We do a lot of work with school districts and eliminating calls for our W9 to be e-mailed/faxed would save quite a bit of time.

I haven't don it in the past because I don't know if that's too much info to put out there like that.

Would it be stupid to be put a link to a pdf W9 on our payment instructions?

It does have your FID number address business name etc. I am not really sure but when I call the bank my business is set up under they ask me for the FID number the account is under.
just sounds like a bad idea. A better idea would be once a job is secured with a school make sure your process set up has
1- contact the school and email/mail them the W9 for your business.

Every pdf my accountant sends is password encrypted..

Perhaps you could put a link and then call or email them with the password.? I think that would be better than putting it behind a password protected part of your site.
