OSU partners with REMI for their Equipment Maintenance Management Program (EMMP). With this program, OSU can consolidate multiple service agreements and extended warranties with one agreement that costs less and is more flexible than the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or Independent Service Organization (ISO) contract.

 

The benefits of Remi’s EMMP includes the following: 

→Savings.  The program will save up to 25% off current service contract pricing with the quality and coverages of your existing service. 

→One Agreement.  Remi can consolidate multiple contracts into one comprehensive agreement, with the flexibility to customize your coverage while Remi manages all service events.

→Vendor of Choice.  Employees of (University/College Name) may utilize their vendor of choice for service on their covered equipment. However, there are some cases where Remi will need to rely on its extensive vendor network to ensure they are dispatching the right vendor for the service being requested—either the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or an ISO to repair their equipment.

→Focus on Education and Research.  Remi will handle all the service requests, purchase orders, claims, etc. so our educators and researchers can reinvest their time and money saved on what they do best.

OSU has established contracts with several companies for moving, relocation and logistical services at significantly discounted rates. Services must be arranged through the contact listed in the contract summary to be eligible for the discount. These contracts have been established for OSU official business and their use is voluntary.

All reimbursements paid to, or on behalf of a new employee for Moving and Relocation are 100% tax reportable by Business Affairs to be included as wages. Under Section 11048(a) of the new tax laws, the exclusion from gross income for qualified moving expenses is suspended. See FIS Policy for Relocation and Moving – FIS 03-120-404.
