Supplier Not in the System?

  • When initiating your Requisition/Direct Payment Voucher in FTS, invite your supplier to on-board as a new supplier. For detailed instruction refer to the Requisition or Direct Payment Voucher tutorial. 
  • Once your supplier has completed their on-boarding, you will receive a notification and will then be able to complete the requisition/direct payment process.



  • All suppliers must be properly on-boarded into our system in order to submit the requisition/direct payment voucher for approval in FTS.
