Mekorma Vendor Validation is designed to offer a streamlined process that reviews and validates a broad range of information. The validation results are categorized as OK, Warning, or Error, allowing you to easily identify and address any issues. To review the validations in more detail, open the Validation Result tab within the vendor record.

From the Validation Result tab, you have the option to view all validations in one grid or to view a specific set of results. Click the Validations drop-down and select either All Validations or the specific record you would like to view. They are listed sequentially with the most recent at the top.

  • In the event of an incorrect address, Address Validator suggests the closest matching address in the Match To Value column. If the address cannot be confirmed due to inaccuracies or too many similar results, the Internal Message column will notify you accordingly.
    • If the address cannot be validated, independently confirm the address with your vendor.
  • A successful TIN match informs you that the TIN and name match IRS records in the Provider Message column. If there is an error, the result will inform you of IRS naming conventions and TIN requirements that must be met in the Internal Message column.
    • If a TIN match fails, request a W9 from the vendor. If not available, ask for the correct name and TIN.
  • OFAC results indicate in the Provider Status and Match Type columns if the match is partial or full, providing which part of the record matches, what it matches to, and the degree to which it matches with the OFAC Sanctions List in the Match Attribute, Match Value, Match To Value, and Match Degree columns respectively.
    • If you receive an error or warning, visit the OFAC website and verify that your vendor is not on the Sanctions List. If the vendor is on the list, contact your AP management team.
