Organizations within the Commonwealth of Virginia, nation-wide cooperative contracts groups and Virginia Association of State Colleges and Universities Purchasing Professionals (VASCUPP), which includes William & Mary, have negotiated contracts for categories of items bought frequently. These contracts include discounts from commercial list pricing, guaranteed delivery timeframes or other advantages when compared to buying directly from a vendor. Within each category listing here you will find active contracts available to you with a description of the product lines or manufacturers covered, as well as a description of those advantages. Check out the category guide to see if there's a pre-negotiated deal that makes sense for you when you're making a decision about who to buy from.
Additional guides to contracts by category are under development and will be posted here as they are completed. Check back often, or watch for W&M Digest announcements so you'll know when a category of interest to you is published!
