Modify a Supplier / Payee
Learn about the process of modifying suppliers or payees at Columbia University.
- Vendor goes to Vendor / Payee Request Web Form (Department can request an address or header modification for suppliers or payees).
- Vendor / Payee completes information, submits updates.
- Vendor Management (VM) validates the information.
- VM follows up with the vendor/payee to resolve any questions or missing information.
- VM approves updates, enters updates into ARC.
- Vendor / Payee and/or Department requester are notified that the updated profile is ready for use.
There are additional required steps for requests to modify disbursement information:
- Change from check to wire (international only).

- Vendor/Payee goes to the online questionnaire and requests wire modification.
- Vendor Management authenticates the identity of the requester.
- Once the requester has been authenticated, the requester can then complete and submit the modification request.
- VM validates the submitted information.
