NOTE: If user is searching for a vendor for PCard approval, and the vendor has been terminated, user will have to enter the vendor on the internal PCard Vendor Registration page. If user is searching for a vendor for Requisition, Direct Pay, etc., user will have to contact that terminated vendor and instruct them to go to Procurement's external web site (Vendor Registration Page) and perform an update.

  • If you do NOT find the vendor you are searching for, it will be indicated in the message area at the bottom left of the screen. The message that will appear is "FRM-40301: Query caused no record to be retrieved. Reenter."
  • Click Rollback and repeat steps above with new search criteria. Search at least three times with variations of the vendor's name.

To search by "TIN" (Tax Identification Number) or "SSN" (Social Security Number):

  • Tab to ID Number field
  • Type the vendor's TIN/SSN without % signs in the ID Number field.
  • Click Execute Query, or press F8 key on the keyboard.

If after an exhautive search, you do not find the vendor in Banner:

  • New vendors must be added to Banner BEFORE a Requisition can be keyed into Banner OR a PCard charge can be approved.
  • Terminated vendors must be instructed to enter an update, before they can have the termination date removed and become active again BEFORE a Requisition can be keyed into Banner.
  • PO Vendors: Refer the vendor to Procurement's External Vendor Registration Web Page. All PO Vendors must register or update themselves at the Vendor On-Line Registration page prior to the submittal of the Banner Requisition.
  • PCard Vendors: Internal departments enter the vendor at the internal PCard Vendor Registration Page.
    • Do NOT enter the PCard vendor until the auto-email indicating the charge has posted and you have 14 days within which to approve the charge has been received.
    • The PCard Vendor's Tax ID number is NOT required for entry.
