By Staff

The sixth annual Supplier Showcase series on the University of Colorado campuses is set for September. The events provide faculty and staff opportunities to meet existing suppliers and discover goods and services from potential new vendors.

The showcase schedule is:

  • University of Colorado Boulder: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7, University Memorial Center, Glenn Miller Ballroom
  • University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus: 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, RC2, Conference Room
  • University of Colorado Colorado Springs: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21, University Center, Berger Hall

Procurement Service Center (PSC) staff will be available to answer questions about fiscal procedures, travel rules and the new CU Marketplace. Representatives from various campus departments also will be available to discuss a variety of topics, including sustainability and ethics.

Showcase sponsors Staples, Dell and Xerox, along with their supply partners, will be featured at each location. Also, representatives from Colorado Correctional Industries (CCI) and Christopherson Business Travel will attend. CCI is a division of the Colorado Department of Corrections that sells furniture and other items manufactured by Colorado prison inmates.

“This year’s showcases are off to a tremendous start: We have changed the event hours slightly to better serve our attendees,” said Penny Davis, PSC small business liaison officer. “Showcase exhibitors will include suppliers from the hospitality and scientific industries, as well as other vendors offering an array of goods and services. We invite all faculty and staff, regardless of their home campus, to join us at any or all of the showcases.”
