Year End Purchases - Promotional Items


As the end of the fiscal year approaches, Procurement Services sees an increase in the purchasing of promotional merchandise.  JMU has nine vendors on contract for promotional merchandise that departments must use for orders $5,000 and over and strongly encouraged to use for orders less than $5,000.  The promotional contracts are posted on our Public Gateway.  The vendors have been vetted, are CLC licensed, have exceptional pricing, and the majority are SWaM.  As a reminder, when requesting quotes from contracted vendors, request list price and contract price on the quote.  Procurement Services need both sets of pricing to verify contract pricing is being received. Promotional merchandise with more than a de Minimis value and average cost to the University of no more than $10 or more/item, excluding setup charges and shipping costs may be purchased.  See Financial Policies and Procedures Manual, Section 4205.324.
