The final section will ask if you currently have a contract with this Vendor, including how your Personal Information is handled and protected. If you select Yes, you will be required to add the date of your last contract review. The last question will ask for your last audit date, if any has been completed. Note that this is an optional section, so if the Vendor has not been audited yet, this section may remain empty.

Once you are satisfied with the information on the form, simply select Save and Add Vendor to add the Vendor to your Listings.

Note: Vendors that have been previously added into V3 will automatically populate their locations into the Add Vendor form. Users will be unable to change the location in the form, as this is to prevent the creation of duplicate entries of Vendors.
