Create User Account
Your CCR username will not work in SAM. You will need a new SAM User Account to register or update your entity records. You will also need to create a SAM User Account if you are a government official and need to create Exclusions or search for FOUO information.
You can register your Entity (business, individual, or government agency) to do business with the Federal Government. If you are interested in registering or updating your Entity, you must first create a user account.
All entity records from CCR/FedReg and ORCA and exclusion records from EPLS, active or expired, were moved to SAM. You can search these records and new ones created in SAM. If you are a government user logged in with your SAM user account, you will automatically have access to FOUO information.
WHAT IS SAM?
The System for Award Management (SAM) is the Official U.S. Government system that consolidated the capabilities of CCR/FedReg, ORCA, and EPLS. There is NO fee to register for this site. Entities may register at no cost directly from this page. User guides and webinars are available under the Help tab.
NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
Password reset reminder: Please note that SAM user account passwords need to be updated periodically to meet security standards. Instructions to reset your password can be found in the SAM User Guide. Choose a unique and strong username and password. Do not share your password and always log off when you step away --- it only takes a moment for someone to steal or change the password.

ATTENTION EXTRACT AND WEB SERVICE USERS
Support for the legacy-formatted extracts and web services in SAM ended on October 31st, 2014. Federal systems using SAM data must convert to the SAM-formatted extracts and web services. If you see "You do not have access to this extract" you need to submit a Data Access Request for the appropriate role by logging in with the account that needs the role. Go to "Data Access" then click on either "System Data Access Request" or "Individual Data Access Request" (depending on your user account type) and follow the prompts to submit the request. Visit the openIAE GitHub site for more information about SAM's data, web services, and RESTful API.
