Social Responsibilities

Our commitment to social responsibilities include:
  • Leveraging the University‚Äôs buying power.
    Stores is able to offer customers best-value preferred contract pricing using eProcurement technology (eStores). This online ordering solution provides customers with a one-stop shop for quick product search and order capabilities. Orders are delivered same or next business day and reconciliation is easy with Stores electronic reports.

  • Supporting the missions of teaching, research, healthcare and facilities operations.
    Stores works collaboratively with departments on unique product replenishment requirements. These custom needs may range from delivering directly to janitorial closets to maintaining par levels of gases in OSU Wexner Medical Center facilities.

  • Promoting supplier diversity and responsible stewards of University resources and the environment.
    Stores continuously integrates environmental, social and economic goals into its business processes. Stores is committed to inclusion of environmentally-friendly products and supplier diversity in preferred supplier contracts and continuously works with departments to seek out opportunities to increase visibility of these agreements.
