      How does a vendor register as a new vendor in FMS?

      Please have the vendor visit the District’s website,, and ask them to click on the word "Portal", which is the last word in the first paragraph. They will be guided to answer questions 1 - 6 and they must complete and attach a scanned signed and dated W-9 only. Purchasing will receive an email when they complete the process. Upon review of the application, it will either be approved or the supplier will be asked for more information if needed. If purchasing approves the application it is sent through for the second approval round. The supplier will then be set up as an active vendor in FMS. Please have the supplier use the two links provided below to get the process started. Allow up to three days for an FMS supplier number.
