Preferred Vendors offer the best services or discounts within their category and are strongly recommended as a first choice for placing orders.
Diversity Vendors are companies owned and operated by women or minority groups: a distinction supporting Procurement Services’s efforts to uphold supplier diversity development programs.
Green/Sustainable Vendors are companies whose daily operations or products have been consciously altered to reduce emissions and destructive practices to the environment.
User Account Required means that users must create a profile with a vendor and then login each time when shopping to receive discounts and specials available exclusively to Drexel.
Procurement Services continuously negotiates agreements with suppliers and vendors to offer discounted prices on goods and services to all Drexel University, Drexel University College of Medicine and The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University departments and offices. The list of vendors, presented here, is always changing as new contracts are created and old ones expire.
Please log into Smart Source via Drexel One to purchase goods from our enabled vendors.
For our other preferred vendors, PCardholders can simply use their Purchasing Card to place orders (up to the PCard single and monthly transaction limits) on the websites listed. For preferred vendor orders exceeding one's PCard limit, fully compliant Pcardholders may request a temporary PCard increase from firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests should contain the vendor name, the amount of the purchase, the cost center being charged for the purchase and any contracts or agreements that may be a part of the purchase should accompany the request. Please allow sufficient lead time for the request to be received, reviewed and action taken. Increases to individual PCardholders are made at the discretion of the PCard Administrator.
For purchases from all other vendors for any good or service, please log into Smart Source to place your order. There are multiple forms depending on the circumstances of the request: non-catalog purchase, sole source purchase, multi-year purchase, etc.
Specific transaction details, such as shipping information, billing address, restrictions, etc., are dependent upon which purchasing method is used and are referenced on the PCard and Smart Source sections of this website.
New Vendors are required to register via TSM even those we may have done business with in the past. If you enter a non-catalog or other order type in Smart Source and you search for a supplier and get no results, please use the enter manual function for the supplier on the form and provide a contact name, email address and phone number. EXCEPTION: honorariums and highly confidential POs or payments. In those cases, please email the W9 or W8 to smartsource@Drexel.edu. Once the supplier is created and activated, you will be notified.
