BioSig Awarded CAGE Code by the Systems for Award Management (SAM)
Company moves forward with the qualification to bid for contracts, grants and to do business with the U.S. government
Westport, CT, Aug. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioSig Technologies, Inc. (BSGM) (“BioSig” or the “Company”), a medical technology company commercializing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to improve signal fidelity and uncover the full range of ECG and intra-cardiac signals, today announced that the Company has been awarded its Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) code by the Systems for Award Management (SAM). The CAGE code is required to do business operations with the federal government.
BioSig, along with its subsidiary ViralClear, are now registered to conduct business with the U.S. government and can be sought out by government agencies for contracts that fit the Company. The CAGE code also includes the ability to apply and be awarded government contracts, assistance and grant programs.
The System for Award Management (SAM) is a federal government owned and operated free website that consolidates the capabilities in Central Contractor Registration (CCR)/FedReg, Online Representations and Certifications Applications (ORCA) and the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS). Both current and potential government vendors are required to register in SAM in order to be awarded contracts by the government. SAM allows government agencies and contractors to search for companies based on ability, size, location, experience, ownership, and more. SAM allows users to search for firms certified by the SBA under the 8(a) Development and Hubzone Programs. SAM validates the vendor's information and electronically shares the secure and encrypted data with the federal agencies' finance offices to facilitate paperless payments through electronic funds transfer (EFT). Additionally, SAM shares the data with government procurement and electronic business systems.
