Application and Registration
Registered suppliers who demonstrate capability and willingness to provide competitive value for the College in their respective categories, will be directed to the individuals most likely to utilize their products or services.
Multiple suppliers may be registered for a given category and may be selected based upon best pricing for any given order.
Primary Vendor status is awarded through a bid process to the vendor providing the best overall value to the College for a given category of products or services. These are generally multi-year agreements with negotiated renewal clauses.
College personnel are encouraged to utilize suppliers with Primary Vendor status as the source of choice for goods or service needs in their respective categories. These suppliers will be listed in the Existing Agreements section of the Purchasing web site for easy access by Augustana Personnel.
New vendors desiring to be placed on this list must request and fill out an application form. Application forms are also available at the purchasing office located in Sorensen Hall, 639 38th Street.
The completed application and Federal W9 as well as any supportive materials describing products or services, including any catalogs or samples should be returned to the purchasing office for approval and inclusion on the vendor list.
