OPWC no longer uses a Vendor Approval Form (formerly known as Request to Proceed). To not delay payments, our customers are responsible for ensuring that chosen suppliers (vendors) are in the state payment system before submitting a Disbursement request. Updated monthly, this list shows suppliers that are in the system. If your supplier is not listed, please direct them to the State of Ohio’s Enterprise Identity Management System, OH|ID, to access the Ohio Supplier Portal to create an account. While there, suppliers can also apply for EFT which can reduce processing time by two or three days in that payments are completed electronically to the supplier’s bank account. The Portal is also used to make changes including addresses, name changes, and bank account information for those who currently have EFT
