Usher in the new system … Hello “SAM”
May 22, 2012
By: Lindsay Simmons
Next week – on May 29, 2012 – the Central Contractor Registration system will end. At that time the CCR, the Federal Agency Registration, the Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA), and the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS), will be transferred into the entirely new System for Award Management, or SAM.
Although some information is available regarding this transition to SAM, the government intends to provide additional information and training materials shortly. Contractors should follow these developments closely. CCR will stop accepting data at 11:59 pm on Wednesday, May 23, 2012 – that is, no new registrations or updates can be submitted using CCR after that time.
