As a supplier, you will access FedMall primarily via the Supplier Portal — a dedicated website where you will register, manage your catalog items, and view purchase orders.
Before you begin - be sure that you have each of the following:
- A valid authentication certificate, such as a CAC card, PIV card, or a soft certificate available to your web browser
- A valid CAGE code
- An active SAM registration
- The contract number and related contract information
Find more on the most appropriate authentication option for you:
- Common Access Card (CAC): a credit card-sized smart card issued by the DoD to uniformed service personnel, DoD civilian employees, and eligible contractors. Learn more about getting a CAC.
- Personal Identify Verification (PIV) card: a credit card-sized smart card issued by the U.S. federal government in accordance with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) requirements for a common identification standard for all federal employees and contractors. Learn more about getting a PIV.
- Soft Certificate: DLA uses a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificate as a soft certificate. As an alternative to the physical smart card, you may also obtain a software-based X.509 certificate, which you import a file into your browser’s personal certificate store. Learn more about getting a Soft Certificate/PKI.
- Visit the Supplier Portal
- Click the “Enter Supplier Portal” button.
- Read and accept the standard notice and consent.
- Select your certificate and enter your pin, if prompted.
- If this is your first time accessing the Supplier Portal, you will be prompted to register. Click the “Register” button to begin.
- Enter your CAGE code and click the “Search” button. Your CAGE code is a combination of five letters and numbers, and is listed in your SAM.gov record. FedMall will search SAM.gov for your registration. If you have a problem, check the following:
- Make sure that you can find your record in SAM.gov; if it’s a new registration, make sure that you have completed all registration steps and received your confirmation email that the record has passed all validations.
- Your SAM.gov registration must be “active”—you must have completed your registration or an update to your registration within the last year.
- You must not have an active exclusion (debarment) against your supplier entity.
- FedMall will display the information from your SAM.gov registration. Verify that it’s accurate, and click “Next” to continue.
- Supply your contact information under “Registrant Contact Information.” (Note: If other individuals will be accessing FedMall on behalf of your organization, they will complete their own information here; this should be your own contact information.)
- You have two options for participating in FedMall:
- If you have an existing Long Term Agreement (LTA) or Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for items or services in a catalog, you can provide it here.
- Alternatively, if you are a supplier of office supplies and have the NAICS code 453210 in your SAM.gov registration, you have the option ofparticipating in the new FedMall MarketPlace. The MarketPlace requires no contract, and lets you quickly get up and running selling commercial office supplies up to the micro-purchase threshold to Government Purchase Card (GPC) holders.
- See below for more information about adding contracts and specifying order routing configuration, especially if you will receive purchase orders via EDI or cXML.
- Once you submit your registration, wait ten minutes for your application to be processed. Then return to the Supplier Portal and you will be able to proceed directly to the registered user home page.
