CalSTRS business partner registration FAQ
Vendors interested in submitting bids or responses to CalSTRS business opportunities are encouraged to register with CalSTRS and obtain access to our online accounting system, the Supplier Self-Service Portal (SUS).
Registration in the SUS portal allows CalSTRS to establish a contract, purchase order and to schedule payments.
Please contact Partners@CalSTRS.com to request a registration form and instructions.
Contact CalSTRS Partners at Partners@CalSTRS.com. Request to register your business with us and we will email you a Business Partner Form. Once we have your fully completed form, you will receive a user ID and password to set up an account in our SUS Portal system.
Your business profile should be generated within three to five business days after we receive your completed Business Partner Form.
The business partner registration process enables CalSTRS to keep an accurate record of your company and payment information and allows us to maintain the data required to meet our tax reporting obligations. Registration is necessary to process contracts, purchase orders and payments.
Business opportunities are not posted in the Supplier Self-Service Portal. For more information, see Doing business with CalSTRS.
CalSTRS and other State of California business opportunities may be viewed at the Department of General Services’ Cal eProcure and on CalSTRS.com. There is no need to register to view opportunities.
For more information, see Doing business with CalSTRS.
Any change to your business profile on the payment system must be submitted through the Business Partner Form. Please contact Partners@CalSTRS.com for the form.
No, you do not need to re-register. Please send the certification number and new expiration date to Partners@CalSTRS.com and we will update your business profile.
The W-9 and STD 204 forms do not contain all of the necessary information to determine both CalSTRS’ federal and state tax reporting requirements. The CalSTRS Business Partner Form is more complete in that it is designed to capture both federal and state tax reporting requirements for both foreign and domestic vendors. In addition, it also allows for multiple alternate payment addresses.
