Best Value

   The University enters into special agreements with many suppliers who offer GW "best value" for its money. In this context, "best value" does not always mean the lowest price, but a combination of price, pre-and post-sales support, and special delivery, finance, or warranty terms. All of these selected suppliers extend some type of preferential terms and/or prices to GW. GW employees are strongly encouraged to choose from these specially contracted suppliers when purchasing goods and services.  When using one of the suppliers, please note that a master agreement has been negotiated with terms and pricing favorable to GW, and  no further contract is required.  Payment for orders against these agreements can be made via P-Card or Purchase Order, however temporary staffing services should always be paid via a requisition released the Blanket Purchase Order listed under each provider.
