The Procurement Services Center's fifth annual Supplier Showcase series on the University of Colorado campuses gives faculty and staff chances to meet with existing suppliers and to discover goods and services from potential new vendors.

Representatives from various campus departments also will be on hand to discuss a variety of topics, including sustainability and ethics. Procurement Service Center (PSC) staff will be available to answer questions.

More than 1,200 CU employees are expected to participate in the campus events:

  • Anschutz Medical Campus
    9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 9, RC2 Conference Room
  • CU-Boulder
    10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 15, UMC Glenn Miller Ballroom
  • UCCS
    10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 21, University Center Ballroom

Showcase sponsor Staples will be featured at each showcase. Staples' office supply partners also will be present. Representatives from Colorado Correctional Industries (CCI) will be in attendance. The division of the Colorado Department of Corrections sells furniture and other items manufactured by Colorado prison inmates.

"This year's showcases are off to a tremendous start. Showcase exhibitors will include suppliers from the hospitality and scientific industries, as well as other vendors offering an array of goods and services," said Penny Davis, small business liaison officer with PSC. "We invite all faculty and staff, regardless of their home campus, to join us at any or all of the showcases."

Davis encourages faculty and staff who would like to attend to register so that PSC can plan adequately. Complete information and a registration form is available at
