Notice for Vendors Registering in the Vendor Application: If a vendor has a new SAM record that is "In Progress" or "Submitted," then it is still being processed by SAM and is not available for other applications, yet, i.e. VIPR. When registering in the vendor application, the vendor will get a "DUNS not found in SAM" error message, but will still be able to proceed with the vendor registration. However, a vendor's SAM record MUST have an "Active" status before the vendor will be considered eligible to receive an award. For more information, see the Overview for Using the Vendor App.

Notice for all vendors: Please ensure that you have identified as a trusted source for receiving emails. We have seen instances where some email servers reject these emails as "spoofing" and/or a sign of "phishing" or "scamming."

The VIPR application is available for vendors to use when responding to solicitations or modifications for all resources. VIPR is now interconnected with the System for Award Management (SAM), which means vendors who use VIPR MUST have active SAM accounts. Also, VIPR vendors MUST ensure their vendor company name, company DBA, company address and mailing address in VIPR match the information that is in their SAM records.
