Sponsor Requests for Vendor Set-up of UCSD

Sponsor Requests for Vendor Set-up of UCSD

Find information on completing vendor forms and setting up UCSD in a sponsor's system. Sponsors often require that UCSD be set up as new “vendor” in their systems in order to transmit payments/funds to the UCSD project. This step includes the completion of a “Vendor Set-up Form”. Departments should complete these forms, either in the requested file format or directly in the sponsor’s procurement system, and return to the sponsor. Following are guidelines for departments to complete this form for sponsored research awards.
