I agree Kurt one Department we helped out had an up date early and was told that they needed to do SAM, they were set on private and the were delayed 3-4 weeks just for having it set to private.
I was under the impression our ccr number had not expired yet and that SAM's was not needed until then. Is this incorrect?
OK, I am a little slow today. Been a long time waiting. I had registered with CCR with an old emaila ddress which I don't have access to. I am not sure if I received a request to update. I went onto the SAM site but unsure if I register new or try and find the CCR info. Any ideas?
sign into SAM, make a profile (it will ask your info) then import CCR. After it is done check it over really good and make sure you are public view. We had to answer a few questions too.
Folks if you are not sure if it has been done, or if your information is marked public or if you are currently registered then just jog in there and find out for sure.
I created a SAM account last night and migrated our CCR. I set the account to be viewed by public, but when I search for our account when I'm logged out I can't find it. Is their something I'm missing that didn't complete it.
Clear your browser history to get rid of all the usual internet junk that hangs out after you do stuff, then go back to the site and search on DUNS to see if you come up. SAM has been having software issues recently from what clients have told me that have tried to sign up, but there could also be an approval lag time to avoid duplicate records where back-end code is searching prior to truly adding your entry. Depending on the database there are immediate methods for doing this, but still could require human interaction for it to publish.
Also don't forget to answer any questions they sent out. Had a couple people handle the SAM part of the email but forget that there were additional questions in the email that needed a Yay or Nay to them as well as the SAM registration.
Click up, just found an update with no emails sent for a 1st timer so definitely posted today sometime. More SCBA. Guess I'll spend some time checking....since year end corporate paperwork is so much fun....
I'm new to this entire process, so hopefully this isn't irritating to the veterans amongst the group. I read this thread regularly to learn more about the process. I have a couple of questions that hopefully someone can help me out with.
1. Is there any way to know if our application made it to peer review? I check my application login page daily to see if there's an 1199.
2. We are up to date with CCR (scheduled to renew in late spring). Based on some previous dialogue, it looks like we need to convert to SAM right now? The FEMA page seemed to indicate that this wasn't necessary unless an award was made.
2. Convert to SAM ASAP. It needs to be in place prior to the award.
Apparently there was a later release too, got forwarded an email this morning from a 2011 awardee for the 1199A update. Wasn't there the first time I ran the list.
My department has never had an award, should i be getting signed up in the SAM system in hopes of getting an award? Do we have any idea when the computer DJ's will come out?
SAM should be done now regardless of award, like DHS "highly recommended" back a few months ago when that email went out from them saying everyone would need to be in it.
CDJs will probably happen before the end of February, maybe it will be "I love you NOT" letters for Valentines Day. They've tended to hit holidays like that with other releases in the past, sort-of off-color timing but not like there's a good day for them to be released...or received....
found an 1199 yesterday for cardiac monitor. boy was i surprised.
Found 2 Updates that weren't there when I spot checked at 11am CST, so must have just done them recently. Time to run the whole list....
