Vendor Number Request Form

W-9 Information:

The W-9 Form “Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification” is now required before a new vendor number will be issued by the MN State Vendor File Unit. Please collect the W-9 form from the vendor and fax it to (651) 797-1306 or email to vendor.mmbefax@state.mn.us. A new vendor number WILL NOT be approved by the Vendor File Unit until this form has been received in their office. The W-9 Form or Substitute W-9 form is in addition to requesting a new vendor number. You will still need to request new vendor numbers using the Vendor Number Request Form. If the vendor number is already in the vendor file system you do not need to fax or email anything to the state.

Non-Minnesota Business & Individual People with SSN #'s

When you have completed the form, click on the "submit" button at the bottom of the screen. Your request will be e-mailed to Minnesota State Mankato Business Services, Purchasing. This will enable the request to be processed quickly.

If you have questions about the vendor information required, you can contact Cheryl at 389-5017.
