Register your business
Effective 1 January, 2016, LANL is implementing a new business process in which any business interested in procurement opportunities with the Laboratory will be required to register in the System for Award Management (SAM).
The System for Award Management (SAM) is the primary supplier database for the federal government.
- Government Registration within the System for Award Management (SAM)
- Registration in (SAM) requires completion of all information including checking all appropriate boxes for NAICS codes and Small Business Socio-Economic Categories Small Business Definitions.
- For any Wholesale Trade or Retail Trade business concern that uses a 42, 44, or 45 series NAICS code; These NAICS codes shall not be used to classify Government acquisitions for supplies. They also shall not be used by Federal government contractors when subcontracting for the acquisition for supplies. The applicable manufacturing NAICS code shall be used to classify acquisitions for supplies. A Wholesale Trade or Retail Trade business concern submitting an offer or a quote on a supply acquisition is categorized as a nonmanufacturer and deemed small if it has 500 or fewer employees and meets the requirements of 13 CFR 121.406.
- The Small Business Administration has a very informative website, www.sba.gov.
- To go directly to the small business definitions go to http://www.sba.gov/category/navigation-structure/contracting/contracting-officials/small-business-size-standards
- For assistance with SAM registration please contact a local Small Business Development Center http://americassbdc.org/ or a local Procurement Technical Assistance Center or Program https://www.sba.gov/tools/local-assistance/ptac.
