New Supplier & Individual Payee Registration Process:
Brown University is now using a Registration Process in place of the IRS Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification form W-9. This form needs to be filled out by new suppliers and individual payees (who are not employed by the University). The process allows us to collect additional information and was created to support the University’s reporting and compliance requirements.
This registration is intended for suppliers who are engaged to provide goods or services to Brown. If you are a new supplier not presently engaged in business with Brown but are interested in providing goods or services to the University, please contact the Purchasing Department at 401-863-2206 prior to submitting the registration.
