Supplier Onboarding

New Supplier

Starting July of 2021, NC State has established a new no cost supplier onboarding process. While in previous years, university departments would collect sensitive supplier information, which was used to create and update supplier accounts into the Financial System, this process presented a security risk, both to the supplier and to the university. After thorough research, NC State has decided to partner with PaymentWorks, a third-party onboarding platform that eliminates the risk of business payments fraud, reduces cost, and ensures regulatory compliance by automating the complex payee management process.

Suppliers who wish to do business with NC State, must register as a payee in PaymentWorks, the university’s supplier onboarding and information management platform. NC State departments send suppliers an invitation through the PaymentWorks system, which will trigger an email notification to the supplier, inviting them to register as a new NC State payee.  

If you wish to become an NC State supplier, please request a supplier invite from the department to whom you will be providing goods or services. 

Starting July 13, 2021, the Supplier Onboarding Team will initiate invites during soft-launch of the platform, to select suppliers. Once the platform is launched campus-wide in early to mid August, departments will be able to initiate these invites. Stay tuned for more information.

Existing Supplier

NC State suppliers who are registered as a PaymentWorks payee can perform the following tasks directly:

  • Update Payment Preference
  • Update Banking Information
  • Add a New Remittance Address
  • Change a Company Name or DBA
  • Change a Corporate Address
  • Research Invoice Status

Step-by-step instructions on how to perform these tasks can be found in the Supplier Information Manual for Vendors, Chapter 7: PaymentWorks How-Tos.
