Some businesses have been receiving illegitimate email requests from Penn asking for basic information such as company website, catalogue, and contact information.  Messages we have seen so far purport to be from a former Penn employee and appear to originated from procurement@upenn.edu.  This message can simply be deleted and you may optionally report the fraud attempt with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (www.ic3.gov).   If you have responded to this bogus inquiry, please let us know for further evaluation by contacting us at Procure@upenn.edu.

Procurement Services Announces New Agreement with Supra-WB Mason for Office Products - Wednesday, June 5, 2024

 

Procurement Services is pleased to announce a new, five-year preferred contract agreement with Supra Office Solutions, a diversity-owned, West Philadelphia based supplier, and W.B. Mason, the second largest privately owned workplace products dealer in the U.S, as its preferred supplier of office products. The Supra-WB Mason agreement will take effect on July 1, 2024.

 

The new Supra-W.B. Mason preferred discount pricing agreement is the result of an RFP initiated by Penn in collaboration with Penn Medicine and the Philadelphia Area Collegiate Cooperative (PACC) to access best pricing, product availability including sustainable products, as well as in-depth reporting capabilities and a strong, dedicated customer service team.  

 

We will continue our relationship with Telrose-Office Depot through the end of June 2024 and thank them for the long partnership. Over the next few weeks as we transition from Telrose-Office Depot to Supra-W.B. Mason, our Supra-W.B. Mason reps will be on campus working to ensure a smooth changeover and we will be communicating upcoming trainings.

 

Penn’s dedicated sales reps are Hadid Thomas, hadid.thomas@supraos.com and Mark Fitzgerald, mark.fitzgerald@wbmason.com.  Please direct all pricing and service-related questions to either sales representative. 

 

To help celebrate this new partnership, W.B. Mason has invited Penn to attend their 2024 Philadelphia Consumer Show being held on June 12, 2024, at Citizens Bank Park.  Please register for this free event at the link here - listing Mark Fitzgerald as Penn’s customer rep. If registered by 6/7, transportation from Penn may be made available – email Mark Fitzgerald by 6/7 to schedule!
