JMU Procurement Attends 12th Annual SWaMfest

JMU attended the 12th annual SWaMfest on October 12th and 13th. SWaMfest is hosted by the Virginia Association of State College and University Purchasing Professionals (VASCUPP) and is the Commonwealth’s premier networking, educational and professional development event for small, women and minority-owned businesses. The two days included a vendor fair for SWaM firms to exhibit and network, engaging workshops, and meaningful guest speakers. JMU had the opportunity to talk with SWaM firms about doing businesses with the Commonwealth and educate them on our processes while learning about the goods and services they provide.

Good Printers, Inc., a contracted JMU vendor for printing services, was in attendance and had this to say about the event, “We believe the event was very beneficial in several ways. In regards from an educational standpoint we stepped away with stronger understanding of how each VASCUPP school operates. In addition, the networking event allowed us to learn more about how other vendors operate in the same target market as well as initiate a few leads.” 

The contract with Good Printers Inc. can be used by faculty and staff in any department. To learn more about Good Printers Inc.’s contract, view it on our Public Gateway.
