SAM Registration FAQ’s
What is a CAGE Code?
The Commercial and Government Entity Code (CAGE) is a unique identifier that is given to suppliers of the federal government. The CAGE Code is used to provide a standardized method of finding businesses.
What is an Entity?
If you do become certified with the SAM registration, your company/business will be referred to as an “Entity.”
Where Do Buyers Look?
Government buyers refer to the System for Award Management (SAM) and Dynamic Small Business Search (DSBS) to conduct research. Think of it like Amazon. You go on the SAM database and search for the product you need and what companies will supply it.
Why Is Optimization Important?
One-fifth of all registered businesses are currently considered ineligible for government contracts due to mistakes or omissions in their registration applications.
The average small business spends between $60,000 and $138,000 to pursue its first federal contract victory. Federal registration optimization is the first step in ensuring you are not included in either of these statistics. GSE can help you every step of the way.
How Do I Ensure I’m Competitive?

However, if your registrations are error-free, complete, and visually appealing, your entity will be ready to sell. Give us a call to get started with the optimization of your SAM registration.
