NEW ONLINE PCARD REFERENCE GUIDE
We are proud to announce that the PCard Reference Guide has been converted to an easy-to-read and search online version, now available on Procurement and Contract's Internal Web Page. You no longer have to search through the entire guide to locate the information you need. Check it out for yourself and see how convenient it is. Each subject area of the Reference Guide is displayed in alphabetical order with a direct link to that information. For a super-quick reference, save this link to your desktop. After your review, let us know what you think and if there are any other PCard areas you would like added.
DELL DISCOUNTS FOR PERSONAL PURCHASES
If you are planning to purchase a new personal computer from Dell, be sure to use the UWF Member ID US15775016 when placing your order. Staff, faculty and students will receive an additional 7% discount on personal purchases. Be sure to provide the above Member ID Number when you order your Dell computer online or by phone.
DO YOU HAVE OPS STAFF WHO NEED A PCARD?
We can help you with that. Due to staff changes and budget cuts, OPS staff may be performing new duties and may need to have a PCard in order for them to properly support your office. Some limits will be in place because they are not permanent UWF staff, but they can have a PCard with low purchasing limits and request temporary increases when necessary. If you have this need and are interested, please have your OPS staff member sign up for the PCard Basic Online Training through the OHR Reservation Training Desk located on the "My Office" Argus tab.
SUSTAINABILITY AND MINORITY PARTICIPATION ALL-IN-ONE
Office Depot is now offering a remanufactured laser toner cartridge from a Certified Minority Vendor (Magnetic Imaging Supplies - MIS) and can be purchased at the UWF/Office Depot Business Divsion Web Site. How great is that? The toner was tested for performance by several departments including two IT Computer Labs. The toners performed well with no leakage or damage to printers. Office Depot has provided quick access to these toner cartridges. After logging into the Office Depot Business Division Web Site, click on "My Shopping Lists" in the left column under "Shopping Tools". Under "List Name" you will see a link titled "CERT MINORITY TONERS". Click on that link to see the list of MIS toner cartridges. If you have questions about which MIS toner cartridge is the correct model for your printer, contact Crystal Patterson, UWF's Office Depot Contract Rep.
