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.
