New procedure requires a notarized document for government contracting SAM users —

Why?  The Federal System for Award Management may have been hacked.

We just renewed our SAM registration to remain active on the Federal System for Award Management system,  and experienced the new registration process.

There is a new requirement for new and existing SAM registrants.  A notarized statement must be “snail-mailed” to the SAM Registration office.  Failure to do so will put your registration on hold.

The form is fairly simple to complete (way easier than registering) and also requires a notary’s signature.

I’ve loaded the form on the website:  SAM_Notarized_Form

Call me if you have questions.  This is no place for rookies.
