SAM.gov 180 Day Extension Granted
by Victoria Tollossa
If your business receives an email with the subject line, “180-Day SAM.gov Extension Granted for [Entity Name/DUNS/CAGE],” it is not spam!
The GSA, supporting the American Rescue Plan Act and Integrated Award Environment (IAE), is seeking to reduce the burden of renewal for certain schedule holders. For some vendors, there will be a 180-day extension for SAM.gov registrations that have expiration dates ranging between April 1, 2021, and September 30, 2021. This effort is intended as relief for those otherwise required to re-register during that time frame. Each entity registration will have 180 days added to its expiration date. Vendors impacted by this change will receive an email from [email protected] with the subject line “180-Day SAM.gov Extension Granted for [Entity Name/DUNS/CAGE].”
The new expiration dates will be included in the SAM entity management extracts and available through web services after the records are extended. The GSA plans to process extensions “in a deliberate, incremental manner over the course of several months.”
