All suppliers are asked to visit University Purchasing first when they are on the Gonzaga University Campus. Suppliers are required to fill out a W-9 Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification form and submit it to University Purchasing at 502 E Boone Ave, AD Box 81, Spokane WA 99258 or fax it to (509) 313-5953.
University Purchasing hours are 8:00am to 5:00pm, and closed from noon to 1:00pm, Monday through Friday. Appointments are recommended. Please see the Commodity Split to contact the appropriate Buyer. Completed W9's will be verified with the IRS and U.S. Government Excluded Party List. High priority will be given to vendors who have also submitted a list of Contracts and/or Cooperative pricing that Gonzaga University will be eligible for.
Supplier representatives should realize that all purchasing transactions must be routed through University Purchasing. The sales representatives must not accept a verbal order from University personnel without a valid purchase order number. All orders and contracts signed by unauthorized personnel will not be valid. All vendors should be familiar with the Gonzaga University Purchase Order Terms and Conditions.
Suppliers who wish to leave demonstration equipment with University personnel must coordinate that demonstration with University Purchasing. The University assumes no risk or liability for a demonstration unit. If a department decides to purchase the demonstrated equipment, then the department must process the order according to standard purchasing procedures. University Purchasing reserves the right to request quotes, bids, or proposals.
Gonzaga University is not responsible for vendors receiving parking violations while on campus. Parking for Vendors and Contractors Policy should be reviewed.
Every attempt is made to be fair and impartial in dealing with suppliers. University Purchasing strives to maintain the highest standards of business ethics, professional courtesy and competence in all transactions for the University.
