Vendor Registration with the U.S. Government
a) DUNS registration
The first step is to obtain a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, which is issued and maintained by Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) and verifies the existence of a business entity globally. Local contractors may request the DUNS number from Bisnode/D&B Austria’s Office at http://www.bisnode.at/service/d-u-n-s-nummer/
b) NCAGE – NATO Commercial and Governmental Entity (NCAGE) Code.
To receive an NCAGE please submit a request online at https://eportal.nspa.nato.int/AC135Public/scage/CageList.aspx
c) SAM Registration
The System for Award Management (SAM) is a central database for use by U.S. Federal Government agencies. There is NO fee to register for this site. Each vendor is responsible for providing accurate and up-to-date information Detailed information about SAM is available online at http://www.sam.gov. User guides and webinars are available under the Help tab.
To register online, go to the SAM web portal above– select “Create User Account”. You will need your DUNS number and NCAGE code during registration (see more information above). We kindly ask for your patience during the registration process as it is not a simple task.
The U.S. Government does not make advance payments – payment is made by Electronic Funds Transfer (ETF) after receipt and acceptance of ordered goods/services and receipt of a proper invoice.
Prior to performing any services or delivering any products, please ensure that you have received an awarded procurement document (e.g. Purchase Order, Delivery/Task Order, etc.) duly signed by the U.S. Consulate General Istanbul, General Services Office (GSO) Contracting Officer.
The Consulate General cannot pay for goods and services unless you have proof that it was ordered. Once you have received this document, and only then, your company is authorized to perform the services or deliver your product.
