Other frequently asked questions (FAQs)

  • What is a Dun and Bradstreet (DUNS) number and why do I need it to register?
    A DUNS number is a nine-digit number issued by Dun & Bradstreet Inc. to identify each corporate location of a business. Most companies already have a DUNS number. You can find yours on the Dun & Bradstreet Web site. If you do not yet have a DUNS number, D&B will provide you one at no cost. You also can enter 111111111 as your DUNS number to let us know that you do not have one.
  • What is an NAICS and why do I need it to register?
    The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) is the standard used by federal statistical agencies to classify business establishments for the purpose of collecting, analyzing and publishing statistical data related to the U.S. business economy. Burns & McDonnell uses this classification system to identify the capabilities of our suppliers and subcontractors within our database. For help determining your firm’s NAICS, click here.
  • What is the next step after I register?
    Once you have registered and your information is verified and entered into our supplier database, your information will be available to all of our procurement professionals. Due to the volume of inquires we receive you will not be contacted until a purchasing professional matches one of our current needs with your firm's capabilities.
  • What if I am already a supplier?
    We ask that you ensure your data is correct and up-to-date by either updating your existing information, if you already have a login, or registering your firm online, even if you have an existing business relationship with Burns & McDonnell.
  • How can I get in touch with a purchasing or project manager to discuss a product or service my company offers?
    Due to the large volume of inquiries we receive, we do not provide direct phone numbers or e-mail addresses for our purchasing organization. Instead, we use the supplier database as a means of providing supplier information to our purchasing managers. If you have a product or service you would like to introduce to Burns & McDonnell, please register and include any relevant brochures or attachments. When your registration is complete, your company information will be made available to all procurement professionals within Burns & McDonnell.
  • How can I get a list of upcoming needs or upcoming projects?
    We do not post our upcoming needs because of the frequency of changes. The best way to view our upcoming projects is to read through our press releases, news articles and feature projects on our Web site.
  • I am a certified minority-owned, women-owned, or disabled veteran owned vendor. How can I do business with Burns & McDonnell?
    All prospective suppliers use the same process to register with Burns & McDonnell. The registration form captures diversity status and the information is made available to our supplier diversity coordinator. 
  • What are some things that can keep me from submitting my registration?
    In order to submit your information, you must fill out all the required questions.
  • I am a current supplier for Burns & McDonnell, and I have been asked to fill out or update my supplier registration profile. Why am I being asked to do this?
    If you are a current supplier, we will periodically request that you update your company's information to make sure we have current information. We will also periodically request that an inactive supplier come in and update their profile.
  • If the Primary Contact for my company is no longer employed by us, what should I do?
    Please send an e-mail message to Equifax to have your profile updated and send you a new login ID and password.
  • I have read the FAQ list and I still have questions. Is there anyone else I can contact?
