SAM.gov and FEMA GO have a working relationship. Automated sweeps of SAM.gov are conducted nightly by FEMA GO to pull over updated information.

SAM.gov is a free site where entities go to register to do business with the U.S government.

Additionally, SAM.gov is where entities can update, renew, check status of, and search for entity registration.

When using FEMA GO entities MUST have an active SAM.gov registered account in order to apply to FEMA through the FEMA GO System.

The FEMA GO System will validate SAM.gov prior to any funding from FEMA through FEMA GO.
