Using Strategic Suppliers

Strategic Suppliers and General Purchasing Guidelines

Strategic Procurement & Contracts (SPC) has established relationships and negotiated university-wide contracts with several suppliers that include favorable terms and volume-based discounted pricing on the most commonly purchased goods and services. These approved, centrally managed suppliers for which there is a negotiated, university-wide contract in place that included a selection process that was most often the result of competitive bidding - either direct or through membership in various group purchasing organizations (GPO) - are referred to as Strategic Suppliers.  

Strategic Suppliers and contracts (including those for which there is a punchout in the BrownBuys Marketplace in Workday) are actively managed by the Strategic Sourcing Team in SPC. While competitive bidding/quotes are always encouraged at any level of spend and required at $25K, purchases from Strategic Suppliers do not require competitive bidding/quotes, unless what is being purchased from that supplier is not covered under the contract that is in place and that was already awarded as the result of a competitive bid. Wherever applicable, purchases should be directed to the Strategic Suppliers listed below to aggregate Brown’s spend, optimize value to the University, and ensure alignment with University requirements and priorities. A broader list of Strategic Suppliers can be found in Workday by searching "Strategic Suppliers." 

There may be individual departments that have established relationships and agreements in place with suppliers that may be specific to that department's needs and/or area of oversight. Since these are not University-wide,  applicable to the majority, or directly managed by SPC, they may not be listed below or fall under SPC's definition of strategic supplier but may fall under a different category of approved or managed supplier.
