Melissa Baum, a case manager with US Federal Contractor Registration since April 2015, works closely with our clients, making sure their registrations are current, correct, and updated. Contractors with registrations that are not current, correct, and updated risk missing out on payments for contracts and grants, “because there is a lot of information and questions in the DFAR and FAR clauses that have to be answered correctly, and a lot of people don’t know where to start with the process and can get very frustrated because there is no assistance from the government in terms of registering in the System for Award Management.”
Her advice for new contractors or even contractors who are looking to grow their government business? Use the tools and guidance available to you, such as from your case manager and acquisition specialist, to make sure you know when opportunities are available, how to correctly bid, and how to make sure contracting officers know about you and your business.
Melissa received her Associate’s Degree in Paralegal Studies in December 2013 from Harrison College in Indiana.
“I am always available to my clients and follow-up with them to make sure their questions are answered quickly and efficiently,” Melissa says. “I enjoy helping others and use my legal experience to make sure all legal information is provided and answered correctly.”
Melissa Baum was extremely helpful in completing what I needed to do to renew my SAM registration. She answered all of my questions, and explained things in a manner that was easy to understand. She is awesome, and I hope that I get to continue to work with her in the future.

Case Manager Melissa Baum was a life saver in registering us in the System for Award Management. Our non-profit was required to complete this process for a grant, and I had never heard of SAM before. Melissa answered all of my questions and handled the entire process for me in no time at all, allowing our company to submit the needed paperwork for our grant. I couldn’t be more thrilled to have been assigned this case manager to help me for the next year, and I highly recommend doing business with US Federal Contractor Registration as a result of my positive experience with Melissa!

Ms. Melissa B. helped me obtain my SAM number. She pleasantly walked me through the process. Without her help, I would have been hopelessly lost. If all employees were as easy to work with, life would be much more pleasant.
