Vendor Registration

The State of Minnesota has implemented a new financial and procurement system that will affect how vendors interact with the State. The Statewide Integrated Financial Tools (SWIFT) system provides new options for vendors and requires current vendors to create a new user ID and password. The previous vendor registration system has been decommissioned. Vendors are now able to register and update their information through the eSupplier portal.

The new vendor portal (eSupplier portal) consolidates the vendor registration function previously processed through the Office of Business Services – Purchasing.

Any new vendors the University wishes to do business with should be directed to the following link in order to register and get their State of MN SWIFT vendor number: http://supplier.swift.state.mn.us.

Benefits

Vendors will be able to view certain solicitation announcements through the eSupplier portal. An added benefit is the ability to respond to certain State of Minnesota solicitations in an online bidding process.

Additional self-service functions will enable vendors to request changes to their addresses and contact information. Vendors can also navigate to other State of Minnesota websites from the eSupplier portal.

Electronic Funds Transfer

Beginning July 1, 2011, new vendors can sign up for direct deposit payment when they self-register through the eSupplier portal. Vendors requesting changes to bank information or wishing to sign up for Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) will do so through the MMB website,

Vendors receiving electronic payments will be able to view them through the eSupplier portal as well after July 1, 2011.
