What does this mean?

For our campus, we are most focused on complying with Project Sunlight for procurement purposes. When there is communication with a vendor (known as a "vendor appearance") via video or in person this communication must be reported. Written communications such as letters, faxes, forms and emails are not considered appearances and telephone conversations are now optional for SUNY to report.
Please fill out and submit the appearance form to your appropriate campus liaison within 24 hours of communication. Communication via phone is optional to report and letter, email or fax does not need to be reported.
