Full Purchasing Policies

Printing Services

The purchase of all printing services must be processed on a requisition and submitted via OSCAR prior to the start of the print work.

  • The requisition can be for new printing requirements or reprinting of previously printed publications, forms, brochures, typesetting and/or design services, etc.
  • The purchasing agent responsible for printing will review the requisition and determine the necessary action — select a vendor or obtain quotations as required by purchasing policies and procedures.
  • The purchasing agent responsible for printing maintains a status log of all printing orders submitted.

This includes copywriting, design, photography, Web design, external multimedia (PowerPoint, video, etc.), and printing. Contact SC&ER (either your account executive or the print purchasing agent) to discuss the scope of the project.

A purchasing agent will select potential vendors for requested services. Once bids have been obtained and the vendor is chosen, a requisition must be submitted electronically through OSCAR. 

Using a P-Card

The P-Card cannot be used as a payment method for printing except for printing Rensselaer stationery containing a pre-approved corporate identity (e.g., letterhead, envelopes, business cards). These materials can be ordered directly through Benchemark Printing, Rensselaer’s preferred print vendor.  Contact Jim Scognamiglio at (518) 393-1361.
