A new vendor can be added to the active Vendor List in the application by following these steps:

  1. Access the solicitation in PRISM.
  2. Navigate to the Distribution | Vendors tab.
  3. Add a vendor to the Vendor List.
  4. Mark the checkbox for the newly added vendor and click the "Issue" link in the action bar and continue through the pop-up window prompts.
  5. If the solicitation was previously sent to Unison FedConnect, this will ensure the solicitation is available to the vendor on the FedConnect portal. Note: The vendor must log into FedConnect in order to access a directed solicitation.
