MSU to focus on vendors

STARKVILLE — Officials at Mississippi State University (MSU) are seeking input from existing and prospective commercial vendors. During November, the university plans to sponsor a series of information-sharing sessions designed to improve connections with current and future business partners.

Organized by the Office of Procurement and Contracts, the “Doing Business with MSU” program currently is inviting input from interested sectors of the business community to determine what information should be presented during next month’s training and which goods-and-services providers would benefit most from the sessions.

“We always are looking for ways to maximize the return on university resources,” said procurement director Don Buffum. “Working with our vendors and potential business partners helps us achieve best practices, obtain quality goods and services, and advance MSU’s mission of teaching, research and service.”

The sessions complement other efficiency initiatives underway on campus, he added.

By Oct. 31, businesses interested in the November sessions should send to Judy Shaw at jshaw@procurement.msstate.edu or fax (662) 325-2135 the following information: company name; description of the business (office supplies, IT consulting, road construction, etc.); contact person; e-mail and postal mailing addresses; and, probable number of attendees.
