System for Award Management

All Department of Defense vendors are required to register in the System for Award Management (SAM) website as the first step toward obtaining a contract. This requirement became effective in 1998 for all transactions and was supplemented by the Debt Collection Act which requires all payments for Federal contracts to be made via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).       


  • Payment of Personal Property and Freight Bills of Lading (BOL)
  • Payment of carrier vendor invoices
  • Maintain records of accounts payable
  • Settle loss and damage claims for worldwide government freight shipments
  • Establish debts relating to personal property shipments that exceed authorized entitlement
  • Administer transportation prepayment audit contracts.
