Additional CAGE Code Requirements in the System for Award Management (SAM)

As of November 1, 2014, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Subpart 4.18 – Commercial and Government Entity Code (CAGE) requires offerors to answer questions about their entity’s ownership in order to maintain an active registration in the System for Award Management (SAM).  Offerors, if owned or controlled by another entity, must provide the CAGE Code and legal name of that entity to their Contracting Officer.  If you do not update your entity’s registration, your entity’s registration will expire.  The term Offeror here refers to the business establishment or entity being registered in SAM to do business with the Federal government.

Do you have questions about this new CAGE Code requirement or are you stuck in SAM? Contact BH Sky for help in updating or renewing your entity record today.

Additional Information

The General Services Administration (GSA) has provided a Quick Start Guide as a resource for contractors that includes definitions of terms, steps to respond in SAM and what to do if an owner does not have a CAGE Code.  To access the Quick Start Guide to CAGE Ownership of Offeror, click here.

For additional information about CAGE Ownership of Offeror requirements, GSA asks contractors to contact the Federal Service Desk.
