New Office Depot Contract Helps Save the College Money

A Message from Yaremis Fullana, Managing Director, Procurement

The Procurement Department has transitioned into a different Office Depot contract. What does this mean for you?

  • Expanded catalog list;
  • More purchasing options;
  • Less restricted items;
  • Continued discounts; and
  • No changes to the ordering process.

Additionally, be sure to take advantage of the Select Cart feature, which is automatically available when shopping online. This unique feature alerts you when there are more cost effective brand equivalents available. Unfortunately, from January through July 2018, there were 320 savings opportunities offered and only 14 accepted. The 14 accepted saved Valencia $298. The 306 that were not accepted cost Valencia an additional $3,100. So, please take advantage of this feature and see the savings come in.

To take advantage of this feature, once you place an eligible item in your shopping cart, you will be able to view Office Depot alternatives. For directions on how to use this, click here.

Please remember that Office Depot is our contracted office supply vendor of choice. Office supplies should not be purchased via Amazon, unless the cost is lower. Office Depot restricted items that remain in effect are furniture, printing, marketing and hardware technology. If your product is not in these categories and are showing restricted, please send an email request to the Procurement at valenciaprocurement@valenciacollege.edu, so it may be added to the catalog.

If you have any questions, please email valenciaprocurement@valenciacollege.edu.
