The General Service Administration (GSA) takes measures to defend our healthcare system and government entities from fraudulent handling, including maintaining several databases of parties that are excluded from federal procurement.

The GSA’s System for Award Management (SAM) consolidates all of these exclusion databases to make them easily searchable. The databases include:

  • The Central Contractor Registry (CCR)
  • The Federal Agency Registration (FedReg)
  • The Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA)
  • The Excluded Parties List System (EPLS)

A SAM exclusion search incorporates all of these.
