NJ Higher Education Purchasing Association DBE Fair 2009 How To Do Business With Public And Private Schools

  1. 1. New Jersey Higher Education Purchasing Association Disadvantage Business Development Fair June 17, 2009 How to Do Business with Private & Public Colleges and Universities
  2. 2. WELCOME <ul><li>  The members of NJHEPA are grateful for the opportunity to meet with and to share information that may prove helpful in your quest to do business with the various institutions.  Our members consist of both public and private institutions of Higher Education.  While there are differences in the methods that business may be conducted within the various institutions, each institution has a fiduciary responsibility to the faculty, staff, students, and our taxpayers to provide the best service at the best price. </li></ul><ul><li>Public institutions are governed by State regulations, but we are semi-autonomous.   Our members who are private institutions, while not governed by the State of NJ are governed by their internal regulations, which in many respects mirror those of the public sector.  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>I think we speak for all of our members when we say that each institution is committed to attracting qualified disadvantaged companies into our growing ranks of vendors; providing opportunities and support.  It is our hope and intention to help you grow in size, profit from the experience both in the business sense and in profit (not too much profit) and therefore provide additional employment opportunities within your communities. And that ladies and gentlemen is the purpose of this Fair. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>

  6. 6. NJHEPA Disadvantaged Business Development Fair <ul><li>Eligibility to Conduct Business with William Paterson University and Montclair State University applies to most if not all public institutions.

  7. 7. NJHEPA Disadvantaged Business Development Fair <ul><li>All public Colleges and Universities are agencies of the State of New Jersey. Autonomous in many respects, they must comply with statutes and regulations of the State in its purchasing functions. Purchasing Offices have been authorized to conduct and conclude bidding, negotiations concerning prices and conditions of purchase. </li></ul><ul><li>Invoicing: Each College or University is solely responsible for cost that it incurs and has its own Accounts Payable Department. All invoices should be sent to Accounts Payable, not the ordering department. </li></ul><ul><li>All vendors providing goods or services should only do so after receiving a purchase order issued by the Purchasing office.

The procurement office will become involved if a purchase order is required to confirm the actual purchase. </li></ul><ul><li>The department can also utilize a Procurement Card for purchases up to $1,000.00 or $2,500.00 depending on the signature authority of the cardholder. </li></ul><ul><li>All purchases of goods or services (with or without a contract or lease) greater than $10,000.00 must have at least 2 written bids. </li></ul><ul><li>All purchases greater than $25,000.00 must have a minimum of 3 written bids. </li></ul>

This status is accomplished through the RFP process on an “as needed basis”. </li></ul><ul><li>These RFPs tend to be high dollar, multi year agreements (i.e. office supply’s, copiers, furniture, AV equipment etc. ) </li></ul><ul><li>Bidding by the department can be waived if the item / service being obtained is from a preferred vendor or a sole source vendor. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Purchase Order Process <ul><li>The originating department will initiate a Purchase Requisition and attach the vendor quotes to the document. </li></ul><ul><li>Procurement will verify the approval signatures and budget balance. </li></ul><ul><li>If the purchase requisition is accepted?
