Vendor Registration | Vendor Orientation | REPTRAX | Certified Diverse Vendor Registration
Broward Health requires that all vendors be registered in the Vendor Registration System (VRS). VRS Registration is mandatory and supersedes all previous registration efforts undertaken by Broward Health. All new and existing vendors are required to register using VRS. NOTE: A separate registration is required for subsidiaries/entities having different tax identification numbers.
VRS supplies information ONLY and does not constitute an assumed obligation by Broward Health to guarantee contractual award or agreement/contract or an order for a product or service.
Once your VRS registration is completed, you will receive an e-mail confirming your registration and a copy of the VRS Welcome Letter. To enable VRS e-mail notifications to be recognized as originating from a trusted sender and delivered to your inbox instead of your junk/spam mail, we recommend you do the following for the email accounts you will be providing in sections 1 and 3 of your VRS registration:
NOTE: Do not send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. All emails regarding VRS should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and emails regarding Supplier Diversity should be sent to email@example.com.
Broward Health encourages all registered/certified vendors to attend one of our vendor orientation sessions. Orientation outlines the policies and procedures governing “how to do business” with Broward Health. The next orientation session will take place on January 30, 2014, and June 11, 2014. All sessions promptly begin at 9:30 am and last approximately two hours.
Sessions take place at:
Broward Health North - Conference Center
201 E Sample Road
Deerfield Beach, FL 33064

REPTRAX – gaining access to BH Facilities:
Broward Health has implemented REPtrax to help manage vendor access and credentials. All vendor representatives visiting any BH facility must sign up for the “no charge” Base Membership with REPtrax.
- On each visit to a BH facility, vendors must check-in/out at the REPtrax Vendor Kiosk to print a REPtrax Vendor Access Badge, before proceeding through Security.
REMINDER: NO COLD CALLS – VENDORS MUST HAVE AN APPOINTMENT!
Certified Diverse Vendor - (SBE/MBE/WBE) Certification
All vendors wishing to be recognized as a Broward Health (BH) Certified Diverse Vendor (SBE/MBE/WBE), must complete the vendor registration process (explained above) AND upload a current copy of the company’s SBE/MBE/WBE certification documentation issued by one of Broward Health’s approved certification partners below:
You can verify your company’s Certified Diverse Vendor status with Broward Health by clicking here: Certified Diverse Vendor Directory.
If you are not a Certified Diverse Vendor company and would like to join Broward Health, as a company that seeks SBE/MBE/WBE companies as business partners, please review our Certified Diverse Vendor Directory.
