Procurement Supplier Registration


Suppliers must complete an online procurement registration to do business with the University.

ISU’s procurement systems rely heavily on the information gathered from suppliers via our online procurement registration.  This information allows us to provide University personnel with current information about your company and the products and services you offer.  The procurement registration can be accessed at:

Should you have any questions regarding the registration, or need assistance in completing it, please contact our supplier service desk at 515-294-8201.

When you complete the registration, you will be taken to a page confirming that your registration was submitted. This is the only notice you will receive. All registrations are accepted and entered into our database. Any questions regarding your registration can be referred to


Supplier Registration



ISUBid is Iowa State University’s electronic bidding system designed to streamline the competitive bid process for both Procurement Services and the supplier community. 

Formal competitive bids are solicited for goods and services over $50,000 – as a single purchase or over the life of the contract.  There are other situations when competitive bidding is warranted such as use of federal funds, participation by a conflict-of-interest supplier, and at procurement agent discretion.

You will need to complete a supplier registration in ISUBid if you want to receive bid opportunity invitations via email or to submit a bid response.

Additional information on ISUBid can be found on the ISUBid page.
