Remarks President Karbhari has requested that this be included in our contracts when renewed for all vendors and that this should be addressed as contracts come up for renewal
Whereas Many vending machines on campus including the ones in the University Center and the Central Library do not accept cards; and
Whereas Students who do not have cash on hand and want to grab a snack between classes cannot use these machines; and
Whereas Many students are left without the option of utilizing the vending machines and the vending machines are losing profit that could be attained.
Be It Further Resolved That In the next Request for Proposal for a vendor supplying vending machines, it be required for all vending machines to have an option to utilize credit and/or debit; and
Be It Further Resolved That The university work with our current vendor to implement credit and/or debit card options for students until the Request for Proposal is sent out.
