When department or project users create a purchase requisition, they usually determine a vendor.† The user should use the Vendor Inquiry to determine if the vendor exists.† If the vendor does not exist, the user should obtain the Federal Tax ID number from the vendor, since that ID number becomes the Vendor ID number when the vendor is created by Accounts Payable.
