Doing Business with The University of Mississippi

The University of Mississippi would like to set you or your company up as an approved vendor in our University system to enable us to issue purchase orders and make payments. If you anticipate receiving a payment for goods or services from the University, please fill out the required forms below. The W9 form and the Procurement and Accounts Payable information form (which includes a request for Minority Indicator Information and Bank Information for setting up a direct deposit) can be viewed/downloaded at the links below. It is important that you take the time complete this information in as much detail as possible for us to have an accurate business record.

If you wish to make us aware of goods and services provided by your company, it will be necessary to fill out and return the Commodity listing form with marks beside those categories relevant to your business.

Please take time to completely fill out the requested forms so that we may better serve you. Because your inquiry is important to us, you may call the Procurement Services Department at (662)915-7448 and ask for someone to assist you if needed. Our Staff is more than willing to help you through the process of becoming a vendor by answering questions or providing technical assistance you may need. Thank you for your interest in Ole Miss.
