Registering your NGO in the System for Award Management (SAM) has several benefits if you plan to do business with the Federal government or apply for federal awards. Here are some reasons why:

               WHY SHOULD I REGISTER MY NGO IN WWW.SAM.GOV?



1. Access to federal awards: SAM allows you to register to bid and apply for federal awards. By registering in SAM, you can participate in the procurement process and compete for government contracts or grants.

 

2. Centralized information: SAM centralizes information about grant recipients, providing a central location for grant recipients to change organizational information. This makes it easier for the government to manage and track information about organizations doing business with the Federal government.


3. Grant application process: SAM is used by Grants.gov to establish roles and IDs for electronic grant applicants. Once you complete your SAM registration, you can continue the registration process on Grants.gov.


4. Unique Entity Identifier (UEI): SAM provides a Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) number, which replaced the Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number. The UEI is a non-proprietary identifier provided by SAM and is used for identification purposes.



5. NATO Commercial and Government Entity (NCAGE) Code: If your NGO is a foreign entity, you may need to obtain a NCAGE code for each DUNS number you plan to register in SAM.


To register your NGO in SAM, follow these steps:


1. Visit the System for Award Management website at http://www.sam.gov/.

2. Follow SAM's online instructions in their Help tab to create a user account and register or update your entity's SAM account.


Remember that SAM registration requires annual renewal, so it's important to keep your information up to date to continue benefiting from the opportunities provided by SAM.
