I received a call from a company who wanted to tell me that my SAM registration was due for renewal. I asked them what exactly will they do for me. They told me they would update my records and ensure my NAICS codes were correct. I then asked them how much that will cost? They told me for a 1 year renewal it was 299 and more if wanted a 3 or 5 year renewal.
When I asked if I could do that myself without paying anything of course they told me I could but I would not be able to go more than a year at a time….
The moral of this story reflects what I posted earlier. Don’t pay for something that only requires your time since in order for anyone to update SAM they need the information from you anyway.
Like my first Commander used to tell me when I did not complete an assignment.
Commander: Did you Sleep last night LT?
Me: Yes Sir.
Commander: Then you had time.
