What is the Accredited Vendor Information Professional Certification Program?

The AVIP certification program empowers accounts payable and procurement professionals with the knowledge and skills to strengthen internal controls, demonstrate the knowledge required to manage vendor information efficiently and securely, and elevate skillsets.

With a deep focus on current best practices for vendor onboarding and information management, Vendor Information Management Center of Excellence (VIMCOE) helps accounts payable, procurement and sourcing professionals understand current best approaches to efficiently and securely onboard and register new vendors and manage vendor information.  

VIMCOE was developed by Financial Operations Networks (FON), the founder of the Accounts Payable Certification Programs.  Over the past two decades, thousands of accounts payable and finance executives have made measurable improvements to their operations by putting their teams through FON’s accounts payable certification and training programs.  VIMCOE’s experience and expertise brings clarity and focus to vendor onboarding and information management – an increasingly challenging and risky corporate function in today’s environment.
