Important Information Regarding New Requirements For Receipt of Funding

All potential grant applicants who plan to apply for funding from the Colorado Division of Criminal Justice or any other agency must make sure that their agency has a Dun & Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number and has registered with SAM. These are required as part of the implementation of the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (Transparency Act) that went into effect January 1, 2009.

A DUNS number is a unique number that identifies an organization and helps track the distribution of grant money.  Verify whether or not your agency has a DUNS number and a current registration in SAM.  If your agency does not have a DUNS number, and/or is not currently registered in SAM, begin these processes now due to the time required to complete these.  Grant awards without a DUNS number and a current registration in SAM will have a Special Condition placed on award documents to complete this requirement within 30 days of the start of the grant project period.  It is imperative that this timeframe is met per reporting requirements under the Transparency Act.

To obtain a DUNS number online, go to the DUNS registration website at https://fedgov.dnb.com/webform/index.jsp or call the Dun & Bradstreet hotline at 1-866-705-5711.  You will receive a DUNS number within one day.  There is no cost associated with obtaining a DUNS number.  Your DUNS number is required as part of the CCR registration process.

The next step is to register with SAM:

  • Choose Individual account
  •  Provide the requested information and submit
  •  Receive the email from “notifications” and click through the sam.gov link to validate your Account
  • Log in at https://sam.gov with the username and password you created

SAM will send notifications to the registered user via email 60, 30, and 15 days prior to expiration of the Entity. To update or renew your Entity records(s) in SAM you will need to create a SAM User Account.

A Full Users Guide as well as Quick Users Guides are available at www.sam.gov  which you may want to review prior to registering with SAM. 

NOTE:  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DUNS # OR HAVE NOT REGISTERED WITH SAM, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT APPLICATION. PLEASE BEGIN THIS PROCESS IN ADVANCE.
