Supplier Management/Miscellaneous Payments

The Supplier Registration process is managed by the Controller's Office.

Brown University uses a Registration Form 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.   

Supplier and Individual Payees are required to register following the instructions and form below.

Announcement 8/29/2023: Over the past several months, the Controller’s Office and the Workday Program@Brown have collaborated to streamline the process for payments based on departmental feedback. In support of that effort, the miscellaneous payments process will be deployed beginning September 18 to support departments in processing payments to individuals for honoraria/guest speaker payments, visitor travel reimbursements, and more.
