Paying Vendors and Contractors

A vendor is any entity that provides goods to the University in exchange for payment. Vendors must submit a W-9 to the Controller’s Office, be approved, and set up in the system before payment can be made to them. Contractors are any entity that provides services to the University in exchange for payment. Contractors may not be University employees. For further information on the definition of a contractor please reference the Human Resources Policy Manual (2.2.E). Contractors must submit a W-9 to the Controller’s Office, be approved, and set up in the system before payment can be made to them.
