During President Obama’s State of the Union Address yesterday, it was announced that the minimum wage would be raised to $10.10 an hour for registered government contractors. The minimum wage increase will only be valid for new contracts released and posted on FedBizOpps (FBO), the federal government’s database for solicitations. In order for businesses to receive these increased wages for their workers, they must first be properly registered in System for Award Management (SAM).

SAM is the federal government’s database in which every contractor interested in federal contracts, grants and awards must be registered in. However, the SAM registration since its birth has brought nothing but problems to contractors. The Georgia Tech Procurement Technical Assistance Center “estimates that a high percentage of the 600,000 firms presently registered in SAM have errors in their records. The mistakes range from misspelled words to empty data fields, to incomplete entries, to selection of incorrect procurement codes, and other flaws. As a result, these vendors miss-out on government contract opportunities either because they are screened out for not exhibiting attention to detail or because of incomplete information they cannot be identified by government buyers.” That is why US Federal Contractor Registration, the world’s largest and most trusted third party registration has been helping businesses well before the inception of SAM with their government registration.

US Federal Contractor Registration has registered private sector businesses such as McGraw Hill, HP, Wells Fargo, Xerox, GoodWill, Dixie, UPS, Heinz, Sheraton Hotels, Marriott, Westin, Interstate Oil, CITI, and Coldwell Banker. As well as academic institutions and colleges like NYC, Northwestern, Oxford, Southwestern, and Mercer. Numerous federal agencies like US Army, US Navy, Veteran Affairs and United States Department of Agriculture have also had their government paperwork facilitated by US Federal Contractor Registration Case Managers.

US Federal Contractor Registration pairs businesses with a dedicated Case Manager who help them every step of the way, from initial registration to bidding on contracts. If you are not registered in SAM or are an existing member and due for your Semi Annual Check Up, call the Contractor Helpline at (877) 252-2700 Ext 1.
