How to Buy Furniture

Overview
Furniture contracts for the University are based on the manufacturer line. Local contract dealers service the University's needs and are listed below. All furniture contracts include discounts from list pricing (most are 30% to 70% off list) and pricing usually includes delivery and installation. Although each website reflects available items, pricing specific to the University is available via a local dealer. Each dealer also provides additional services including design, on-site consultation as needed, and installation. Contract furniture items automatically meet flammability ratings as required by the University Fire Marshal.

How to Purchase
Steelcase and Hon (if purchasing from OfficeMax) products are purchased via SRM e-catalogs. Hon products are available for purchase from within the same e-catalog as office supplies. Select Steelcase products can be customized and ordered via SRM e-catalog; customized Steelcase orders for larger, more complex purchases can be added to a Shopping Cart from within the e-catalog using the quote-to-cart feature.

Purchases from other contracts can be made via procurement card if less than $5000 total order value. For orders >$5000, enter a Free Text Shopping Cart and attach the quote.

Additional Notes:
Hospital, clinical, and College of Medicine areas are standardized on specific manufacturer lines and other brands cannot be purchased. For additional information and guidance, contact:
-Hospital Areas: Judy Pelfrey, 323-8274, judy.pelfrey@uky.edu
-Clinic/Ambulatory Areas: Denise Freeman, 323-5001, denise.freeman@uky.edu
-College of Medicine: Ann Emmerson:323-0008, ann.emmerson@uky.edu

Furniture purchases for public areas (e.g., lobbies) within main campus must be approved by Facilities Management-Interior Design. Call 257-5911, ext. 253 for questions or email.

UK Environmental Health and Safety offers occupational assessments and recommendations to departments upon request. For information call 257-2924 or visit their website.

Due to University Fire Marshal flammability compliance, furniture purchases from other retail marketplace providers, such as IKEA or Amazon.com, are generally prohibited.
