Vendor Registration and Yardi VendorCafe® Enrollment

Ventas and Lillibridge utilize Yardi VendorCafe® (with VendorShield Compliance), a secure website designed to streamline communication, minimize administrative work, and to make it easier for vendors to maintain and update information.

All vendors and suppliers to our Company, and the properties we manage are required to complete a registration through Yardi VendorCafe®, and to comply with our policies including the Ventas Vendor Code of Conduct.

The following information is required for registration:

  1. Legal Entity/Company Name and Website Address
  2. Remittance Address, City, State, Zip
  3. Contact Name, Phone and Email
  4. IRS Tax ID
  5. Contact information for your insurance agent
  6. Signed and Executed Services Contract
  7. Related Party Information (if applicable)

Our supply chain is strategic to our business and we manage vendor relationships consistent with our Global Code of Ethics and Business Conduct. Information obtained from all our vendors including contracts, quotations, prices and other proprietary materials is safeguarded, protected and used only for legitimate business purposes. Confidential materials are not disclosed in any way to other vendors, outside organizations or to any unauthorized persons. Disclosure of confidential materials is professionally unethical, damaging to Ventas and the relationships with our vendors.

Registration is by invite only, if you receive an invitation or automated alert you are encouraged to review the Supplier Registration Steps and FAQ's prior to beginning the self-registration process.

Important: Vendors are not permitted to begin performing work for our Company until registration is approved and complete. For further assistance and questions specific to set-up, please contact VendorShield Technical Support at or +1 877 890 8627.
