You can prepare now!
The first time you log in to SAM.gov after June 29, 2018, you’ll be asked
to create a login.gov user account (assuming you don’t already have one).
Going forward, you will use your login.gov username and password every
time you log in to SAM.gov. Your current SAM.gov username and password will
no longer work.
Login.gov is a service that offers secure and private online access to
government programs, such as federal benefits, services, and applications.
With a login.gov account, you can sign into multiple government websites
(including SAM.gov) with the same username and password.
If you already have a login.gov account check the email address
associated with it. If your current login.gov account matches the email
address associated with your SAM.gov account, you are ready for the new
login process. Otherwise, you will need to create a new login.gov account
the first time you log in to SAM.gov after June 29, 2018.
What will I need to do AFTER June 29?
Through SAM.gov, create a login.gov account (if you don't already have one). Your old SAM.gov username and password won't work anymore. You'll need to:
· Create a login.gov account if you don’t have one. You only need to do this once.
· If you have a login.gov account, check the email address. - If you already have a login.gov account, the associated email address must match the email address associated with your SAM.gov account in order to migrate your roles. If the email addresses don’t match, you’ll need to create a new login.gov account.
· If you don’t have a login.gov account, enter an email address. Use the same email address you use for SAM.gov. If you don’t currently have a SAM.gov account (are a brand new user, for example), you may use any email address you have access to.
· Create a new password.
· Pick how you want to receive security codes. You need a working phone number (mobile or landline) or an authentication app (installed on your mobile or on your computer). Login.gov will use your phone or your authentication app to send you a one-time security code for authentication.
How do I sign into SAM.gov after I create my Login.gov account?
Every time you select “Log In” on SAM.gov, you'll go to the login.gov sign-in page. You need to enter your login.gov email address, password, and the one-time security code that you receive.
