Quick Start Process for Vendors

This page is about Quick Start Process for Vendors.

The Industry Liaison Program has created a process to ensure that information about your company's products or services is routed to the appropriate FEMA contracting and acquisition professionals as supplemental market research.

Please follow the steps below to insure your company's information is captured. Failure to complete these steps may significantly delay your registration in our vendor information repository.

  1. Register with the System for Award Management (SAM).

    SAM is considered the primary market research tool for Contracting Officers. If you are not registered with SAM, please visit Should you have any questions about the SAM registration process, please contact the Federal Service Desk at 866-606-8220.
  2. Request a FEMA Vendor Profile from the Industry Liaison Support Center (ILSC) at

    Once you have completed the FEMA Vendor Profile, please email the document to the ILSC for processing. FEMA uses the Vendor Profile as supplemental market research and during disasters, forwards the information to the appropriate Contracting Officer(s) for the declared disaster areas, when applicable.
  3. Monitor FedBizOpps.

    Upon completing your SAM registration and FEMA Vendor Profile, search for federal procurement opportunities.
