UVM's contracted suppliers perform a critical role in the procurement process. These suppliers have committed to extending the best negotiable terms, service, and prices to all users, large and small, within the University. Beyond pricing, the University has negotiated many other benefits which may not be obvious, including guaranteed performance levels, no-hassle return policies, free delivery, volume incentives, and liability and insurance protection. Use of mandated suppliers is required. Purchasing Services strongly encourages the patronage of our preferred suppliers.
