The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) announced Monday that it has completed the integration of beta.SAM.gov and SAM.gov. The updated SAM.gov is now the system used to register to do business with the federal government, search for contract opportunities, find wage determinations and more.
The new website is intended to make it easier for small businesses to do business with the government and to bring all of the content once housed in two separate sites into SAM.gov while incorporating critical updates to website cybersecurity, design and functionality.
“We continue to make great strides with many FAS systems regarding security, ease-of-use and reducing burden for our customers. The launch of the new SAM.gov today is another step toward all of those goals, with President Biden’s recent executive order on cybersecurity foundational to our efforts,” said Sonny Hashmi, commissioner of the Federal Acquisition Service commissioner and a Wash100 Award recipient.
The site features a single sign-on across multiple applications and data sets, a centralized workspace to manage work, more robust search functionality, enhanced homepage design and display of the unique entity identifier.
“Today marks a significant step forward in our ability to deliver to our users a unified system that enables them to more easily do their jobs and the work of the federal government,” commented Judith Zawatsky, GSA’s assistant commissioner who oversees the Integrated Award Environment.
