Beginning in mid-August 2016, FFRA website content will be moving to the Northwestern IT site's new section for Administrative Systems.

New NUFinancials Vendor Request Center Now Available!

Now you can enter a new vendor request through the NUPortal or the new Vendor Request Center in NUFinancials.


Features include:

  • Built-in vendor and address search - no need for separate report
  • Ability to save and update requests before submitting
  • New automated notifications: Submission, Send Back, Approval, Withdrawal
  • Approval notification email includes vendor ID
  • Option to notify someone else of an approved request
  • Ability to review and correct requests after they have been submitted
  • Foreign vendor address support

Users will now be able to:

  • Save a vendor request and return to submit it later (e.g., if you don’t have all the required forms)
  • Correct and resubmit a request that has been sent back
  • View status and history of your own vendor add/change requests

Only people with appropriate access to NUFinancials will be able to create and submit Vendor Requests.

    • Current Requester and Online Voucher users will be given access automatically.
    • New users (after go-live) will need to request the Vendor Code Request role.
    • Supervisors will see additional Vendor Code Request role in yearly audit.
    • Updated security forms listing the new role are now available on the FFRA Security page.
