    AFG E-MAIL ALERT | June 4, 2019

    VIEW ARCHIVE
    System for Award Management (SAM) Reminders

    This is a reminder that per the FY 2018 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Programs (AFGP) all grant applicants must have been registered in System for Award Management (SAM) prior to submitting their online application.

    All Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG), Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER), and Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) grant applicants must maintain an active SAM registration with current information at all times while they have an application pending or have an active federal award.

    FEMA may not make an award to an applicant if they do not have an active SAM.gov registration with current information.





    Therefore, we recommended that all applicants check their SAM.gov account to make sure it is ?ACTIVE.? Please ensure the following items are current in SAM and the DUNS number used in SAM is the same one you use for all FEMA applications:
    • Organization?s name
    • Address
    • Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS)
    • Employer Identification Number (EIN)
    • Banking information (type of account (checking or saving), routing number, and account number
    • Many websites may look official in appearance but are not. As a reminder, registration in the SAM.gov is FREE
    • SAM.gov registrations are only active for one year and registration must be renewed and revalidated at least every 12 months from the date previously registered to avoid being ?INACTIVE?.
    • This information should be consistent in all registration documents





    Should you need assistance with your SAM.gov account, there are several ways to get help:
    If you have questions or concerns about your SAM.gov registration, please contact the Federal Support desk at https://www.fsd.gov

      What does the email look like? I got something similar above, but I didn't see any grant numbers. Where did you see the grant number?

          Went out to everyone, since they're only going to ask those who are up for award to register in GO, which requires a current SAM registration, they're just trying to get ahead of the curve.

          Also for anyone that keeps typing in sam.gov in their browser and thinking the site is gone/down, they don't have URL forwarding. The correct link is https://www.sam.gov/SAM/ which appears to be down right now....par for the course...

              Was supposed to go to everyone, probably sending in phases.

                What about the difference with the SAM emails that had the name, address and reference grant number in it, as the one Mr Lyman received above? We received the SAM email but there was no grant number on it. Maybe that?s the tip off this year??

                      I received the generic bulk SAM email from FEMA on 06/04 titled FY 2018 System for Award Management (SAM) Reminders

                      Late this afternoon I received another email from [email protected] titled Reference: EMW-2018-FO-03110. This email contained the same information as the 06/04 email however specifically referenced our grant.

                          I got this same thing with the generic one earlier this month then again with a specific reference to grant number just this morning.

                            They resent the bulk emails because not everyone got them the first time, emailing code crashed so fixed and reran everything again.

                              So if you got the email with your application number in it that is No Guarantee you might have an award sometime in the future?
