Notice to Vendors
On July 1, 2015, the State will be upgrading to a new statewide procurement and financial system called IRIS. IRIS will bring changes to how the
State works with the vendor community. The most apparent change will be an online Vendor Self Service (VSS) portal, where you can easily manage
your account information, track payments and other financial transactions as well as submit bids and proposals.
Prior to the procurement and financial systems going live in July, vendors will have the month of June to activate existing
accounts and create new accounts in VSS.
To keep vendors informed the IRIS team has established a landing page at http://doa.alaska.gov/dof/iris/vendor.html.
We are encouraging all vendors to visit the landing page and sign up to receive important email updates regarding VSS.
Note: VSS will not be used for foreign vendors, state employees, and those vendors doing business with the Division of General Services
Leasing Section. Department of Fish and Game Licensing vendors will have their accounts set up by department employees but the maintenance of
the account information will be done by the vendor.
