The Supplier registration form

Marketplace has a highly secure and vetted Supplier Addition process, to protect both the University and the Supplier from risk and to mitigate errors in the order and payment processing by having the most current information on file.

The supplier form:

  • is online, secure and encrypts sensitive and private information
  • includes the equivalent of W9 information, but asks for more than just the W9
  • confirms Remit-To and Payment information, offering the option for paper-free payments
  • protects the University and the Supplier by requesting the most up-to-date, accurate information
