Procedure for Ordering Office Supplies

Blanket Purchase Orders (PO’s) should not be used for the purchase of office supplies from contracted university office supply vendors. Instead, departments may order office supplies using either or both methods described below.

  1. Workday Supplier Website (Punchout):  Office Supplier may be ordered from FAU contract suppliers directly in Workday using the Connect to Supplier Website requisition, aka Punchout. Please reference the Job Aid on the Purchasing Website for further information.

  2. pCard Method: (Online or in-store) University pCard holders can complete a setup form for one or both office supply vendors. Additional authorized internet users may be listed on the bottom portion of the form. Once completed, the form should be faxed to the account representative listed at the top of the form. Once established, sales tax will not be charged and the pCard holder will receive the FAU contract price at retail locations (or the retail pricing if it is lower).
