In an effort to realize cost savings across the CSU, the Chancellor’s Office is initiating mandatory participation in a new OfficeMax auto-substitution program. As of Monday, September 10th, Cal Poly will implement the automatic substitution of about 1,700 products with lower-cost equivalents that have the same fit, form and function as higher cost items. In conjunction with campus procurement officials, the Chancellor’s Office will monitor the quality of the substituted items and provide process improvements as necessary. If you have questions or comments, please contact Contracts & Procurement at 756-2234 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Office Max Retail Connect Card
Office Max and Contracts & Procurement are pleased to present an Office Max Retail Connect Card. All Cal Poly employees can now take advantage of the CSU special pricing on contracted office supplies (Office Max Enterprise Solutions catalog) by using the retail card at any Office Max retail store. The cards can be used for personal purchases or for state purchases. Personal purchases can only be made at the Office Max Retail Stores. It is important to note that the Retail Connect Card is a discount card, not a credit card. The card is used to identify CSU contracted items and thus passing on the price discount to the Cal Poly employee.
