Supplier Application Form

How is my information used?

Thank you for submitting your company's profile for our consideration. It will be added to a master database of potential suppliers to Vanderbilt University and reviewed within 45 working days by our sourcing staff who will then contact you.

The submission of your profile does not automatically grant you approved supplier status with Vanderbilt University. Purchasing Services uses this database to find potential new suppliers to meet the expressed needs of our higher education, research and patient care customers.

If we are interested in doing business with your company, you will be contacted by the Sourcing Officer who handles your commodity. All small business and diversity-owned companies are also asked to register with the SBA.

Note: Once submitted, data will be searchable for 3 years.
