NOTICE:  Important Information on Employee Reimbursements

Proposing Vendors

When proposing a vendor in BASIS, please enter a TIN (Tax Identification Number issued by the IRS) or a SSN (Social Security Number). It is very important to have this information with the new IRS requirements. Proposing vendors without a TIN/SSN will slow down the process of creating requisitions and paying invoices in UPS.

Also, a TIN/SSN is required for the vendor to be loaded to RazorBuy and if we do not have the information, the vendor will NOT be in RazorBuy. If the proposed vendor is for a refund, enter that in the comments field. Please enter a fax number, phone number and a contact name in case we need to contact the vendor for additional information.
