Vendor Identification (VID) Section

The Vendor Identification (VID) Section is responsible for the maintenance of the Vendor Identification System. Electronic documents, *DEFINE GGVs, initiated at the departmental level are used to establish a VID or make changes to an existing VID. All GGV documents are reviewed and verified with various State of Texas Systems. All vendors classified as individuals, sole proprietors and partnerships, must complete a Payee Identification Form (PIF) before payment can be made.


For information and tips on GGV documents visit the Vendor ID Number page.
