Supplier Registration Process

Prior to doing business with the City of Minneapolis, all suppliers must have a Supplier Enrollment Application along with a valid W-9 Form on file with the City and have read the City's Conflict of Interest Policy.

Not until those documents are on file will a supplier file be created for your organization to be able to conduct business with the City of Minneapolis.


If you are a new supplier to the City of Minneapolis, you will receive four (4) documents from the City staff member you are working with:

  • COMET Supplier Registration Packet (supplier application)
  • W-9 Form (Request for Taxpayer Identification information)
  • City of Minneapolis Conflict of Interest Policy
  • Instructions for sending invoices to the city for payment

Please complete and return the application and the W-9 form to the City staff person you are working with, for the purchase.

If you are a current supplier with the City, you do not need to complete these documents as long as your supplier information hasn't changed since last doing business with the City.



If working with a new supplier to the City, please send them the three documents listed above.

Once the documents are completed and returned back to you, please send via e-mail to or fax to 612-673-2042. Sending these documents to Accounts Payable will serve as a request to set up the supplier in COMET.

Your next step is to submit a requisition request to CRR (Central Requisitions Order Form (pdf)) to obtain a Purchase Order. Follow the A/P General Guidelines for the next steps in the process. 

Contact the Accounts Payable Department at to submit an invoice or update supplier information.
