Staples Office Supplies Contract

In a cooperative buying effort, the TBR and U.T. Systems have jointly contracted with Staples for office supplies purchases.  The Staples contract offers next day desktop delivery and online ordering through the catalog in Govs eshop.  A $60 minimum order level applies to all orders, as additional contract discounts are possible at renewal if the system-wide average order size reaches certain levels.  Departments are encouraged to maximize order sizes in order to achieve greater discounts. 

All office supplies are to be purchased from Staples unless a lower price can be obtained from another vendor.  If an office supply purchase is made from a vendor other than Staples, it is the responsibility of the department making the purchase to maintain and submit documentation to Account Payable with its invoice showing proof that a lower price was received on the item. 

If you have a return, you must contact the Staples Customer Care Team for a return authorization.   The Staples Customer Care Team can be reached at toll free at 877-826-7755 or Fax 877-609-7770.
