Q: Is there a way to search a registration to see if it is active in the system?
A: When an entity has provided SAM Search Authorization, anyone may check the status without being logged into an account.
Use the DUNS Number for the entity, and use the SAM Status Tracker by following the steps below:
- Select “Check Status” at the top or bottom of any page on the SAM.gov homepage.
- Enter a DUNS Number or CAGE Code and select Search.
- The SAM Status Tracker will show the current status of the entity associated with that DUNS Number or CAGE Code
If the entity’s administrator has chosen not to provide SAM Search Authorization, the record will not appear in SAM’s public search display. Only federal government users, whose e-mail address ends in .mil, .gov,edu, .dodea.edu, or uhuhs.edu), will be able to view these registrations.
*We will automatically select the public search display when processing the SAM.
