Office Supplies through Office Max/ WATS International
All other office supplies at the main campus, Bay Ridge, and satellite clinic departments are provided through the State Contract Office Supply desktop delivery program:
WATS International - In February 2015 the SUNY Contract for Office Supply desktop delivery program (previously thru Staples) transitioned to a new NYS contract with OfficeDepot and it's subcontractor in the NYS downstate region, WATS International. The company names can be confusing since OfficeDepot merged with OfficeMax. Thus, the vendor name referred to in this program can be any one of these entities. DMC's State Procurement department provided training sessions during Feb 2015. The Program has about 400 specific common Office Supplies at NYS discounted rates available to Downstate departments utilizing State Funds for cost effectiveness and efficiency. This program provides departments with faster and easier ordering with desk top delivery, for most items by the next business day.
