Vendor of Record Program
Procurement Services, on behalf of the University of Toronto, enters into competitively procured agreements with suppliers of commonly used goods and services. Suppliers are selected from established collaborative VoR arrangements with the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (MGCS), Ontario Education Collaborative Marketplace (OECM), other agreements open to Broader Public Sector (BPS) organizations, or agreements resulting from a University of Toronto-led competitive procurement process. These arrangements result in “Approved Supplier” status.
Approved Suppliers provide competitive pricing and discounts, and a variety of options to reduce overall cost to the University. Many waive their shipping fees and provide enhanced warranty and customer service levels. Approved Suppliers have agreed to set Terms and Conditions, making the ordering process more convenient, efficient and expeditious. Purchasing from Approved Suppliers may eliminate the requirement of obtaining additional quotations. Approved Supplier agreements add the security of knowing all are compliant with University of Toronto Procurement Policy.
Procurement Services will continue to identify opportunities and negotiate contracts for goods and services that offer value to the University community. If you wish to leave feedback regarding an Approved Supplier or the VoR program, please contact Candida Charles, VoR program coordinator.
