GSA’s Site To Be Modernized on May 24, 2021

Arnall Golden Gregory LLP

Government contractors currently access the U.S. General Services Administration’s System for Award Management (referred to in the industry as “SAM”) for only a few fundamental tasks:

  • Register to do business with the U.S. government;
  • Update or renew their entity registration;
  • Check the status of an entity registration; or
  • Search for entity registration and exclusion records.

But, on May 24, 2021, GSA will update the SAM site to a “modernized environment.”

The new promises to be much more than a registration system; it will be updated to incorporate customer-focused functionality. Changes that users can expect after May 24, 2021, include but are not limited to:

  • A single user URL and login for all functions currently in;
  • A single personalized user Workspace based on your roles and the entity registrations you manage;
  • Landing pages with help specific to entity registrations, exclusions, and entity reporting;
  • Service Contract Reporting (SCR) and Bio-Preferred reporting access from the entity’s Workspace;
  • System account functionalities for non-federal users;
  • Login requirement to search entity registration data;
  • Optional identity verification for entity administrators (not required until 2022);
  • Streamlined search filter functionality;
  • Search for contract opportunities;
  • Find U.S. Department of labor wage rate determinations; and
  • Current registration functions
