What is it?
The System for Award Management, or SAM website, is a US government-wide portal that consolidates the capabilities of multiple systems and information sources used by the Federal government in conducting the acquisition and financial assistance processes (which includes grants and cooperative agreements).
How does it work?
We will be searching the SAM website for entities with exclusion records. An exclusion identifies a party excluded from receiving federal contracts, certain subcontracts, and certain types of federal financial and non-financial assistance and benefits. If an entity or any of its principals are subject to an active exclusion, it means the entity is currently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible for the award of contracts by any US Federal agency.
This site is continually updated and improved based on user feedback and federal requirements.
The SAM database enables users to enter the name of an individual or entity and determine whether they are currently excluded. If a match is made on an individual, the database can verify with an individual's address or former address that the match is unique.
Who needs this search?
Companies who want to fight fraud, waste and abuse and foster quality, safety, and value of healthcare services.
Why run this search?
The SAM search will give insight into whether an applicant is subject to an active exclusion, or declared ineligible for the award of contracts by any US Federal agency.
