Interested in doing business with us?



  1. Begin by filling out the Supplier Interest Form.

  2. Wait for a confirmation of submission.

  3. If an opportunity arises and you are a qualified supplier, a member of the Supply Chain Services Team will reach out to you for additional information.

  4. If your items and/or services directly impact patient care, you will go through a Value Analysis period. If passed, the Supplier Onboarding Process will begin.

  5. Qualified vendors that pass the screening phase will receive a New Vendor Packet.*

  6. If the Supplier Onboarding Process is successful, a contract or agreement will be extended.

*The New Vendor Packet consists of the following paperwork: a W-9 (or W8BEN if a foreign-based company), a Vendor Qualification Form, a Compliance Policies Acknowledgement, either a Master Services Agreement or a Master Consultant Agreement, an Acknowledgement of General Terms and Conditions, a Tobacco-Free and Fire Procedure Acknowledgement, a Conflict of Interest Form, and a Business Associates Agreement (BAA) Determination Form / HIPAA Business Associate Questionnaire.
† If no opportunities are present, all qualifying vendors will be added to our Vendor Database and contacted if an opportunity arises.
‡ For Diverse Suppliers who may not have qualified under the regular onboarding process, Community Affairs will contact you for further assistance and refer you to a mentorship program if needed.
