FirstService Residential Arizona’s Certified Vendors are quality suppliers who add value to our managed communities.
Already providing services to FSR-managed associations?
You understand our vendor qualification process and we appreciate that you have provided us with the insurance, business and license information we requested. Our clients will refer to this information when making an informed vendor choice. Both your company and ours share the goal of servicing clients with integrity. Therefore, we strive to protect clients from the risks and costs of engaging vendors who are not licensed and insured.
Not yet providing services to FSR-managed clients?
We are highly selective in reviewing the qualifications of all our third-party suppliers to our managed communities and we seek business partners who share our commitment providing high-quality, cost-effective service. If you share these goals, we invite you to apply to become an FSR Certified Vendor.
Our independent business credentialing company, Business Credentialing Services (BCS), manages the certification process. Their services include:
Knowledgeable staff who will work with you and your insurance agent to help you meet requirements in a timely fashion
An online registration portal for submitting materials
A secure database for uploading your marketing materials. Our managers can access your materials when they help our Boards choose service providers.
Vendors who meet the requirements will become a FirstService Residential Certified Vendor. Two levels are available:
FSR Certified Gold
- These vendors provide additional insured language on the Certificate of Insurance, as follows: "FirstService Residential and any of its managed Associations."
- This classification enables all State Specific and/or FSR Property Management Company Community Managers to refer your company to their Boards with the confidence that their associations are covered by your insurance.
FSR Certified Silver
- These vendors meet the minimum requirements, and must add insured language on the Certificate of Insurance that names specific FSR managed association(s).
- This designation allows FSR Community Managers to be confident in presenting your company to their Boards, but you must provide appropriate additional insured endorsements specific to each community for which would like to provide services.
BCS charges each registering vendor an annual fee of ninety-five dollars ($95) to verify your relevant insurance coverage and licensing meet all requirements. The fee is paid directly to BCS.
