Before selecting a vendor for a university purchase, you need to be familiar with the list of vendors that the State has determined cannot be utilized for State purchases.
From the Department of Administration Procurement Manual:
"Regardless of dollar amount, the agency will not enter into any contract or order for the purchase of materials, supplies, equipment or contractual services with vendors or their affiliates who are not registered, collecting and remitting Wisconsin sales or use tax on sales of tangible personal property or taxable services in Wisconsin."
"The Department of Revenue (DOR) is responsible for verifying that vendors and their affiliates are in compliance with the tax law. DOR will certify a list of vendors that are not in compliance to the Department of Administration. These ineligible vendors will be listed in the Certification for Collection of Sales and Use Tax Vendor Directory. Before doing business with a vendor, the agency will ensure that the vendor's taxpayer identification number (TIN) does not appear in this directory."
The campus will not make payments to the vendors appearing on this list, and staff of the university cannot make purchases on the university procurement cards with these vendors. Additionally, any purchase that will be reimbursed with university funds cannot utilize these vendors.
