US Federal Contractor Registration is now offering free System for Award Management evaluations to vendors trying to get federal contracts.

In order to qualify for federal contracts, businesses once needed to complete their CCR registration and ORCA filing. However, the General Services Administration has recently replaced these systems with the new System for Award Management or SAM for short. Many users have reported issues using SAM and are unclear whether their registration is still valid or how to get registered on SAM for the first time.

In order to help vendors continue to be eligible for federal contracting opportunities, US Federal Contractor Registration is now offering a free SAM registration evaluation to all businesses. The evaluation will confirm the vendor’s current registration status and include advisement as to how to better qualify for federal contracts. To request their free evaluation, vendors should call the Contractor Helpline toll-free at (877) 252-2700 ext 1 or visit

“Since its deployment, SAM has been experiencing significant downtown and errors, creating difficulty and delays for contractors,” explained Eric Knellinger, President of US Federal Contractor Registration. US Federal Contractor Registration has been providing help to both private and public sector users throughout SAM’s launch, while the Federal Service Desk has been difficult to contact due to increased call volume. US Federal Contractor Registration has received a flood of incoming calls since SAM’s launch and are providing much needed help to both contractors and federal employees. “Many of the people we’ve talked to are facing deadlines and don’t have time to wait on hold for simple answers. Our Placement Specialists and Case Managers are well versed in how SAM works and have been interacting with the new site since its launch; they are well qualified and able to help anyone having trouble with the new system.”

During Fiscal Year 2012, the federal government has spent over $347 Billion on contract and grant awards, according to data reported on the USASpending website. The highest percentage of money has been spent in California, Virginia, and Texas, with those states receiving 10.31%, 9.98%, and 7.67% of all total spending respectively.
