Let’s Get Supplierized! 

This can be a challenging process, but this guidance will make for  an easier experience. In order to receive a grant payment from the San Francisco Arts Commission, you must become a registered, compliant supplier and meet the City and County of San Francisco’s insurance and business tax requirements.

*Please note: You will only be required to register as a City Supplier if your application is approved for funding. Insurance, business tax and equal benefits requirements will be explained and made available upon approval of grant funds. If you are a previous grantee or received payment from another City department, you are already a City supplier and only need to keep your account updated​. Please contact Supplier Management if you have difficulties accessing your account.


STEPS TO BECOMING A CITY SUPPLIER

To get started, you need to complete a short registration process to become a "Registered Bidder."

Prior to starting the bidder registration process, please have the following information available:

  • Tax Identification Number: Companies should provide their Federal Employee Identification Number (FEIN). Individuals may supply their Social Security Number.
  • DUNS Number (if applicable): A DUNS Number is only required if you will be working on federally-funded contracts/grants.
  • San Francisco Business Registration Certificate (if applicable)
  • Completed and Signed W-9 Form (or W-8 if your business is a foreign entity). Blank W-9 forms can be downloaded from www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9.pdf.
