Sourcing and Procurement Collecting W-9s from Vendors


VPF Sourcing and Procurement is in the process of collecting W-9 forms from vendors for which MIT does not have a W-9 on file. Per federal and state requirements, MIT must have a W-9 form on file for a vendor or else MIT must withhold federal (28%) and state (7%) taxes from any payments to that vendor.

Members of the Sourcing and Procurement team have been either calling or sending emails to vendors requesting that they either fax their W-9 to 857-209-5757 or email it to mit-vendor-docs@mit.edu.

Moving forward, members of the MIT community are asked to work with their buyers in Sourcing and Procurement to make sure W-9 forms are submitted and are on file for all vendors.

Vendors and members of the MIT community may contact at procurement@mit.edu or 617-253-7241 with any questions.
