A new campus model for purchasing office supplies has gone into effect. Rather than ordering most items from the Supply Room, departments are able to order directly from the SUNY contract vendor for office supplies, Office Max, which has partnered with S&B, an MWBE vendor that most departments are currently familiar with. A wide variety of items are available through OfficeMax/S&B and supplies are received the following business day after the order is placed. Also from this site, you can now order from NYSPSP and NYSID, preferred source vendors.
Many other SUNY campuses have successfully adopted this model for the purchase of office supplies. Direct, online ordering results in savings and efficiencies in terms of inventory reduction, outdated inventory, staffing, and space utilization. A campus pilot involving seven departments was conducted during the Fall 2014 semester and the overall results were positive. Participating departments were pleased with the ordering process, pricing, timely receipt of orders, and customer service provided by the vendor.
Everyone who orders supplies for their department is encouraged to register as a new user at the Office Max/S&B website and may begin using the site for online office supply purchases. Both P-card and non-P-card users will be able to place orders through website. Please use the link below to register.
