Alliance NW Conference 2012
Americraft Showplex Exhibition & Conference Center, Puyallup, WA, USA
Alliance NW Conference is led by the WA PTAC with the support of federal agencies and state offices to provide businesses with a single day of networking and procurement training opportunities.
2012 Opening Presentation
System for Award Management (SAM)
GSA Integrated Acquisition Environment (IAE) has begun consolidation of 8 federal procurement systems and the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance into 1 new system—the System for Award Management (SAM). This consolidation and integration will streamline processes, eliminate the need to enter the same data multiple times, and save taxpayer money. SAM will be developed in functional groupings, starting with Entity Management, which includes the capabilities found in the CCR/ FedReg and ORCA legacy systems, and the exclusions portion of Performance Information, which includes the capabilities found in the EPLS legacy system. These capabilities are scheduled to be available in SAM in May of 2012, and the associated legacy systems will be retired. This first phase will affect all vendors and grant recipients who register in CCR/FedReg, financial and many other systems that use the CCR/FedReg data, and contracting officers and federal agency representatives who deal with vendor qualifications and debarment issues. Subsequent additions of capability will occur in phases through 2014 and possibly beyond.
