About Vendoring

The process of adding new suppliers or revising current supplier information in the Berkeley Financial System (BFS) Supplier Database is handled by the Supply Chain Management Vendoring Unit.

Why is Our Process Important?

Any Business or Individual you wish to pay or to do business with must be entered into the Berkeley Financial System before they can be used (or activated) in BearBuy.
