There are significant issues with registering or updating information in System for Award Management (SAM) right now. We STRONGLY encourage you to work with your Missouri Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) if you need to register or update information in SAM. They have the latest information and workarounds and can help you avoid lengthy delays in processing your requests.
