Staples Business Advantage is considered the preferred vendor for the purchase of office supplies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. It is recommended that purchases of office supplies be acquired through Staples using the OSCAR eProcurement system.
The advantages to purchasing from Staples through OSCAR, rather than from the Staples store or other retail office supply outlets, are:
- Rensselaer receives a substantial discount
- Automatic tax free status on orders
- Next day "desk top" delivery if order is placed by 3:00 PM
Note: The prices in the Staples catalog do not reflect the discounts available through OSCAR.
