Certain commodities are standardized to:
- Avoid numerous small orders.
- Comply with state legislation.
- Take advantage of quantity discounts.
Office Supplies Standard
All office supplies should be ordered from Staples Advantage, the CSU's official vendor for office supplies.
Recycled Products Standard
State legislation has mandated that 50% of all purchases by state agencies must meet recycled product guidelines, so recycled products should be ordered whenever possible. All copy paper ordered from Office Max must be a recycled product unless no recycled product is available for that item.
All copiers must be ordered through the Campus Copier Program to take advantage of reduced prices negotiated by Purchasing.
