The RIFANS Supplier Portal is an internet self-service tool which gives the State's suppliers the ability to directly access their information and enter business transactions through a secured web site.
The main purpose of the portal is to provide greater transparency and improve customer service, while increasing efficiency and productivity. This portal is a completely electronic interface. Aside from an up-to-date web browser such as Microsoft's Internet Explorer, special software is not required to access this system. Furthermore, there is no fee required to be paid by your business to register or utilize this portal.
The major benefits include, but are not limited to, real time access to information regarding the procure-to-pay life cycle, the ability to generate invoices against purchase orders, and enhanced communication through email notifications. Also, in the future, other collaborative procurement functions will be added to enhance the portal.
Refer to the training material link which includes a detailed breakdown of the functionalities of the portal. For additional support, you may email State_Portal_Help@admin.ri.gov or call 401-222-1888.
