  1. To create a vendor number for an individual, we require a signed and dated IRS W9 Form or a contract that includes name, address, social security number, signature and date.  All form must be completed by the vendor/payee.

  2. If a vendor wants to set up banking with the university, then the Direct Deposit Banking Form can be used in lieu of the W9 or contract. Please ensure to include a voided check or bank verification letter.  Any changes to an existing vendor account/information, such as change of last name, address or bank account  requires a new direct deposit form to be completed. Remember to reference the old account information on the form.  Please ensure a voided check or bank verification letter is included with the new banking information.

  3. Forward the signed Direct Deposit authorization form with voided check (if applicable) to:
    UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI
    ACCOUNTS PAYABLE
    PO BOX 210333
    CINCINNATI, OH 45221-0333


    If you have any questions, call Accounts Payable Department at (513) 556-6772 (Company) or (513) 556-6746 (Individual).

  4. For security and IRS auditing purposes an email message, invoice or a simple typed up word document are not acceptable forms for setting up your vendor information with the university.
