A new accounting and procurement system, called Statewide Integrated Financial Tools (SWIFT), was implemented by the state of Minnesota on July 1, 2011. Vendors will interact with the state through the new Supplier portal, which is part of SWIFT. The Supplier portal consolidates the state’s vendor registration function and provides vendors with new options. Review the Vendor Resources in the right menu before you begin the registration process.
Every company and organization doing business with the state is considered a vendor. In order to receive or view payments or invoices, every vendor, whether current, new or prospective, will need to register online with the state of Minnesota. Vendors can also update contact and address information in the Supplier portal. To register in the new Supplier portal every vendor needs a vendor ID number.
