eSupplier Portal
Once you earn a state contract, you can manage purchase orders, invoices, and payments through the eSupplier portal.

The Supplier Portal is designed to provide suppliers with convenient access to information about their financial interactions with the State of Ohio. The Supplier Portal is easy to use, accessible across multiple devices (computers, smartphones, and tablets), and efficiently enables self-service functionality. Users of the Supplier Portal can:

  • Register to do business with the state; or
    • If the user’s business is already registered, request to have your OH|ID associated with your business
  • View Dashboards
    • Pending purchase order, invoice and payment totals
      • By year
      • By state agency
    • News stories
    • Access additional features
      • Search for purchase orders, invoices and payments to see the status of each
      • Launch eBid, eSettlements* and update UNSPS codes
      • Manage Users**

* To access eSettlements the user and the supplier require further setup. For more information please contact us at 1-877-644-6771

** Manage Users functionality requires that the user has Administrator rights. For more information please contact us at 1-877-644-6771

OH|ID

The Supplier Portal is accessed using the state’s Enterprise Identity Management System, OH|ID. Suppliers Users may view the Supplier Portal Navigational Guide for instructions on creating an OH|ID if they don’t already have one.

OH|ID provides an 8-digit user ID that can be used to access a variety of the state’s online applications. It delivers a secure and private experience for users during online interactions with the state – providing advanced fraud detection, prevention, and analytics features.

We encourage you to sign up for an OH|ID to access the portal. With your OH|ID, you may do the following:

  • Add your business to your account, either as a new or existing supplier
  • Begin navigating around the portal

Navigating the Portal

Supplier Portal is designed to make it quick and easy to navigate through information about your financial transactions with the State and find the details you need. The ways you move around the site are like other popular websites today, with common features including:

  • A top menu bar that that is consistent on pages across the site
  • A search function that makes it easy to find specific invoices, purchase orders, and payments
  • Links in lists and details that give you quick access to move between associated invoices, purchase orders, and payments

More details for each of these activities is found in the Supplier Portal Navigational Guide .

Perhaps the most important rule to remember in using these features is that you are encouraged to explore – the Supplier Portal is designed for you to move throughout the site, with multiple ways to get to most information and find the details you need. Feel free to click around the site to find the ways of using it that work best for you.

If you run into challenges – or want to tell us your favorite part of the site – don’t hesitate to reach out by email (ohiosharedservices@ohio.gov) or phone (877-644-6771).
