Vendor Management

QCsolver is York’s on-line vendor registration and management system developed to streamline the administrative tasks associated with vendor management and ensures that all vendor information is kept up-to-date in York’s financial systems.

Vendors are required to register using the QCsolver vendor management portal and ensure they maintain up-to-date documentation within the portal, including annually submitting a portal access renewal fee. Some of the key benefits for registering on the QCsolver portal include:

  • One-Stop Vendor Registration: Vendors can register all their company information, i.e., liability insurance, WSIB certificates and other compliance documents that are required by York.
  • Insurance and WSIB Tracking:  Vendors will receive automatic reminder e-mail alerts notifying them of expiring documentation.
  • Automatic Vendor Credentialing: Vendors can manage expirations of pertinent licences / certificates.
