To effectively do business with Cornell, suppliers should complete and submit a Supplier Information form and an IRS W-9 form. These forms are necessary to ensure the following:
IRS Form W-9
According to IRS regulations, Cornell University must obtain your correct taxpayer identification number to report income paid to you. Please fax this completed form to the Office for Supply Management Services at 607-255-9450.
Supplier Information Form
Suppliers must complete this form to provide information that the university uses to support internal reporting requirements, as well as those of external agencies, and to help ensure that transactions are performed accurately. This form can be completed and submitted online.
SMS Supplier Administration Access (restricted access)
ACH enrollment allows Cornell to securely and economically pay vendors and other payees through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system (i.e., direct deposit). For vendors, this service is an efficient alternative to receiving paper check payments.
