SIGMA VSS provides one stop for vendors to maintain their information, such as addresses, bank accounts, contracts awarded, and payment information. SIGMA VSS improves online security and protection of personal information. SIGMA VSS allows companies to have multiple users with different roles to review or update information, respond to business opportunities, see all payments made by the State (by check or direct deposit), and receive electronic communications. Vendors can easily see and maintain their information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, outside of standard maintenance, in SIGMA VSS through a secure connection. Vendors do not need to be registered to see business and grant opportunities. Vendors must be registered to respond to business or grant opportunities. Companies should ensure that users have been assigned the proper roles to see payment information, or respond to bids and grants.
