Attention All Federal Contractors: Transition to SAM.Gov Underway Now

The federal System for Award Management (SAM), which consolidates a variety of existing government databases including the Central Contractor Register, will be in place shortly.

The transition to SAM started today, meaning government contractors will not be able to enter new CCR profiles or update existing CCR profiles between now and July 29th.

The government provides a summation of what to expect on the CCR website here and you can access the System for Award Management at

All federal contractors should familiarize themselves with the SAM system now as this consolidated system will perform the functions of CCR, ORCA, and a variety of other databases pertaining to the federal contract awards process from here forward.
