For Suppliers

How to do Business with the University System of New Hampshire

Welcome to the University System of New Hampshire's procurement page. We work with suppliers from diverse backgrounds to ensure that our organization has access to the best quality products and services available. As part of our commitment to streamlining procurement processes and ensuring supplier satisfaction, we have adopted the PaymentWorks solution to manage the supplier onboarding process.

Payment Terms

The University System has standard default payment terms associated with different payment options you can select from when you are creating your PaymentWorks profile.

  • ACH: 2/10 Net 30 (if payment is made within 10 days than a 2% discount is applied to the invoice, if it takes longer than 10 days the full payment is made within 30 days)
  • ACH: Net 30 (payment is made within 30 days of the invoice date)
  • Check: Net 45 (payment is issued within 45 days of the invoice date)
  • Wire: International Payments

Specific payment terms agreed to in existing or future contracts will be honored and applied to those contracts. Typically, specific payment terms will only be setup for contracts where there are additional discounts or other concessions associated with those terms.

Insurance Requirements

Please refer to the University Systems standard insurance requirements listed below. Suppliers must adhere to these specific requirements unless an insurance waiver is approved. Note that these are minimum requirements. Some contracts may require higher levels or other types of insurance coverage as determined by the University System.
