Vendor Creation

Why is the "Supplier Diversity Field" required when creating a vendor in UAccess Financials?

The Federal Government requires the University to report on dollars spent with vendors by business type (supplier diversity type). Even if your purchase is not being made with federal funding, future purchases from this vendor might. To ensure compliance, the supplier diversity type will be required when a new vendor is established.

Why can't I attach a W9 to a vendor create (PVEN) document in UAccess Financial?

The IRS W9 form contains sensitive information and if that document is attached in the Notes and Attachments tab of a UAccess Financials document anyone with access to the system can view it. Please do not attach anything containing Social Security Numbers, or sensitive information, to UAccess Financials documents.
