Final rule re: SAM registration

On September 26, 2018 DoD, GSA, and NASA published a final rule in the Federal Register at 83 FR 48691 to update the instructions for registration in the System for Award Management (SAM) and correct an inconsistency involving the timing of registration. In order to correct this inconsistency, the rule changes FAR 4.1102, 4.1103, 52.204-7, and 52.212-1(k) to require offeror registration in SAM prior to submission of an offer. The rule also requires contracting officers to use the name and physical address from the contractor’s SAM registration for the provided Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) (now the unique entity identifier) and removes the term “division name” from the FAR text at FAR 4.1102, clause 52.204-13, and provision 52.212-4. The final rule will become effective on October 26, 2018 (APTAC Newsletter, October 2, 2018)
