Supplier Onboarding

As part of our standard business practices, VMware has automated our Procure to Pay Process to streamline processes and compliance. We are using Coupa Supplier Portal (CSP) to manage company information, purchase orders and receive invoices from suppliers.

Supplier Onboarding

All suppliers are required to be onboarded before VMware can do business with them. Supplier onboarding is the process of gathering documents and data needed to set up a company as an approved supplier and to enable our organization to efficiently conduct business, purchase goods and services, and make payments to that company.  

To become a VMware supplier, please partner with your VMware business contact to initiate an onboarding invitation to connect with VMware through Coupa Supplier Portal (CSP).

Once a supplier has registered, updated their ‘VMware Profile’ with the required information and complete the risk assessment in Coupa Risk Access (CRA) a confirmation will be sent upon completion of the onboarding process.

Additional training and information available under ‘Resources’.

Supplier Maintenance

Suppliers may access to VMware’s Coupa Supplier Portal (CSP) to maintain their company details including updating contacts, address, bank information and other regulatory forms.

Suppliers are responsible to maintain current information for the following: 


  • Address Information
  • Purchase Order Email Delivery Address

  • Primary Contact Information


VMware requires a purchase order for all goods and services. Purchase Orders will be sent with VMware’s terms and conditions to the purchase order email address on file.
