Guidelines for Purchasing Furniture
Due to legislation which changed the State of Colorado statute mandating that public institutions of higher education purchase all office furniture from Colorado Correctional Industries (CCi,) the University has several options for office furniture purchases. CCi must still be allowed the opportunity to bid on projects which will exceed $150,000. “Office” furniture is defined as: task chairs, desks, workstations, conference tables, panel systems, bookcases, file cabinets, and other items which would traditionally be utilized in an institutional office setting.
It is highly recommended that end-users work with the Ergonomics Program in Environmental Health Services prior to purchasing an office chair and/or making design decisions about a workstation. Contact the Ergonomics Program at x1-2724 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an ergonomics evaluation. For more information regarding the ergonomics program, please visit http://www.ehs.colostate.edu/WErgo/Home.aspx
Placing an Order:
All office furniture should be purchased from one of the sources listed below. Where information is provided for a local dealer, we are limited to purchasing the particular line listed from that dealer (i.e., Haworth, Herman Miller, Knoll, and Steelcase.) If departments are unable to find products that meet their needs through one of these sources, please contact Greg Draughon in Procurement Services at x1-6343 or email@example.com.
