Office Depot identified as preferred vendor for office supplies

After completing an extensive cost saving analysis, an evaluation of total procurement process, and negotiations with several vendors, the UNT System Business Service Center (BSC) has announced PDME/Office Depot as the new preferred office supply vendor for UNT.

A committee of staff members from each campus and the UNT System administration participated in the evaluation of potential preferred office supply vendors. The committee selected PDME/Office Depot as the preferred vendor, which was unanimously approved by the Business Services Operations Committee.

The BSC encourages departments to begin transitioning to PDME/Office Depot immediately. Departments will receive a “Welcome” email from the preferred vendor containing important program information.

Classroom trainings and webinars will be offered either in the morning or afternoon on selected dates in November to ensure a seamless transition to the program:

  • 9 to 10 a.m. or 2 to 3 p.m. Nov. 18 in the Business Leadership Building, room 155.
  • 9 to 10 a.m. or 2 to 3 p.m. Nov. 19 in the Gateway Center, room 131.

Office Depot’s ordering website is ranked very high among all internet retailers in the country, which will make for a smooth online ordering experience. Prior to training, PCard holders must register on the Office Depot ordering website.

PDME/Office Depot was selected based upon the following criteria:

  • Overall cost savings
  • Reporting capabilities
  • Office Depot’s intuitive on-line ordering system
  • Robust customer service

The BSC is excited about the transition to PDME/Office Depot for the purchase of everyday office supplies. It is estimated that departments at UNT System institutions will save up to 25 percent on office supply purchases in the first year. Department participation is crucial to the success of the program.

Once received via email, please review the program manual and other valuable information. You may immediately begin using the Office Depot website to place your office supply orders to realize and maximize savings. Or, feel free to wait to use the site after attending the onsite training classes scheduled at member institutions.

For answers to questions regarding the program please contact the BSC at 940-369-5500, toll free to 855-868-4357, or via email to bsc@untsystem.edu.
