Welcome to the University of Rhode Island Vendor Registration system.
Please note that effective January 2, 2014 all URI vendor registrations and/or vendor maintenance is a function of the URI Controller’s Office. Therefore, any questions relating to the registration process or changes to an existing vendor file must be directed to the URI Controller’s Office
Please note that the online registration process must be completed at one time. A complete list of the commodity codes is available for viewing prior to the registration process Commodity Codes. When registering you must choose at least one commodity code, however, if you are unsure of what commodity codes to select in a specific category we suggest that you “select all” in that category. Failure to select the appropriate commodity categories will prevent the University Purchasing Department from including your organization in future bids.
In addition to e-mailing Public Bids and RFP solicitations to registered vendors, The University of Rhode Island Purchasing Department posts all Public Bids on the Rhode Island Vendor Information Program (RIVIP) located at the State of Rhode Island, Division of Purchases web site:www.purchasing.ri.gov (Bidding Opportunities +, Other RI Opportunities).
Please note that this registration process is separate from the RIVIP system. In order to participate in the State of Rhode Island Division of Purchases bid solicitations you must register on the RIVIP system at www.purchasing.ri.gov.
Thank you for your interest in doing business with the University of Rhode Island.
