Statewide Vendor Form
Payments that are processed by the Department of Early Learning (DEL) require the person or child care center to have a statewide vendor (SWV) number. To see if you have a SWV number, please click HERE to search. Please e-mail your SWV number, name and STARS or Provider ID to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to connect your SWV number to your MERIT account.
If you do not have a SWV number, you will need to complete a Statewide Payee Registration form (see below). Once completed, please print a hard copy and sign the SWV form before sending it to DEL. Please submit your signed SWV form via:
Fax: 360.725.2843 or
Mail: The Department of Early Learning, Fiscal Department
PO Box 40970
Olympia, WA 98504-0970
If you have questions about the form, please call us at 866.482.4325 and choose option 5 or e-mail email@example.com.
