Entering Core Data
The first step to register a new entity is to enter core details on your entity. Core Data includes, but is not limited to, an entity’s Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, name, address, Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) code or NATO Commercial and Government Entity (NCAGE) code, Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), general information, financial information, and details about any proceedings the entity may currently be involved in. Core Data is mandatory for all registration types. Once you have completed your Core Data, your entity’s information will be displayed in the SAM Public Search. Sensitive data, such as financial information will never be displayed, however, if you do not wish to allow the public to search for and view your record, you may “opt-out” of public display. For more information, see SAM Search Authorization.
