In recognition of National Purchasing Month, the Office of Procurement and Contracts will host a series of vendor fairs throughout March. The fairs will be an opportunity for the campus community to meet with vendors of products and services the university purchases on a regular basis. This year's fairs will highlight and feature vendors who offer environmentally-friendly products and services.
Schedule and focus of vendor fairs:
- March 2 – Preferred vendors who specialize in Travel Services will have an opportunity to meet with staff members who plan, coordinate, and organize travel for their departments.
- March 18 – Vendors offering shredding, in-line water, and ride-sharing services as well as recycling solutions and ergonomic furniture will be on hand.
- March 23 – Staples, our preferred office supply company, will feature the latest offerings from 18 different manufacturers.
Keeping with the "green-friendly" theme of this year's fairs, attendees will receive reusable jute tote bags. Door-prize drawings for green items will also be held.
All fairs will be in the 6th floor Boardroom of Butler Pavilion from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Light lunch will be provided.
