Vendor Management (VM) is a unit within Procurement Services responsible for maintaining the vendor file utilized for Purchasing and Accounts Payable transactions.
Go to About Us to learn more about what we do.
Use the Vendor/Payee Request Web Form for requesting creation and modification of vendor/payee profiles. You can also use this to search for vendors already in the system. However, more indepth search can be conducted in ARC.
Vendor Management receives approximately 250 requests each day to create or modify vendor/payee profiles. Upon receipt of each request, the VM team conducts review and validation procedures and, as necessary, follows up with vendors/payees and requesting departments. Normal processing time in Vendor Management is 3-5 business days.
If you are a vendor and need to obtain information as to the status of a payment of or for viewing the remittance information for a specific check and/or ACH/Wire transfer, please use the AP Payment Status & Remittance Form. For more info, see the How to Follow Up on Payments page.
Vendor Management also creates/modifies profiles for non-vendor payees, including recipients of : Prizes & Awards, Refunds, Honoraria & Grant sub-awards.
