The State’s new eProcurement tool, eMaryland Marketplace Advantage (“eMMA”), improves how Maryland does business. eMMA provides state departments and agencies, as well as our vendor partners, with modern technology to support procurement and payment processes. It will deliver efficiency and transparency, reduce costs, reduce fraud, and leverage data analytics to improve reporting needs.
If your company transacts with the State of Maryland, either through a contractual function or invoicing state agencies, eMMA’s next deployment, Release 1.2, will make it easier for you to do business with the State.
Release 1.2 will provide the following functionalities:
New processes that will be available through the eMMA portal:
- Vendor Registration & Setup Process - Allows vendors to register their own company/organization in eMMA
- Vendor Maintenance Process - Allows vendors to request changes to their own profiles and maintain information
Vendors will have the ability to maintain:
A. Demographic Information – New functionality will allow vendors to register and self-service
demographic information in a streamlined interface
B. Remit-to Addresses – Maintain vendor payment address information
C. Designate Contacts – Assign contact information via telephone and email as well as designate
key points of contact for your organization (such as a Trusted Advisor contact for verification of
D. Banking Information – Allow vendors and authorized State users to enroll, change, or cancel State ACH
E. Vendor Documents - Allows vendors to upload and manage documents in their eMMA profile (such as
an IRS Form W-9, etc.)
The State is excited to share these features with you soon. Additional communications, including opportunities for training on the new system and process, will be sent soon to keep you informed of Release 1.2 and how it may impact you.
