Add a Vendor


A vendor may be categorized as a Supplier, Independent Contractor, Refund/Reimbursement for Non-Employees, or Attorney. Each vendor type requires specific information and documentation for a code to be established in NU Financials. Please note that certain requests may require additional documentation or verification in addition to what is listed below, where appropriate.

Vendors may be prevented from doing business with NU when evidence of improper conduct exists. This includes, but is not limited to inclusion on Federal “do not use”, suspended, debarred or excluded parties lists, fraud, collusion, attempts to improperly influence a bid, indictment of the bidder/contractor, or previous performance issues. Procurement and Payment Services will ultimately be responsible for final determination/approvals.
