For Suppliers

Notre Dame Open Bids

To meet the growing demands of our campus users, the University has implemented a sourcing portal through our e-procurement platform, buyND. This is designed to expedite the sourcing and bidding process by allowing suppliers to respond to sourcing events electronically. Suppliers can view and bid on Requests for Information, Requests for Bids, or Requests for Proposals by clicking here.

Supplier Registration

To register as a supplier with the University of Notre Dame, you will need to be invited via Payment Works. We do not take unsolicited requests for registration.

CXML and Electronic Invoicing

buyND+ is Notre Dame’s eProcurement ecosystem hosted by Jaggaer. Notre Dame’s faculty and staff place orders for goods and services through the Jaggaer system.  The Jaggaer system is made up of Punchout connections to supplier websites and hosted catalogs that contain supplier’s products and related information.  These punchouts allow campus users to shop and requisition goods and services in an efficient way.  Notre Dame’s Procurement Services is looking to add additional suppliers to its Jaggaer ecosystem. For more information click here.

Jaggaer Supplier Portal

When filling out your Payment Works registration, you can answer whether you would like to register in the Jaggaer Supplier Portal. This portal allows you to have access to viewing your PO information such as annual spend, outstanding POs and invoices, and more. If you answer "yes", you will receive a separate email invitation from Jaggaer to register.

Commodity Codes

When filling out the registration, you will need to select which commodity codes your items fall under. The link below shows a list of all of the commodity codes for items that our end users are eligible to purchase. Our codes are based off of the UNSPSC codes. If you are familiar with these, you can list out your UNSPSC codes in the commodity code selection field. The more accurately you select these codes, the more likely our end users are able to find your products. You will only be able to select 10 maximum codes. If you are unsure which commodity codes to choose, take a look at the categories available and add the appropriate codes.

Supplier Expectations

Procurement Services' goal is to ensure that the products and services we purchase meet the needs of the faculty and staff of the University.  We establish business relationships with many suppliers from large multi-national corporations to small locally based diverse businesses. Our ideal supplier is one who understands the mission of the university and conducts its business in a professional and ethical manner.

Providing high-quality customer service and offering innovative solutions to meet the demanding needs of our university is most valuable to us.
