Say Goodbye To CCR and Hello To SAM
According to a post on Central Contractor Registration's website, "On May 29, 2012, the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) system is going away. CCR, along with Federal Agency Registration (FedReg), the Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA), and the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS), will be migrated into the new System for Award Management, or SAM." While some details about this transition to SAM are currently available, the government is planning on providing additional information and training materials soon, and contractors should follow these developments closely because the government is reporting that CCR will stop accepting data at 11:59 pm on Wednesday, May 23, 2012, and no new registrations or updates can be submitted via CCR after that time.
