The General Services Administration (GSA) urged bidders on its new IT Services contract, Polaris, to start working on SAM.gov entity validation as soon as possible, as some offerors are experiencing system delays.

Proposals for the Small Business and Woman-Owned Small Business categories of Polaris are due August 19 and must be submitted to GSA via the Polaris Submission Portal. As a part of this process, all offerors and team members must validate their entity information in SAM.gov.

“Entity validation in SAM.gov can take time,” GSA wrote in an update issued on Friday. “We strongly encourage offerors and team members to start the validation process as soon as possible to avoid issues with submitting Polaris proposals by the due date.”

Polaris offerors and team members must ensure they have submitted all required documentation in SAM.gov. GSA also posted information for bidders to review regarding the referenced FSD Resources on SAM validation issues:
