Find and select a vendor

To buy goods and services for work purposes, Northeastern employees may choose vendors that have previously been vetted and approved by the university, or may hire new vendors.

To find and select an already-approved vendor, use one of three methods: myMarketplace, Northeastern’s preferred e-commerce channel for buying goods and services; Preferred Suppliers that have negotiated pricing and purchasing agreements with Northeastern; or consortia, companies that pool the purchasing power of like-minded organizations to achieve favorable contract terms.

To hire a new vendor that isn’t affiliated with the three options above, Northeastern employees must pre-clear the vendor in Banner Finance.
