How can I add a new Supplier?


The supplier address book found in UWinsite Finance Self-Service Procurement module, contains the records of all the contractors, vendors, and others who conduct business with the University.   

Before a requisition can be issued, or an invoice can be paid, the supplier must be added to the address book, if their supplier record is not found. The Supplier banking information is obtained through the Procurement Office’s Supplier Self-Serve Portal.  

From the UWinsite Finance’s Self-Service Procurement module, all staff members with UWinsite Finance access can search for suppliers, by name, to identify whether a supplier is in already in the address book. 

If you identify a supplier that is not in the address book and wish to do business with the supplier, please follow the instructions below. (Updated on February 1, 2022 to reflect the new Self-Service Supplier portal.

  • A University staff member submits a UWinsite Finance ticket to request the addition of a supplier
