      Register your business in The System for Award Management (SAM), then register with Los Alamos National Laboratory

      Los Alamos National Laboratory requires any business interested in procurement opportunities with the Laboratory to have a DUNS Number for each facility/site office and have each facility/site office registered in the System for Award Management (SAM).


      Los Alamos National Laboratory may accept a supplier's representation of its size and socioeconomic status as a small business, small disadvantaged business, veteran-owned small business, service-disabled veteran-owned business, or a women-owned small business in SAM if the supplier is registered in SAM and the supplier represents that the size and socioeconomic status representations made in SAM are current, accurate and complete as of the date of the offer for the subcontract.

      Note: There is NO FEE to register, or maintain your registration, in the System for Award Management (SAM.gov). If you receive an email from a company claiming to represent SAM.gov, be cautious. If you get an email from a company offering to help you register in SAM.gov asking you to contact them and pay them money, be cautious. These messages are not from the Federal Government. It is FREE TO REGISTER in SAM.gov for any entity.

      For free assistance with SAM registration please contact a local Small Business Development Center(SDBC), you can find a center near you at: http://americassbdc.org/ or a local Procurement Technical Assistance Center(PTAC) or Program(PTAP) at; https://www.sba.gov/tools/local-assistance/ptac

      *NOTE:  Your Registration in SAM does not register you in the Los Alamos National Laboratory Procurement System to do business with the Laboratory.
