General Information

The purpose of the Master Vendor Form is to accurately develop and maintain Saint Louis University vendor information. This procedure is intended to promote uniformity and to ensure new vendor requests are processed in a timely manner. The information for vendors must be received and entered into the Banner system before a requisition can be issued.


The requestor is responsible for completing the Master Vendor Form and forwarding to the Purchasing Department for approval via e-mail, fax or inter-office mail. Purchasing is responsible for validating that the vendor addition requests and/or changes are substantiated. A Sole Source Justification Form may be needed if a comparable vendor is already in the system.

After approval, Purchasing will forward the form to the A/P Administrator (Central Processing Center) for set-up which will be completed within 24 hours of receipt.  The A/P Administrator does have the authority to question data on the form, or reject it if proper information is not provided.
