Historically, eligibility has been a hurdle for U.S. Government contractors and the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) to provide documentation from a government customer.  This has been especially challenging for contractors that are pursuing new contracts with the government but have not yet been awarded a contract. 

 

By adding SAM.GOV registrations to the qualification requirements, non-government service providers and contractors may prove eligibility without having to provide a government agency sponsorship letter or signed contract. Find out more in the Public Sector blog here
