Before entering into a significant business arrangement or contract with another company or organization, it may be advisable to obtain a “credit report” for the company or organization from Dun & Bradstreet (D&B), provided they have an account with D&B. This report will help you assess the financial health and stability of the potential service partner.
D&B charges a fee for their reports. You will need a Puget Sound P-Card or other credit card (and seek reimbursement) to obtain a D&B report. Obtain approval from the responsible budget manager before ordering the report.
D&B credit reports can be ordered, downloaded, and paid for online from D&B's website at www.dnb.com. There are several reports (and price levels) you can choose from.
For assistance with choosing, purchasing, and interpreting D&B reports, you are welcome to contact:
