Purchasing News

Purchasing has issued a newsletter for October with updated information regarding catering, independent contractor forms, toner scams, and other items related to procurement. The July newsletter is also available on our website.

As part of the continuing implementation of the Managed Print Services program, Ricoh-USA now provides all digital-impression equipment purchased by University departments. This includes all printers, scanners, fax and copy machines, and multi-function machines. Ricoh is also the contracted supplier for all toner and ink supplies purchased by the University for owned (non-MPS) equipment and manages the University's three on-campus Document Service Centers.
