What is the VMU?
The Office of the State Comptroller’s Bureau of State Expenditures created the Vendor Management Unit (VMU) to manage the Vendor File. The VMU is responsible for the daily operations, maintenance and audit of all vendor records. The New York State Business Units are responsible for collecting and submitting vendor data to the VMU for vendor registration. The VMU will issue the vendor a New York State Vendor ID when review of the data is completed.
