data through search
or extracts.
A System account:
•Represents a particular information technology (IT) system.
•Is primarily for systems which need to send data to SAM (such as a Federal
Government contract writing system) or wish to automate the pull of the data
through extracts or web services.
•Is useful if multiple users in your organization need to access the same extract or
web service.
