Notice to Vendors
On June 1, 2015, the State will launch a new Vendor Self Service (VSS) web site that will allow vendors to easily manage account information,
track payments, and respond to procurements electronically.
To keep vendors informed the IRIS team has established a landing page at http://doa.alaska.gov/dof/iris/vendor.html.
Vendors are encouraged to visit the landing page and sign up to receive important email updates regarding VSS.
**SPECIAL NOTICE** for state employees, foreign vendors, Department of Fish and Game (F&G) licensing vendors, Office of Public Advocacy (OPA),
and Division of General Services (DGS) lease vendors:
- VSS will not be used by state employees and foreign vendors.
- F&G licensing vendors will continue to have their accounts set up by department employees as they are done today, however once the account is
established vendors can use VSS to maintain their account information.
- OPA contracted attorneys will continue to use Practice Manager Web to record time and case management activity to allow existing management
controls to remain in effect for payment invoicing. VSS may be used to track and reconcile payments along with maintaining vendor information.
- DGS lease vendors must select the business type "DGS - General Services Lease Vendor" during the registration process or when creating a new
account. If at a later date a vendor becomes a DGS lease vendor they must update their account with this business type. This is to ensure information
in your lease agreement contract file is synchronized with information that is on file in VSS. If you have questions regarding this process,
please contact DGS at 269-8486.
