Important Information For Purchasing and Making Payments

A Substitute W-9 form has been developed to replace the W-9 form that is required to be completed by most Clark vendors. The Substitute W-9 form provides Clark withadditional important contact information related to purchasing and also gathers banking information we will need when we implement direct deposits (ACH) for vendor payments.

Vendors that meet the following must complete the Substitute W-9 Form:

  • A U.S. entity or individual (including a resident Alien) ; AND
  • Provides goods or services to Clark University; AND
  • Will receive payment or reimbursement from Clark University

Foreign vendors and individuals should not use the W-9 form but rather a W8_BEN

Students and employees of Clark University do not need to complete either form.
