SWIFT Update April 21, 2022

Attention Buyers and Contract Administrators: SWIFT System Email

You may have received a system-generated email sent from SWIFT. The subject is “Suppliers Inactivated for Active POs and Contracts.” It requires your attention. This email is not spam or a phishing attempt.

SWIFT sent this email to you because you have an open contract or purchase order with a supplier that is in the process of being inactivated in SWIFT. The attachment listed in the email is a report that shows suppliers that are being inactivated. It includes the new supplier information and a list of the purchase orders or contracts impacted by this change. There are also directions on the steps to take to update these documents.

Questions about Suppliers?  

Suppliers (also known as vendors or bidders) refer to individuals or organizations that do business with the State of Minnesota. Suppliers can view events, make bids, and review payments on the Supplier Portal.

  • Check out the Supplier Resources page for information about suppliers and the Supplier Portal.
  • For an online demo on how to use the Supplier Portal, view the Supplier Portal video tutorial.
  • If suppliers or bidders have any questions about the Supplier Portal, please refer them to one of the Supplier Contacts below.

Staff Spotlight: Travis Dahle

Travis Dahle is a team member of the SWIFT Module Support unit. He supports the Commitment Control module. 

How long have you been with Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB)?
I have been with MMB/SWIFT Module Support since October of 2018. I have been with the State since March of 2012. Prior to MMB, I worked at the Department of Revenue and Minnesota State (MNSCU).

What's your favorite part of your job?
Things have changed dramatically since beginning at MMB. I am glad that I was able to meet (in-person) the people that I did prior to COVID, as the best part of my current position is easily the people that I work with. This is not only true of the people within SWIFT Module Support but of all units that I work closely with at MMB.

Fun Facts:
My wife (who works at the Department of Health) and I met in Duluth, even though we both lived in the Twin Cities Metro at the time. We also sold our previous home in St. Paul and bought our current home in Woodbury in November of 2020, during the pandemic and in a very challenging housing market. Our daughter, Olivia, turned 5 on Easter this year. Currently, my favorite movie is probably The Big Short; my favorite band is Jimmy Eat World; and my favorite food is, always has been, and always will be: Lasagna!
