Subject: CCR is Going Away - What to Expect (UPDATE)
At the end of July 2012, the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) system is going away. CCR, along with Federal Agency Registration (FedReg), the Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA), and the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS), will be migrated into the new System for Award Management, or SAM.
For those of you familiar with this effort, you know it will reduce the number of passwords you need to remember, reduce the number of systems you need to enter and interact with, and reduce data redundancy by sharing the data across the award lifecycle. To help you better understand how this will work, SAM training will be available online in early May. Please visit SAM.gov for more information.
Please see the CCR Web site. for information that will guide you in the transition of the CCR system to SAM and provide answers to what this means for you. If you have questions and concerns, please contact your IHS Division of Grants Management Office at (301) 443-5204.
