What is an Approved Supplier?

An Approved Supplier at the University of Toronto has been selected following an open competitive procurement process to enter into a procurement arrangement with the University. This process authorizes one or more suppliers to provide goods/services for a defined period on terms and conditions, including minimum pricing/discounts, as set out in the agreement (departments may negotiate a better discounted price with suppliers).

Approved Suppliers provide competitive pricing and discounts. Many have waived their shipping fees and provide enhanced warranty and customer service levels. Approved Suppliers have set Terms and Conditions that have been pre-negotiated, making the ordering and payment process more efficient. All Approved Supplier agreements are compliant with University of Toronto procurement policy.
