CIC Purchasing Agreement Offers Increased Value on Office Supplies

Dec 29, 2015

Recently the CIC Purchasing Consortium (CICPC) amended its Master Agreement with OfficeMax for office products in order to create a new partnering arrangement that adds even greater value through cost savings to its members and other higher education institutions across the country.  This agreement was initially put in place for CICPC members through a competitive procurement process managed by a national cooperative.  With this amendment, the term of the agreement has been extended through 2020, pricing has been improved for a wide array of office products including exceptional pricing for paper and toner, and incentives made available for volume purchasing and ordering efficiency.

The CIC Purchasing Consortium is pleased to make this sourcing opportunity available not only to its members and affiliated institutions, but to other members of the higher education community as well.  To learn more about this agreement, interested higher education procurement professionals should contact their local OfficeMax representative or contact John Saunders at or Pam Pedler at
