SUPPLIER RELATIONS

The following guidelines apply to all Departmental relations in their dealings with suppliers/vendors:

  • Give first consideration to the objectives and policies of Buffalo State College.
  • Conduct business with potential and current suppliers in an atmosphere of mutual confidence and integrity, void of intentional misrepresentation.
  • When making a purchase using the procurement card, strive to obtain the maximum value for each dollar spent.  Consult with several suppliers if possible.
  • Remain scrupulously free from obligations to any supplier.
  • Decline personal gifts or gratuities.
  • Avoid putting seller through unnecessary expense or inconvenience on returned goods.
  • Do not sign any contracts or agreements.  All contracts and agreements must be reviewed and signed by Procurement Services.
