Dear Vendor Coordinators,

As previously communicated, we are excited to announce eMaryland Marketplace Advantage (eMMA) is releasing new functionality that impacts the Vendor Registration, Set-Up Process, and Vendor Maintenance Process. To support your use and adoption, please see the below information on the new features and how they will impact your day-to-day Vendor Coordinator tasks.

  1. Automation of the current GAD Form 710 and X10 processes: Vendor Coordinators will now initiate these requests in the eMMA portal instead of completing a manual form.
  2. Vendor Self-Registration: Allows vendors to self-serve and initiate new vendor record setup as well as change requests.
  3. Automated approval workflows: Vendor Coordinators will have complete visibility to all requests for new vendors or changes to existing vendors that will occur within your agency and will review and action these requests directly in the eMMA portal before the request is sent to GAD.
  4. Automated Vendor Validation: The eMMA portal will automatically validate the Vendor Record including performing validation checks on: Vendor Address, Tax ID, Sanctioned Entities list, and Bank Routing Number.
  5. Vendors will be required to designate a new Trusted Advisor contact/role: This will allow Vendors to set up or change banking or payment information.

Training support, including a User Guide and Quick Reference Guides, will be available prior to the release. Our next communication will share more details about how to sign up for training.

If you have any questions regarding this email or the eMMA Project, please contact the eMMA Project Team at


Thank you,
