Before making a request

main content

Before making a request to have a new supplier set up you should check the following:

Can I use a Departmental Purchasing Card?

Purchase Cards

Is there an existing Framework in place?

Contracts Register 


 Do I need a single source justification?

Procurement Toolkit/SSJ Guidance

Do I need to run a tender via Procurement?

Procurement Contacts


If none of the above options apply and you still need to place your order on FMS, you should follow the process to add a new supplier to the system.

Full instructions on how to add a new supplier to FMS can be found on the FMS development and training site – link below
