OSU has negotiated discounts with several new office furniture suppliers. With the goal of offering many furniture purchasing alternatives to OSU and its affiliates, these new supplier contracts represent 24 manufacturers, allowing options for any taste and any budget. These pricing agreements are available for use by OSU and its affiliates.
Furniture purchases can be from a variety of suppliers depending on the total cost of the purchase. Below you will find a list of suppliers presently on contract with OSU.
Key things to consider when purchasing furniture:
- If the total value of the purchase is $25,000 or greater, please contact Procurement so that an analyst can review and insure the supplier is quoting furniture from contracts which OSU can utilize.
- If pricing provided is not off preauthorized contracts, a competitive bidding process will need to be completed prior to ordering.
- If the furniture purchase involves any kind of installation please contact us at our general email address (or contact Construction Contract Administration) to see if the project qualifies as a BOLI Prevailing Wage Rate project.
Most suppliers allow testing of chairs prior to placing firm orders to insure proper fit for the end customer. It is highly recommended that staff test for fit, ergonomics and comfort before investing in a chair.
