The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) is pleased to announce that we are partnering with PaymentWorks to automate and strengthen onboarding controls for payees conducting business with the University.

If you are currently registered/doing business with the University, you do not need to do anything at this time. Penn State will enroll all current suppliers through PaymentWorks in a three-phased approach.

Phase 1: October - November, new suppliers registering with the University or any current suppliers that need to make changes to their existing supplier record will register through PaymentWorks.

Phase 2:  Beginning December 1, all current suppliers who conduct greater than 100 transactions annually will be invited to register through PaymentWorks.

Phase 3: Starting January 2023 the University will invite all remaining suppliers to register through PaymentWorks.

The Office of Central Procurement is responsible for the procurement of goods and services for 24 campuses. We strive to conduct business in a fair and equitable manner using a competitive bidding process. Procurement decisions will be made based on quality, service, delivery, and price.
