Your SAM User Name and Password Will Stop Working By the End of June!

When the System for Award Management (SAM) was hacked earlier this year, GSA took a number of steps to increase security, including the requirement for a signed notarized letter, identifying your company’s Authorized Administrator.

To further increase security and deter fraud, SAM will be implementing multi-factor authentication for registered users at the end of this month.

Effective June 29, 2018, when you  login to, you’ll be asked to create a user account. Your current username and password will no longer work.

Take these steps now:

  • know the email address associated with your username and password
  • have access to that email, so you can receive a confirmation email from
  • have a cell phone or landline to receive a security code from
