Staples Advantage Is State Contract Vendor for Office Supplies
The State of New York has negotiated a centralized contract with Staples Advantage, making Staples the sole New York State contract vendor for office supplies. In addition to discounts on more than 8,000 commonly used items, Staples offers close to 300 items that are priced extremely low.
While purchasing through Office Max will continue to be an option, Staples should be the vendor of choice for all office supply needs if pricing is competitive and items can fit the form, function, and utility required.
Procurement Services and Staples will soon host a formal training session for placing online orders. Once a date has been set, an announcement will be made in the Daily Bulletin. Meanwhile, please place Staples orders by completing a pink requisition form and submitting it to Procurement Services. Catalogs are available for current registered Office Max users to pick up in Procurement Services.
We are working diligently to make the transition from Office Max to Staples as smooth as possible. Further information will be communicated as it becomes available.
