Jackeline Stewart, deputy press secretary at GSA, told Matthew Weigelt the move is part of the agency’s long-term vision to give the government a common acquisition platform.

According to Weigelt, the System for Award Management integrates three systems: the Central Contractor Registration system companies use to register certain business information before being considered for contract awards; the Online Representations and Certifications Application for submitting certifications on issues like company size and ownership status; and the Excluded Parties List System, a record companies suspended or debarred from federal contracting.

Stewart told FCW that acting GSA Administrator Dan Tangherlini recently called for metrics to show progress in implementing SAM, for which IBM is a prime contractor.
