Campus Launch and Training Sessions

Campus Launch: September 28

Starting September 28, departments will be able to initiate supplier invites through the new and enhanced Supplier Center. The Supplier Information Manual for Campus is available to guide you through the supplier onboarding process. 

Please note: The Supplier Center will be unavailable for new requests from September 22-27. All pending requests in the queue will continue to be processed.

Connected Vendors 

Since July 16, the Supplier Onboarding Team has initiated invites to 1,120 select suppliers during soft launch of the platform. Of those suppliers, 430 have been connected (onboarded) and another 150 are pending approval. 

Reminder: If suppliers contact you to verify the legitimacy of the email invite, please reassure them that this is NC State’s new supplier onboarding process and direct them to the Supplier Information Manual for Vendors
