Contract Highlights

  • Either vendor may be used. However, no current lease can be terminated to switch providers. As the end of the lease approaches, it is advised to compare available models, features and pricing between both vendors.
  • The contracts cover Multifunctional Devices (MFDs) - such as network copier/printers.
  • The contracts provide for fixed discounts from list prices. These fixed discounts are applicable to both leased and purchased equipment. Under the lease option, for 36, 48 or 60 months, the cost will include a monthly lease price and a cost-per-copy print charge.   Each print charge (cost per copy), will pay for the cost of all consumables, maintenance, and service for the equipment.
  • Departments can consolidate all of their units for billing purposes and receive one monthly invoice for equipment leases and one monthly invoice for copy charges. In addition, you may now pay your printer/copier expenses with your ProCard, manage your account on-line, and get set up for auto-pay if desired.

How to Order

  1. Contact the representative listed above for the vendor you wish to use.
  2. To formalize the lease, vendors will provide the requisitioning department a lease document outlining the terms of the lease including units being leased, location, department contact, pricing, and all other relevant details. All lease documents must be submitted to the Office of Procurement & Payment Services for signature.
  3. After execution, the documents will be returned to the department for direct submission to the University’s current sales representative listed above.
  4. Upon placement, acceptance of the equipment, and receipt of invoice(s), the department will initiate payment for the lease and maintenance contract by following the How to Pay Your Invoice guidelines.

How to Pay Your Invoice

  1. Have the vendor set up your account for on-line payment via ProCard. This is the preferred method and eliminates many payment process steps required when paying with a traditional voucher.
  2. If a department does not opt for on-line ProCard payment, a Non-Purchase Order Voucher must be created and submitted with the appropriate backup documents.
  3. If submitting a voucher, include a copy of the signed documents referenced in HOW TO ORDER #2 along with the invoice as support for the first payment.
  4. For subsequent voucher payments, the voucher ID of the initial payment must be referenced in the 'Comments' of the non-purchase order voucher.
