Benefits of using iBuyNU


How are iBuyNU vendors chosen?

iBuyNU is strategically managed by Procurement and Payment Services. Only Preferred Vendors will be considered for enablement in iBuyNU. There are many factors that determine whether a particular vendors is enabled in iBuyNU:


The iBuyNU marketplace will continue to evolve as more contracts and agreements are established. It is the goal of Procurement and Payment Services to eventually have catalogs in iBuyNU that meet most of the day-to-day needs of departments/schools. For most products, such as general office supplies, there is no plan to enable more than one vendor. There will be some natural overlap (for example, toner cartridges may be available on contracts for office supplies and computer peripherals). There will also be some overlap when more than one contract is awarded for certain products as a result of a formal bid managed by Procurement and Payment Services (such as computers and office furniture).
