Office Supplies

OfficeMax is the CSU system-wide official vendor for office supplies. OfficeMax offers contract pricing for a wide selection of office supplies, toners and ink cartridges, recycled products, and technology supplies.

Auto-Substitution of Office Products

The CSU has been exploring ways to help reduce expenses. It was determined that cost savings could be achieved making adjustments to the office supply purchases from OfficeMax. As a result, on October 1, 2012, the auto-substitution program was implemented at SJSU. This program automatically replaces of about 1,700 products commonly purchased by departments from OfficeMax with economically priced equivalents that have the same fit, form and function as the higher cost items.

Auto-substitution of products purchased through OfficeMax is not new for San José State, as toner cartridges and paper products have always been substituted for ones with recycled content. This new program applies to a broader scale of products and we believe there will be no effects in terms of product quality to campus departments. For more information regarding this program, visit CSU Chancellor’s Office.
