Ford’s Supplier Registration 5-Phased Process

The Ford Supplier Registration Portal (MSRP) will facilitate the sourcing of potential diverse suppliers by providing Ford buyers with access to detailed supplier capability profiles. Once you have registered, our registration site partner, will verify any certifications that you have uploaded and reported. You will automatically receive a notification upon successful completion of the registration process.

Ford procurement groups and buyers will have the ability to review and evaluate your company for potential business opportunities. It is important to include all of your company's capabilities and updated diverse certifications.

Once you have registered, you can access the portal at any time to update your profile. Note: A company may be contacted only if their capability profile listed matches a current procurement need. Although registering in this portal does not guarantee that your company will become a supplier with Ford, it does provide enhanced visibility of your firm to Ford sourcing professionals and our Tier1 supply base. To begin registering your company, enter your information on the right. If you're already registered with Ford, thank you for registering, please log in now to access your account.
