Payment Works Onboarding

Become a Supplier

Potential new suppliers will be considered by PSO based on the needs of RIT along with strategies for the respective categories that PSO supports to ensure best value is delivered to the University.

New Supplier Applications will be reviewed by PSO. Please note that completing a New Supplier Application does not guarantee that your business will be selected to provide goods and/or services to the university or to receive preferred supplier status. PSO reserves the right to decline an application or to place the application aside until a business opportunity arises.

Payment Works

RIT has partnered with PaymentWorks to provide a secure supplier onboarding portal. RIT joins many other higher education institutions that have also implemented PaymentWorks to automate the vendor management processes, protect against business payment fraud, and ensure regulatory compliance. The use of the portal is free of cost to our suppliers and will provide a secure method for providing new or updated information, and will give additional visibility into the payment process.

This link will take you to some helpful tip sheets to support successful registration, use and maintainance of your RIT PaymentWorks account and below you will find RIT's list of valid Commodity Categories and Subcategories, which are required fields on the New Vendor Registration (NVR) form.
