Vendors please sign up to receive IRIS Project Updates!
As part of the IRIS implementation, the State’s procurement and accounting processes will be transitioned from a paper-based system to a web-based system. This will allow vendors to respond to solicitations, maintain account information, track financial information, and process invoices electronically through a Vendor Self‑Service (VSS) portal.
This portal has been developed specifically for posting information related to vendor outreach. Over the course of the next year we will begin communicating general information, training materials and timelines. Currently you may review Frequently Asked Questions from Vendors and Contractors; this list of FAQs will grow as the project progresses.
Prior to Go Live, the IRIS Project will reach out to all current vendors with the State of Alaska to notify them of the change and how it affects them. After their data is converted from AKSAS, vendors will be provided with IRIS account logins and encouraged to update their information in IRIS through the online VSS portal. Those vendors who do not have internet access may contact a State resource to have their account information entered into IRIS on the vendor’s behalf.
While setting up their account, vendors can select preferences for which they qualify as well as select a preferred notification method (i.e. mail vs. electronic).
The State is in need of vendor email addresses, please sign up using the link below to receive project information. This will allow us to more efficiently and effectively disseminate information.
We want to hear from you. Anyone who will be impacted by the IRIS Project can expect support and preparation from the IRIS Project Team in advance of implementation.
