Will there be an opportunity to add vendors to the program?

University Communications and Purchasing intend to evaluate the Designated Vendor Program on an annual basis starting in June 2019. During this evaluation, we will consider the volume and types of services that offices and departments are using, as well as overall satisfaction with individual vendors based on brief post-project surveys that aim to measure quality, customer service and cost of services rendered. At that time, we will make decisions about ways to improve the program, including potentially adding vendors in certain service areas. It will be important to maintain the right level of vendor relationships to meet the needs of the community and retain vendors in the program. We will keep a running list of vendor suggestions from the campus community for possible consideration on an annual cycle.
