A corporation or individual who sells goods or a service is considered a supplier. Pepperdine prefers that requestors use a University Credit Card if they are purchasing products that amount to $5,000 or less. For goods or services that amount to more than $5,000, requestors should create a Purchasing Requisitions.

To select a supplier, we encourage employees to find an existing supplier. If a supplier with your specific needs cannot be found, Purchasing can assist you in locating a supplier.  If necessary, Request a New Supplier by submitting a Supplier Application. The Finance Office is required to keep a Supplier Application and completed W-9 on file for all suppliers conducting business with the University.

NOTE: Payments made to out-of-state suppliers for services performed in California are subject to 7% state income tax withholding when payments exceed $1,500 in a calendar year. In addition, the supplier will be mailed a Form 592B at the end of the calendar year containing all reportable withholdings.
