Please check back often to get the latest information.

- April 15, 2012 - Statewide Financial System Go-Live - The Statewide Financial System will begin full scale operations. The Vendor File information will be used in the processing of vendor payment transactions. All vendors registered for Vendor Self Service will be able to view status information for invoices processed after April 1, 2012.
In January 2011, the Statewide Financial System (SFS) went live with the New York State Centralized Vendor File. The Vendor File is the new centrally managed database of State vendors that eliminates duplicate records, increases efficiency and improves reporting on State vendor activities.
As part of the SFS implementation, the New York State Vendor Self Service (eSupplier) went live in the Spring of 2011. Upon registration in the Vendor File, vendors are provided credentials to access New York State Vendor Information through eSupplier, the Vendor Self Service portal. Here, vendors are able to maintain their addresses and contact information. After the Statewide Financial System Go-Live, vendors will be able to access information about their purchase orders, invoices and payments.
