DoD, NASA, GSA Issue Final Rule on System for Award Management Registration

The Defense DepartmentNASA and the General Services Administration have released a final rule that seeks to revise the instructions for System for Award Management registration.

A Federal Register notice posted Wednesday says the final rule is set to take effect on Oct. 26 and amends the Federal Acquisition Regulation to require vendors to register through SAM prior to bid submission.

The regulation would direct contracting officers to use the name and address in the offeror’s SAM registration for the unique entity identifier.

The three agencies released the final policy two years after they proposed the rule and sought public comments.

The notice contains the agencies’ responses to feedback about the rule’s potential effect on competition and submission of offers as well as public burden.
