Registering Vendors

In order to issue a purchase order through NC E-Procurement, vendors must be registered with the NC E-Procurement Service.
Vendors must register on the Statewide Vendor Registration website located at Please ensure that this link is the one being distributed to vendors. A guide to help vendors register may be found at
Additionally, vendors are not able to register over the phone. If a vendor is unable to register online, they may call the NC E-Procurement Help Desk at 888-211-7440, option 2, to request that a paper-based registration form be faxed or mailed to them. Once the signed form is sent back to the NC E-Procurement Help Desk, the registration will be processed within 2 business days.
Vendors are responsible for making sure that all information on their account is accurate. The email address, fax number and phone number are the only fields on an existing Vendor Registration account that can be updated over the phone. All other fields must be updated by logging into the account and updating the information online.
Note: The Department of Administration’s Division of Purchase & Contract’s Interactive Purchasing System (IPS) is a separate system from NC E-Procurement, and vendors registering on that web site are NOT registering with NC E-Procurement.
Note: The HUB Office certifies minorities, women, persons with disabilities, socially and economically disadvantaged individuals, and disabled business enterprises as historically underutilized business firms for North Carolina State Government via IPS. HUB vendors will need to register separately for NC E-Procurement.
