The System for Award Management (SAM) is the official U.S. Government system that consolidated the capabilities of CCR/FedReg, ORCA, and EPLS. If you had an active record in CCR, you have an active record in SAM. You do not need to do anything in SAM at this time, unless a change in your business circumstances requires updates to your Entity record(s) in order for you to be paid or to receive an award or you need to renew your Entity(s) prior to its expiration. OPE grantees, potential grantees, and business entities are encouraged to note this change in the ED award system. Visit Grants.gov for more information regarding SAM and the grant process.
