Scam Warning Reminder!
Jan 29, 2013
A few departments have recently gotten phone calls from an "anonymous caller" asking for printer or toner information. This is a scam! Many times these callers follow up with "free" samples of toner which are quickly followed by an invoice and many many phone calls trying to extract payment. Either hang up the phone or refer them to Procurement Services at x2-7510. For more information on potential scams, see this link.

Staples Smart Size Packaging Coming 2013!

Staples Advantage has begun rolling out "smart size" packages to all of its fulfillment centers with a completion goal by the end of 2013.
