Government Registrations
Companies positioning themselves to pursue and compete for government contracts at all levels must, in most cases, be registered with the applicable government agency. At the U.S. federal level, registration in the System for Award Management (SAM) is mandatory. Small businesses and businesses desiring to be recognized as small, disadvantaged and/or HUBZone status will need to complete certain certifications with the Small Business Administration (SBA). Registration with the State of Oklahoma Department of Central Services provides prospective vendors with notification of businesses and contacting opportunities. County and city/local agencies may also require vendor registration. The OK APEX office can assist you in collecting the information you will need for SAM, SBA, and State of Oklahoma vendor registrations.
