Office Supply Vendor Transition

The Green Mountain Higher Education Consortium (GMHEC) members Champlain College, Middlebury College and Saint Michael's College, are continuing efforts to obtain cost savings for the three institutions while adding benefits for all. Recently GMHEC went through a request for proposal for Office Supplies. As a result of the Request for Proposal (RFP) process, a recommendation was made to select W.B. Mason for all three institutions as part of our consortium efforts. W. B. Mason provides the lowest market basket pricing on products we order and offers a paid internship to one student for each school per year. The overall service and ease of website use were additional factors in our consideration.

There will be more details to come, but we have begun this transition and enivsion it to be completed by March 2015.
