SAM Registrations

SAM is the official government-wide database to register with in order to do business with the U.S. government, and the website can be accessed at

Each city has “A Unique Entity Identifier” (UEI) number, a unique 12-digit number that is used for reporting, registration, and annual registration renewal. To find your city’s UEI number visit the SAM website. The SAM registration must be renewed annually to maintain an active status to be eligible to apply for and receive federal funding, along with submitting the required funding reports. There is no charge for registering for or renewing your city’s SAM registration. 

Please note, that there are many websites that offer to facilitate the SAM process for a fee, many of which have been discovered to be scams and you should proceed with caution should you use an outside vendor to assist with SAM registration and renewal.

For technical assistance with SAM registration, registration renewal, and other assistance needed, visit, or call the Federal Service Desk at 866-606-8220.
