OfficeMax ongoing formulary management
BJC conducts ongoing reviews of its OfficeMax formulary in an effort to provide product options, focus our purchases, and eliminate unnecessarily high cost products. These efforts may occasionally result in the need for requestors to find alternate options for products that have been ordered in the past. Please be flexible in this regard as you look for products on the OfficeMax website.
There are options to request items not available on formulary, which entails completing a special request form and submitting it to firstname.lastname@example.org for review (the special order form is attached along with this communication). Keep in mind that a compelling reason is needed in order to gain approval for a special order, and P-cards are not to be used for special orders unless authorized by Supply Chain.
Another component of this initiative is to purchase products from the most appropriate supplier. Listed below are the websites that should be used for purchasing the indicated types of products.
Office Supplies: OfficeMax: www.business.officedepot.com
Food items: MorrisonHealthcare (e-mail Theresa Jackson at Theresajackson@iammorrison.com)
Industrial, Facility or Hardware items: Grainger (PeopleSoft/MyBJCNetProdigoeMarketplace)
