Getting Started

Someone from the Federal Reserve Bank in St. Louis (FRB) will contact an appropriate person in your agency to start the process of setting up your agency for SAM.

Sending the data to get you started

As the first step, the FRB will ask you to complete the appropriate forms and e-mail them to the FRB at the address on the bottom of the forms.

To understand the different roles that people have in working with SAM, see the page on Agency User Roles.

Working with the FRB to set up your agency

When the FRB has verified the information on your forms, they will work with your agency's primary contact person to set up your agency in SAM.

To understand that process, read the SAM Setup Overview.

Onboarding with CAIA

As part of the Common Approach to Identity Assurance (CAIA), SAM will be adopting multi-factor authentication in Q3 2023 (CY).
