In addition to the above forms, Vendors are asked to enroll in NJSTART, the State of New Jersey’s new eProcurement portal!
This solution is designed to streamline the procurement process and make it more efficient for companies looking to do business with the State, especially when the purchase amount is $17,500 or above. NJ State Agencies are required to adhere to specific purchasing rules and public laws when the amount spent with any given vendor reaches that amount. The $17,500 threshold applies to single purchases, leases, rental agreements, etc. It applies to the total amount spent with each vendor in any given fiscal year.
By enrolling in NJSTART, Rowan can easily see what certifications your company may or may not have, thus accelerating the purchasing process by gathering necessary paperwork early on. This will also facilitate doing business with ANY NJ State Agency, not just Rowan University!
Please ENROLL now. Registration is easy and takes only a few minutes.
Suppliers can also create their own vendor profiles through the portal, eliminating the need to file duplicate forms every time they submit a proposal for a new contract. Also, NJSTART’s business interface allows for the submission of electronic W-9s for the first time, and it expands the quantity of electronic payments enabling prompt payment.
