Register as a Vendor
You are about to enter electronic vendor registration, called BuySpeed Online with the City of Fort Worth. There are several things you should know and some information you should retain after registration.
Step One: Read and agree to the Standard Terms and Conditions (next step in registration) before you proceed with actual registry. These are standard terms under Texas state law and the Uniform Commercial Code. If you do not accept these terms, you may not proceed with registration. Exception: Accepting these terms will have no effect on the terms and conditions of active executed contracts with the City of Fort Worth.
Step Two: When selecting the commodity codes for the goods and services your firm provides, choose as many as may be related. This will ensure the maximum business opportunities for your firm. Please note, you must enter at least one commodity code or your registration will not be activated.
Step Three: After registration, be certain to record and retain your logon ID and password. You will need this to maintain the information in your vendor file. It is entirely up to you to keep your information current. The City cannot make changes for you.
Step Four: Email a copy of your company’s IRS W-9 to the City at PurchasingBSO@fortworthtexas.gov. Your registration will not be activated until a completed W-9 is received and verified. Completed W-9s may also be faxed to the vendor registration administrator at 817-392-7254.
Note: If you have any questions about the registration process or maintenance of your information, please email the vendor registration administrator at PurchasingBSO@fortworthtexas.gov. Someone from the Financial Management Services team will be happy to assist you.
Important: If the name of your firm should change, do not attempt a name change update in this system. You must email the Financial Management Services Department Financial Systems Administration Division at PurchasingBSO@fortworthtexas.gov to coordinate a name change.
