SWIFT supplier portal guidance
A new accounting and procurement system, called Statewide Integrated Financial Tools (SWIFT), was executed by the state of Minnesota on July 1, 2011. All vendors interact with the state through the new supplier portal, which is part of SWIFT. The supplier portal consolidates the state’s vendor registration function and provides vendors with new options. Every company and organization doing business with the state is considered a vendor. In order to receive or view payments or invoices, every vendor, whether current, new or prospective, will need to register online with the state of Minnesota. The SWIFT number is the vendor number for all state agencies.
To register go to https://supplier.swift.state.mn.us/psp/fmssupap_1/SUPPLIER/ERP/c/PORTAL_COMPONENTS_AU.AUC_LOGIN.GBL. To register as a new vendor simply click on the registration link below the log-in at the top of the page. It take approximately 24 hours for a vendor to receive your SWIFT number. This will be a ten digit number with four leading zeros and six unique numbers (0000_ _ _ _ _ _).
If a vendor is going to bid as a prime contractor on MnDOT work, they subsequently need to contact Nancy Boeve at the Office of Construction and Innovative Contracting, (phone 651-366-4343, fax 651-366-4248, email@example.com, www.dot.state.mn.us/bidlet) to have their company information and SWIFT number entered into the Transport database and vendor table on Bid Express in order to create a digital ID for bidding on state projects.
More information about registering in SWIFT is available at www.mmb.state.mn.us/vendorresources.
