In conjunction with the Office of Sustainability , the Procurement Services Office would like to invite you to the screening of Terra Blight on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at 7 p.m. in the Kulynych Auditorium in the Byrum Welcome Center.
As our insatiable appetite for electronics grow, the waste produced by these devices when they reach the end of their lifespans creates a problem we should all be concerned about. Procurement Services promotes responsible purchasing for the Wake Forest University campus — reduce, re-use, recycle. We encourage all to view this insightful documentary.
Before the event, there will be a collection for personal electronic waste in the parking lot of the Byrum Welcome Center starting at 6:30 p.m. No University-owned equipment, please!

Representatives from AT&T, Sprint and Verizon will be on campus Monday and Tuesday to answer questions about your cell phone plans and educate you on WFU discounts available to you in an event called “Cell-a-bration.” This event will take place July 23 (1-5 p.m.) and 24 (9 a.m.-2 p.m.) in the Green Room of Reynolda Hall. The representatives will be able to make changes to your account while on-site. Please bring your WFU ID with you.
Additionally, WFU is piloting a new Mobile Communication Device (MCD) Stipend Program. Departments have the option to convert to the Stipend Program and identify individuals who have a business need for a device and provide them with a Non-Compensatory, Non-Taxable monthly stipend. This program is designed to replace corporate plans and personal reimbursement plans used for individually assigned devices. Departmentally pooled devices should stay on corporate accounts, which can be set up through Procurement Services.
After the pilot phase, Procurement Services will be meeting with business managers and department heads who will review and decide on Stipend Program implementation. Learn more about the program at “Cell-a-bration” days or contact Procurement Services directly for more information. If your department is in the pilot and has already completed MCD documentation, individuals can come and complete the transition.

A new contract between Wake Forest and Office Depot has been negotiated. This new contract is a collaborative effort with Wake Forest Baptist Health, to create a single contract for all of Wake Forest University, and offers better pricing, a dedicated support representative, a renovated space in the Campus Bookstore, and a new web portal exclusively for students.
The University is already enjoying the new pricing structure, which provides an additional 15% off our already discounted pricing.
Two other important changes based on the new contract will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2013:
- Office Depot will be discontinuing the “old” site as of Dec. 31, 2012. Beginning Jan. 1, 2013, the only way to order from Office Depot will be through Deacon Depot. Staff from Procurement Services and Finance Systems will be reaching out to all departments not already live in Deacon Depot to get them transitioned by Dec. 31.
- To be able to continue to take advantage of free shipping, as well as to support the University mission of sustainable practices, Office Depot is moving to a $35 minimum order requirement. A $9.95 shipping rate will be applicable for all orders that do not meet the $35 minimum.
If you have questions regarding these Office Depot changes, or would like to speak to someone regarding transitioning your department to Deacon Depot, the Procurement team would love to hear from you! Please contact us.

As many of you are aware, after lengthy and extensive collaboration with many campus departments, the University has deployed a new procurement process that automates the way we acquire goods and services. This new process is based on an electronic procure-to-pay solution called Deacon Depot that eliminates the paper-based processes that are currently in use. The University is transitioning to Deacon Depot using a phased approach. If you are not currently using Deacon Depot, a representative from Procurement Services will be contacting you in the upcoming months to plan and schedule your transition. You can learn more about the improved procurement solution at the University website http://deacondepot.wfu.edu. Continue reading »
