my company is a nonprofit organization and working on US govt contract. I want to use upwork to get some of the project work done but my company is hesitating to use upwork as trustworthy for govt task. They can not find your registration at SAM.GOV also website provides very little information on who are you? Do you have any clients from US govt? can you provide something which verifies that you are a certified vendor for US govt jobs?

Hi Pawan, thanks for posting your question in the Community!


We can advise that Upwork is a publicly-traded company and you can find more information about our company with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

An organization would only have a SAM registration if they take government contracts, and I don't believe Upwork is in that business. You aren't hiring Upwork to subcontract to; you are hiring a freelancer and using Upwork as a payment vehicle. However, government contracts usually have strict rules about subcontracting, and I suggest you look at your contract again.
