Update Your Profile

It is your responsibility as a contract instructor to keep your System for Award Management (SAM) registration current and to notify us of any changes to your contact or banking/direct deposit information.

The National Fire Academy has the right to refuse your bid and go to the next bidder to issue an award if your registration in SAM is not current.

If your address changes

  1. Notify of any changes to your physical or email address.
  2. Update your SAM registration.
  3. Update your contact information through the Instructor Dashboard (select the “My Profile” tab).

It is critical that you keep your contact information up-to-date so that you can receive all information pertaining to open/special bidding periods, as well as NFA policy and informational updates.

If you don't want your contact information published under the Eligible Instructors page, be sure to check “Please do not publish my contact information” under Privacy at the bottom of the page.

If your banking information changes

  1. Call the FEMA Finance Center in Winchester, Virginia at 540-504-1899 with the new information to avoid payment delay.
  2. Update your SAM registration.
  3. Annotate your invoice to indicate your banking information has changed. If submitting an electronic invoice, include a note in the “Additional Details Block.”
