Sales calls to individual departments are not permitted unless requested by the Department and an appointment has been confirmed between the parties. Once an appointment has been made, the Sales Representative is responsible for notifying the Purchasing Office in writing of the time and date that they will be on campus.

Vendors are advised that campus visits are for informational purposes only and create no obligation on behalf of the University to make purchases from the vendor. Departments are not authorized to accept equipment from vendors on a trial basis and are not permitted to enter into contracts with vendors without the prior written approval of the BSU Purchasing Office.
