Vendoring for Alma Payments

Supplier Onboarding Portal

All businesses and non-employee payees need a supplier ID in the Berkeley Financial System in order to receive payment from the Library. As of April 5, 2021, campus has implemented a new online process for setting up vendors. To initiate this process, please send an email to that includes the following information about the vendor:

  • name/business name
  • email address
  • Is the business based in the U.S.?/Is the individual a U.S. citizen or permanent resident?

The vendor will be sent a supplier onboarding invitation via email with a link to securely enter their information directly into the BFS portal.

Updating Vendor Information

Existing vendors that need to update their information in the system should complete a supplier information update form. They can access this form from the Accounts Payable webpage. Once submitted, the forms will route automatically to the Accounts Payable Vendor Desk for processing.
