Use this form to request the setup of a new vendor that has not previously done business with or been paid by Columbia University. To check if a vendor is already in our system, please visit the ARC Vendor ID Lookup. Note: The vendor may not, under any circumstance, perform any services or provide any goods before they have been approved through this vendor setup process.
All vendors, without exception, are required to complete Vendor Management set-up as soon as possible via PaymentWorks to become a Columbia University supplier. Vendors must elect payment issue type. Note: A check will be sent if the vendor does not sign up for a direct deposit.
Administration and Planning will keep the requestor and vendor updated throughout the submission and setup process.
