OPERS FORM Clarification

Clarification on OPERS form for vendor setup
Previous guidance was that the OPERS form was needed with the vendor setup form when paying an individual for a service. It appears now that any payments (excluding reimbursements or miscellanenous payments for youth awards) to an individual, or sole proprietor, for goods or services requires the OEPRS form along with the vendor setup form (primarily for requisitions).
More clarification may be coming. In the meantime, if you need to submit a requisition to pay an individual (anyone that uses an SSN on their vendor setup, even under a business name) they will need to fill out the OPERS form to be attached with the requisition.
