• Program Requirements

Certification — DRI does not use a third party to certify the authenticity of a business. Therefore, all information submitted by a vendor must be accurate and in accordance with fair business practices. If you have been certified as a diversified vendor, please submit a copy of the certificate.

Requirements — DRI requires that a vendor application and W-9 be completed and submitted to the Purchasing/Accounts Payable Department prior to processing any system transactions. Please be sure to login or register at https://suppliers.nevada.edu .

For purchases greater than $5,000.00 and Request For Proposal (RFP) information, please visit Business Center North (BCN) Purchasing at the link below.  BCN Purchasing serves as the Purchasing Agent for the Northern locations of the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE).

Completing the registration does not guarantee that the vendor will be selected for goods and services being purchased by the Institute, nor does it assure invitation to bid on DRI projects.
