Ohio Suppliers / Change in Request to Proceed Status
Per our newsletter that went out to all Round 33 applicants and mailing list subscribers in June 2019, OPWC no longer uses the Request to Proceed/Vendor Approval form for our Infrastructure Program (Clean Ohio RTP is still required due to necessary attachments involved). Please follow the guidance below. **To stay on top of all pertinent policy updates, please be sure to subscribe to our newsletter HERE and open emails sent via our subscription service. Thank you!
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, the list below 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.
**Once a new vendor is set up as an approved vendor, please email us the OAKS confirmation email so we can get you into our system.This ensures that the new vendor is listed on the approved vendor list below.**
