New Primary Lab Supply Contract
Michael V. McKee, Assistant Vice President & University Controller
Purchasing Services is pleased to announce the award to Fisher Scientific as the primary provider of laboratory supplies under UF Contract ITN07TO-135. This contract is effective immediately through April 30, 2012.
Through this negotiation the University was able to achieve overall savings of approximately 11% over the previous contract. This represents a projected cost savings of over $1,000,000 annually to the University of Florida.
In recognition of UF’s high volume purchases, the deepest discounts are available on 300 frequently purchased items called a ‘hotlist’. The hotlist will be adjusted semi-annually to accommodate shifts in buying patterns. Other discount incentives include new lab start up promotions, large single order discounts, and University specific incentives.
Contact information, the hotlist, and pricing and ordering information may be found on the Purchasing website at http://www.purchasing.ufl.edu/main_contracts-fisher.asp.
