If a payee or vendor has not yet been registered in KFS, use the following procedures to initiate registration according to the type of payee or vendor. To determine how to pay for your good or service, see the Procurement Decision flowchart in Buying Manual, section 200.
Cornell Procurement Services contacts and registers all purchase order vendors.
Registration for these vendors is a manual process. If a foreign vendor is set up in KFS without an IRS Form W-8, IRS regulations may require Cornell to withhold 30% from payments to the vendor/payee. For more information about the required tax forms, see the Tax Forms page on the University Tax Office website.
Refer to Buying Manual section 205, Vendor Setup for procedures.
