Wageningen University & Research does not appreciate receiving unsolicited hard-copy catalogues and leaflets from suppliers. They are seen as an unjustified use of raw materials and energy.
The Purchasing department can inform suppliers on which product groups are covered by framework contracts with preferred suppliers (including office supplies, foreign travel, chemicals, furniture, copier paper). Contract managers monitor the quality of contracted suppliers by means of management discussions and audits.
Wageningen University & Research cooperates closely with other Dutch universities through the University Purchasing Platform (UPI).
