Office Supplies through Staples

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:

Note: In January 2015 the State Contract Office Supply desktop delivery program (currently thru Staples) will be migrating to Office Max/ Wats International. The State Procurement department will be announcing training sessions that you will need to attend before being issued a login.

Staples: The DMC Procurement Department's Desktop Delivery Program for Common Office Supplies at NYS discounted rates has standardized about 400 specific office supply items available from the Staples Online Catalog to Downstate departments utilizing State Funds for cost effectiveness and efficiency. This program provides departments with faster and easier ordering with desk top delivery often by the next business day.

Set up Your Staples Access and account: State account holders must first contact State Purchasing Department (Portia John 718-270-1123) and designate a departmental coordinator (typically your department's administrator) to receive online Staples program training. Once trained, the departmental coordinator will receive a UserID and initial password to log into the program. An on-line shopping cart can be created for your frequent needs.


  • Log into
  • Create Your Shopping Cart, Submit Order
  • The Purchasing Department Coordinator reviews your order for funding availability and approval. Once approved, your order will be electronically processed by Staples and delivered to your internal destination on the following business day.
  • Ordering Items NOT on the DMC standardized Staples list: If your department wishes to order items that are NOT on the DMC-Staples standardized list, your department will need to process a standard State Purchase Requisition Form and attach a letter of justification. Your department's Vice President must approve your requisition before submitting the req to State Purchasing (DMC Mailbox 63). The requiistion will be processed through the normal manual State Purchasing process.

Research account holders should contact Research Purchasing Office (Ext 1118; 718-270-1118) to utilize the Research Foundation's Staples ordering process.

DMC Affiliated Companies (non-State Funds). All DMC Affiliates (Research Foundation, FSA, HSCB Foundation Inc, University Physicians of Brooklyn Inc, Children's Center of SUNY Brooklyn Inc, etc..) are welcomed and encouraged to use the DMC Staples program to receive the NYS program discounted rates, but must first set up a account for your affiliated company account. Contact the DMC Staples Account Executive at 800-950-1257 Ext 4676 to set up an online account for your DMC Affiliated company.
