Vendor Relations

Vendor payment begins with a vendor set-up process in FIS. The State of Kansas requires KSU as an agency of the State to obtain and maintain a database of current IRS Form W-9's in order to ensure proper tax reporting and to ensure accurate vendor records within the State's financial system. Because the State's vendor relations begin with you, we must ask that you provide the appropriate vendor forms to us when establishing a new vendor within our system.

 

 

 

          Kansas State University is committed to supplier diversity and our Division would like to encourage
          you to use State certified small and diverse suppliers. If you know of a supplier who may qualify,
          please encourage them to consider registering with the Kansas Department of Commerce.

 

          The Division of Financial Services can help explain how to establish a U.S. federally recognized vendor
          identification number for our international partners. Please see the FAQ site under Payments to Foreign
          Nationals noted under the Accounts Payable Section in the left hand menu.
