Updates from the Finance Department:

Preferred Purchasing Sources

Business Cards, Stationary, and Professional Campus Mailings: Please partner with the Marketing department.

Catering: Sodexo is our contracted on-campus caterer. When weighing the value of the $20 delivery fee, remember to factor in your time and resources to order, pick-up, set-up, and clean-up for an event.

Furniture: Partner with Campus Planning/Physical Plant before making an furniture purchase. Physical Plant may already have what you need and Campus Planning may have a resource or a contract that can save you money.

Office Supplies: The Green Mountain Higher Education Consortium (GMHEC) has contracted with WB Mason for office supply purchases within our institutions. 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. Contact for specific WB Mason account questions.

Photocopiers and Printers: The College is under a managed printing contract with SymQuest administered by the IS Department. All printer and copier needs must be vetted with the IS Department.

Technology: Partner with the IS Department when purchasing college-owned equipment (including computers and peripherials), and software. IS has agreements with numerous vendors which provide additional cost savings and may already have licenses for the product you are seeking.
