As of June 2016, McGraw-Hill Education implemented a Vendor Management System (VMS), Fieldglass, and a Managed Service Provider (MSP), Agile-1, to assist MHE with our contingent labor program. Please note this is currently only for domestic contingent labor, not goods. The MSP process and VMS tool will affect traditional temporary workers, suppliers, and independent contractors/freelancers. This solution enhances our current process of managing contingent workers. For current partners of MHE that fall in the contingent labor space, expect to receive further information directly from Agile-1 when onboarding your organization if you have not been onboarded already.
Contingent Labor is defined within MHE as the following Supplier types:
Traditional Temporary/Staff Augmentation Workers; hourly workers that are provided to MHE via a staffing agency or a professional services organization by either the recruited workforce method or directly pay-rolling pre-identified individuals.
Independent Contractors/Freelancers; individual with 0-8 W-2 employees. Independent Contractors are working with MHE under contract with outlined deliverables and resources in order to complete a project in a specific timeframe.
Supplier SOW Company/Project Based Workers; Organization with 9 or more W-2 employees that offer project based workers. Supplier organizations are working with MHE under contract with outlined deliverables and resources in order to complete a project in a specific timeframe.
Questions: Any questions please direct to them to the Agile-1 team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ariba Network Information
The Ariba Network(AN) is a business-to-business e-commerce application that streamlines the overall procurement process with suppliers and improves the invoice to payment cycle by faster invoice reconciliation leading to on-time payments. Using the AN is MHE's preferred way of doing business. Suppliers will receive MHE contracts and/or purchase orders electronically, which they are then able to invoice against. Suppliers have the ability to track invoices and payment status over the AN.
To join the Ariba Network (AN), please go to http://supplier.ariba.com and choose "Register as a New Supplier" to register. The registration process only takes a few minutes. Once registered, you will receive an ANID#, which is a unique identification number specifically assigned to your business by Ariba. Please record this number for future reference and add this to your MHE supplier profile so that we can begin to transact with you electronically. For your reference, here are step by step instructions on the registration process. If you need additional assistance, please contact Ariba Network’s Customer Support Team at 1-866-218-2155.
