Service Providers and Sales Vendors

Yale strongly discourages any vendor sales representatives from visiting campus. 

Vendors who are providing services on-site at Yale, or other groups coming to campus such as site inspectors or safety monitors, must agree to comply with Yale’s Travel Guidelines and Vendor Site Access requirements. Among other procedures described in the requirements, all vendors will be required to check in via Yale’s contractor/vendor daily check-in application upon arrival to campus.

Note: If any on-site duties are subcontracted, it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure subcontractors have appropriate training.
