New Vendor Setup
New Vendor Setup - The district's financial system, Visions, has a limited number of vendors we can maintain in our vendor files. In an effort to only add vendors that will potentially receive a purchase order, the open form available to all vendors on the Audit Services website will be removed and vendors will not be able to submit their own information. Vendors will now be responsible for contacting the Purchasing Department directly, so that we can obtain the necessary IRS W9 form and all other pertinent information for new vendors.
Vendors must be set up in Visions before a purchase order can be issued. If you have a new
vendor you want to work with please contact the buyer team who will process your requisition so
they can contact the vendor and request a W- 9. If you need assistance in finding the correct
buyer team please see the commodity listing on the purchasing website. The district must
have a signed and dated W-9 on file before Purchasing adds them to Visions.
MPS Employees - You may not do business with the District unless the purchase is made through
competitive bidding. See GB Policy GBCA (page 283) for more information. Please click here for clarifications from MPS Legal Department.
Please feel free to contact any of the buyer teams if you are interested in becoming a vendor for
Mesa Public Schools. Buyer Teams are located at three different facility sites. Our department is
staffed from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday excluding school holidays and summer
To find the buyer who manages the products which you sell, please see our buyer's commodities list and contact the buyer directly. Before being issued a purchase order each vendor is required to supply a signed and dated W-9.
All commitments of purchases by MPS will be made by an approved Purchase Order number assigned by the Purchasing Department. Products/services are not to be delivered without an approved Purchase Order. Vendors accepting orders without a purchase order number do so at their own risk.
