Vendor Customer Maintenance

The Vendor Customer Maintenance section (VCM) of the Master Data Management Branch is responsible for maintaining the vendor and customer records in the Financial Management Modernization Initiative (FMMI).

The new System for Award Management (SAM) has replaced the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) system. Visit for information. Agencies should use SAM vendors first. If the vendor is not required to register on SAM, FMMI PVND is available. For questions, please contact VCM at (504)426-5377.
