Building Blocks to Become a Government Contractor

The first building block to become a government contractor is registering into the System for Award Management database. SAM.Gov.  In order to do business with all agencies of the federal government, you need to first register.

This registration provides the government with information about your company so that you can get paid.

Remember certain sensitive marketing information that you include in your registration should be sanitized because the government and the general public competitors have access to that information.  Be careful. Call your PTAC, we can help. Call 973-596-3105
