Buying Guide


Yale’s Buying Guide is designed to save you time in locating reputable and reliable suppliers. Some suppliers have elaborate contracts in place that provide the University with deep discounts on frequently purchased goods and services. Other supplier contracts are in place primarily for ease of use. Still others have no contract.  Because there are a variety of recommended approaches, be sure to note the recommended method buy-pay approach for each supplier in the Buying Guide.
