Electronic Authentication Steps for Accessing EvaluationWeb

All persons requesting access to EvaluationWeb must be identity proofed via the SAMS system (; 1-877-681-2901). Once identity proofing is complete, Luther Consulting will provide instructions for accessing EvaluationWeb. Below are the steps to become identity proofed.

Step 1:

Contact your state or local EvaluationWeb Administrator to request access. If approved, the state or local EvaluationWeb Administrator will contact CDC ( to begin your registration as a potential EvaluationWeb user.

Step 2:

You will receive an e-mail invitation from "Sams-No-Reply (CDC)." This e-mail includes a link to the SAMS portal. SAMS is CDC's secure website where public health partners can access sensitive information and applications, such as EvaluationWeb, that are not available to the public. The e-mail will also have your SAMS user ID and a temporary password.

Step 3:

Log into SAMS using the website link, user ID, and temporary password included in your welcome e-mail and complete the registration. The password you set during the registration process will be your password for accessing SAMS in the future.

Step 4:

After registration you will receive another e-mail from "Sams-No-Reply (CDC)." Print this e-mail, which contains the identity verification request form at the bottom, and present it with a government-issued identity document to a Proofing Agent (i.e., notary public, Designated Proofing Authority (DPA) or a badged CDC employee).

  • Acceptable identity documents include government-issued photo ID cards that have an ID number (i.e., state-issued driver's license, military ID, or passport)
  • The Proofing Agent will verify your identity document and complete their portion of the printed e-mail. Specific instructions on verifying the identity document and completing the form are on the e-mail form.

Step 5:

Fax or mail the printed e-mail form, along with a copy of the identity document(s), to:

  • Toll-free fax number:
  • Mail:
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
    Attn: Proofing Authority
    1600 Clifton Road, N.E.
    Mailstop K-94
    Atlanta, GA 30333

Step 6:

You will receive approval by e-mail and U.S. Postal Service at your provided address. Once approved, you will receive EvaluationWeb login instructions from Luther Consulting.
