Office Depot has been selected as the exclusive provider of office supplies for Metropolitan State University of Denver beginning Sept. 1.
The deal resulted from a joint solicitation issued by MSU Denver and the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. By joining forces, both universities will enjoy volume discounts on general-use office supplies such as pens, paper, toner, etc., says Stacy Steelman, director of procurement and distribution services for the University.
Buyers will place most orders through the Internet, though they will be able to make in-store purchases with the same contract pricing. In addition, Office Depot will offer discounts on personal purchases by University employees.
Steelman says the agreement between MSU Denver and UNC followed conversations between the presidents of both institutions about partnering for purchases. Also in the works are joint purchases of office furniture and promotional items, she adds.
Training sessions for designated buyers will be held soon.
