"Brown First" Policy
The University policy governing procurement of printing/graphic services, and food services requires all departments to submit requests directly to the Graphic Services Department, and to the Brown Dining Department. These internal providers will determine if the request can be handled “in-house”; and if so, will proceed to fulfill the requirement. If the job specifications require outside contract services, the request will be “outsourced” on a competitive bid basis!
It is important to note that a portion of the revenue or savings from these transactions is reallocated to the President’s Program for Academic Enrichment.
