Purchasing office supplies

St. Lawrence University has an exclusive agreement with Office Max for the purchase of office supplies and paper at reduced costs. Orders are placed online at www.officemaxsolutions.com and the items ordered by the close of business on Friday are delivered directly to campus departments on the following Wednesday.

The Brewer Bookstore maintains a small inventory of office supplies and paper which may be purchased for emergency needs. The bookstore purchase price contains an additional markup, however, so it's preferable for departments to purchase supplies directly from Office Max using the online system.

New users should Ruta Ozols in Purchasing. She will establish the user as an authorized buyer for the designated accounts and return a user id and password. The user may then access the online system to order supplies. The system is very customer-friendly and provides excellent online assistance. When placing an order, the user will be required to enter the appropriate account to be charged for each purchase. Charges for all purchases ordered through approximately the 23rd of each month will be posted directly to Webadvisor (St. Lawrence University's Financial Records System) by the last day of the same month.

Additional questions or requests for assistance should be directed to Ruta Ozols (x5908) or Kristie Adams, the university's customer service representative at Office Max.

Copier Paper: departments requiring standard, white paper should contact the Duplicating Center(x5891). The paper will be ordered and funded by the Duplicating Center and delivered by Office Max on the same schedule as office supplies.

Other paper (for printers, faxes, etc.) departments should order directly through Office Max and charge their department account. The Office Max order number for standard white paper is #P1SP-8420.
