The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) uses a combined vendor file with all members of The Texas A&M University System for AggieBuy and Concur vendors. Please review the Texas A&M University vendor page for instructions for setting up vendors needed for those systems. In situations where a vendor is needed for FAMIS only (rare), please complete and submit this Laserfiche form. For U.S. entities, use the A&M System Substitute W-9 and Vendor Direct Deposit Form. For foreign vendors, see section below for the form choices.

  • W8-BEN – Foreign individuals performing services in the U.S. – Royalty payments, software downloads, maintenance and repairs, etc.
  • W8-BEN-E – Foreign entities performing services in the U.S. – For companies selling software, intellectual property, royalties, maintenance and repairs, corporations or LLC’s, etc.
  • W8-ECI – Foreign vendors that are a beneficial owner claiming that income is effectively connected with the conduct of trade or business with the U.S. (other personal services).
