Supplier Business Profile & W-9 Forms

There are two different forms that are required to set up a vendor in the Banner system; the Supplier Business Profile and W-9 Form. The Supplier Business Profile captures the address where the Purchase Order (PO) will be sent and the “remit to” address for the check. Since Valencia’s POs are faxed to the companies, we need to have the correct fax number where the POs should be directed. The profile also captures ethnicity of the business. This is required since for the yearly report to the State of Florida and quarterly reports to the Board of Trustees. Any updated changes should be completed on a new Supplier Business Profile and forwarded to the procurement office.

W-9 Forms are an IRS requirement. This is how the company reports to the IRS and includes their Federal Identification Number unique to their company. When creating a requisition in Banner, the preparer should use the correct BU Address type as to where the PO is to be sent. Check the Fax number in the system against the quote or proposal that you are using from the vendor.

Both forms can be found on the procurement website. Searching a vendor in Banner can be done by using the FOAIDEN form. Instructions on how to “Look up Vendors” is in Tab 4 of your Banner Manual. It can also be found in Atlas under the Finance tab, Purchasing Module Manual.
