Finding a Supplier:
Kansas State University is committed to supplier diversity and our Division would like to
encourage you to review the information at the following link for State certified small
Determining whether your relationship with a service provider should be classified as an
independent contractor or an employee is an important exercise that must occur before
services are performed in order to ensure proper tax withholding and reporting. Please
check out the above link for additional information when considering whether you are
establishing an employment or independent contractor relationship.
As Kansas State University grows internationally we have new opportunities to work with
parties oversees and with foreign nationals who perform services for the university in the
United States. Due to increased federal reporting responsibilities in this area, it is extremely
important that information concerning the payee is gathered early. The Division of Financial
Services can help explain accounts payable procedures with international partners, and has
provided guidance and an FAQ site under Payments to Foreign Nationals noted under the
Accounts Payable Section in the left hand menu.
