How to find UPenn vendor information

  1. Visit
  2. Click on “Purchasing Services” in the right hand “Business Services” menu in the “Penn Resources” column.
  3. Click on the big “Supplier Search” button on left hand side

From there you can search by keyword, vendor name, etc.

One terminology note: “approved” just means they’re in the system. “Contract” is better and means Penn has some kind of special deal with them, and therefore we aren’t required get other bids for purchases over $5K.
