Supplier onboarding

Registering as a supplier in Ariba

Thomson Reuters uses Ariba, a third-party electronic transaction processing tool, to manage our supplier onboarding process and to issue and manage purchase orders (POs) and invoices. The supplier onboarding process ensures that all suppliers are screened and set up for payment in our system so that invoices can be managed and paid efficiently. Suppliers transacting with Thomson Reuters are required to comply with our on-boarding process and the Thomson Reuters Supply Chain Ethical Code.

As part of the mandatory setup process, all suppliers are required to complete the Supplier Profile Questionnaire (SPQ) to be set up for invoice payment in Ariba. Note: if you are a supplier located in Brazil, Japan or the United States you must include the relevant declarations and forms (provided on this page) in your SPQ submission.
