When choosing vendors for state-funded purchases it is important to also promote New York State Purchasing initiatives. To do this, selection should follow the hierarchy below. For example, a vendor from the Open Market would be selected after considering State Preferred Sources, State Commodity Contracts and Certified Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise options.
Effective September 10, 2012, all office supply orders should be placed directly with Protech Office Supplies via their Website. If you need to add, delete or modify the individuals in your department who are authorized to order from Proftech, please contact Lisa Bruns in Purchasing.
Orders can only be placed online by end users if they have a procurement card. If you do not have a Procurement Card, this website is there for you to obtain pricing and then to input this pricing into a requisition on the web procurement system. The Purchasing Department will then place the order with Stapleslink for you.
