Printers and computers: Please do not purchase printers, computers, or laptops from the office supplies stores (Office Depot, Office Max, Staples) without first checking prices with our state contract suppliers that specialize in printer and computer sales. Our preliminary review has shown that departments can typically save $50-$150 per printer over the office supply stores. Please contact Bob Tiney, the University’s buyer for computers and peripherals for assistance. Bob can help you make sure you are getting the best available pricing on computers and peripherals. Bob can be reached at 1-6596 or by e-mail.
