How Do I....Buy Office Supplies?

The Georgia Department of Administrative Services has entered into a statewide with Office Max for General Office Supplies and Staples for Paper and Toner.  The contract offers:

  • Discounted prices on office products
  • Next business day desk-top delivery
  • Ability to submit orders online or by phone
  • Use of the P-Card for in-store purchases as well as purchases on-line or by phone
  • Easy returns process

Note:  Purchases of furniture and computer equipment must NOT be made from this source (as there exist other statewide contracts for these items.)

Use of these contracts should be a department's first source for office supplies.  In the unlikely event that desired items are not found in the online catalogs (links below), please send an email describing the needed purchase to

To assist the Office of Procurement with processing your e-Procurement requisitions for office supplies from Office Max more quickly, a "Browse Only" account has been created and for Paper and Toner a "Price Check Only" account has been created.  This will give faculty/staff access to the Staples Statewide Contract website in order to see what is available on State Contract and the actual costs of such items.  PLEASE DO NOT USE OFFICEMAX.COM WEBSITE OR STAPLES.COM WEBSITE ANY LONGER for pricing as using these websites will delay processing time for an order since the prices have to be updated to reflect state contract pricing, and for goods not on state contract included on requisition comparable substitutes must be found, and/or alternate vendors located.
