SAM Entity Administrator Letter Template (with banking info)

Speeches Shim


The System for Award Management (SAM) is a computer system accessed by the Internet managed by the U.S. Government. Entities must have an active registration in SAM to do business with the U.S. Government. An “entity” is the company, business, or organization registering in SAM. Each entity is represented by a nine-digit unique entity identifier, the Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS®) Number as issued by Dun & Bradstreet.

Only individuals who are authorized to represent a particular entity, or individuals representing themselves as an entity, may register an entity in SAM. Accessing or using SAM, or information contained therein, for any unauthorized or illegal purposes, may have civil and criminal penalties, and may negatively impact the status of the SAM registration maintained for the entity.
