There are several vendors, contractors, and manufacturers that have been approved to provide furniture, equipment, and ergonomic products for classrooms, labs, offices, and work stations.

Office and work station furniture, classroom, lab furniture and lobby furniture across the campus are purchased through a Purchase Order. A specific buyer in Contracts * Purchasing Services is assigned to the commodity to provide customer services and to process these requests in the most efficient manner.

It is recommended that department staff members provide as much information as possible on the requisition as to the functionality and end-user criteria and requirements. The requisition can simply request a quote for a product if there are no specifications available.

It is the responsibility of Contracts & Purchasing Services to examine all purchase requests for products and services, including chairs, office furniture, lab and classroom FF&E (furniture, fixtures and equipment).
