Central Contractor Registry to be replaced by "SAM" will not be available after July 24, 2012

Monday, June 23, 2012

A new System for Award Management (SAM) will replace the Central Contractor Registration (CCR), Federal Agency Registration (FedReg), Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA), and Excluded Parties List System (EPLS) on Monday, July 30th.

CCR will not accept any new records or updates to existing records after close of business Tuesday, July 24th. That means there will be no CCR updates to Grants.gov from Wednesday, July 25th until SAM goes live on Monday, July 30th. As you may know, it takes at least a day after a CCR registrant receives the activation notice for their information to be available in Grants.gov.

  • How does the transition impact new registrants?
    • CCR will not process any new registrations on Wednesday (July 25, 2012), Thursday (July 26, 2012), Friday (July 27, 2012) or over that weekend. Since it takes a day for CCR data to populate in Grants.gov, if a new registrant who is trying to apply for a grant on Grants.gov is not active in CCR by Monday (July 23, 2012), their active status will not likely appear in Grants.gov prior to SAM going live.
  • How will the transition impact current registrants?
    • If a current registrant’s record was set to expire between July 16, 2012 and October 15, 2012, we are extending their expiration date by 90 days. They will receive an e-mail notification from CCR when we extend their expiration date. They will receive standard e-mail reminders once SAM goes live to update their record based on this new expiration date. Those e-mail notifications will come from SAM.
