Bidder and Supplier Registration Information
The University of Missouri utilizes an automated procurement system. All Bidders and Suppliers must be registered in this system in order to do business with the University. Bidders and Suppliers are registered along with the Commodities and/or Services they can provide. This information is useful in developing and maintaining current and accurate bid lists.
To help accomplish this task, we request that you complete our on-line Bidder and Supplier Registration Application. Instructions for completing the Bidder and Supplier Registration Application are included within the Form. There are two links provided below. One is for Minority and Women Business Enterprises (MBE/WBE). Non-MBE/WBE vendors should register using the second link. Once the registration is complete, confirmation message and login information is returned which can be used in the future to update information about your business.
Completion of the application does not constitute a guarantee on the part of the University to solicit bids for selected commodities. Bid list selection is at the discretion of the University Procurement Services buying staff. Vendors are encouraged to regularly review University Bids on the left menu of this site for open bid opportunities.
Vendor Reporting for the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act
The University is a recipient of funds received by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Some of these funds will be used for payment of goods and/or services to vendors. If possible, vendors will be notified before a purchase is made that ARRA funds are being used to purchase goods or services, however, such notification may not be possible until after the purchase is complete. Any vendors receiving payments using ARRA funding are responsible for 1512 reporting obligations mandated by the Federal Government.
The information contained here is not designed or intended to be a comprehensive list of the obligations and responsibilities under the ARRA. It is imperative that each vendor be familiar with Section 1512 of ARRA and the guidance material available at http://www.recovery.gov/?q=content/recipient-reporting.
For any individual vendor payments of $25,000 or more, the University will request information on jobs created and/or retained from the vendor. This will be requested on a quarterly basis and include both a number of jobs created/retained and a brief description.
Jobs or positions created means those new positions created and filled, or previously existing unfilled positions that are filled, as a result of ARRA funding.
Jobs or positions retained means those previously existing filled positions that are retained under ARRA funding.
The description may rely on job titles, broader labor categories, or the contractor's existing practice for describing jobs as long as the terms used are widely understood and describe the general nature of the work. A job cannot be reported as both created and retained.
Registration Form for MBE/WBE suppliers, consultants and contractors:
A minority or women business is defined as an organization in which 51% of the ownership interest, stock or otherwise, is owned by minority or women group members. The determination of minority or women status depends solely on ownership and operation and is not related to employment of minority persons or women.
(Note: Certificates are required for MBE/WBE suppliers, consultants and contractors. Please have the certificates available in electronic format before beginning your registration.)
