JMU has multiple contracts with promotional items and imprinting services vendors. These contracts have been competitively procured, all vendors are CLC/IMG (Collegiate Licensing Company – Learfield IMG; JMU’s trademark licensing firm) Licensed for JMU Identity Standards, are eVA self-registered, and most are SWaM vendors. Per JMU's Financial Procedure Policy 4205.313: Departments cannot place orders for promotional items that exceed $15 per item, excluding set-up charges or shipping costs.

Exceptions to these Mandatory contracts are limited and currently include imprinted items purchased through the JMU Bookstore (Follett), and items required by NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association)  rules to be purchased from a specific vendor under branding regulations.  Any other individual purchase for promotional or imprinting must be approved by Procurement Services in advance of the purchase.

Promotional Items and Imprinting Services Contract Information

The contracts for Office Supplies are Mandatory Contracts for campus.  Campus departments can choose to utilize either TSRC (The Supply Room Companies) or RGH Products.  Both contracts allow for significant discounts to departments, provide for incentives back to the university, and support our SWaM initiative.  TSRC is a small, woman-owned firm located in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  RGH Products is a small, minority-owned firm and is a diversity partner of Staples, located in Baltimore, Maryland.  Both contracts were negotiated on behalf of several higher education institutions in Virginia utilizing their collective spend for best pricing and other incentives.  JMU specific punchout catalogs in eVA will be utilized to ensure the discounted pricing.

TSRC Quick Ship Furniture Program -  JMU Procurement Services, as a benefit of the university receiving Level III, has been able to develop this JMU/TSRC Quick Ship Furniture Program. A small number of specific furniture items will now be available for campus to purchase without additional waivers. Delivery on these specific items will be 7-14 days and all offer substantial savings on comparable items previously purchased through VCE. We have worked to identify items at different price points for departments to have options that will be within their budget. The items selected are from a reputable manufacturer (HON) with warranties in place. The JMU/TSRC Quick Ship Program also allows us to utilize a certified SWaM vendor for these purchases. In addition to the savings received, the university will also benefit from incentives on these purchases already incorporated into our TSRC contract.

To purchase the products listed, you must obtain a quote from Alan Taylor, or call 804-869-1369. Once you have a quote, the order must be entered as a non-catalog TSRC order in eVA w/ the quote attached to the requisition. The purchase order should be emailed to Alan Taylor, for processing with their furniture division.

More information can be found in our FAQ Document, the Quick Ship flyer, and the Sit-Stand flyer.
